COVID-19 UPDATE 6/3/2020

CYT KC will be following all state and local guidelines concerning Covid-19 as we plan for summer camps. We have formed a Covid-19 Task Force which includes parents, medical professionals, teachers, attorneys and business leaders. The purpose of this group is to create health and procedural guidelines for the safety of students, families, and staff members. Updates will be posted here on our website and/or emailed as necessary. Read the most recent update HERE.

Summer Dance

Let's stay accountable together this summer by participating in CYT KC Dance Studio's Virtual Dance Camp! We can't wait to get together again in person, but until then we are ready to work hard and have fun this summer with three leveled track options. From beginner to advanced dance classes, there will be something for everyone. Each track runs for three weeks in June and features six live Zoom classes per week. See each track for a detailed schedule, and make plans to dance this summer with CYT KC! Please email Liz Watkins at dancedirector@cytkc.org with any questions.

For college students: Are you looking to brush up on your dance skills over the summer? Join us for a three-week Zoom class that work on strength and flexibility along with jazz and ballet technique!

Day Camps

With musical theater, drama, tech theater, improv, and more, there's a day camp for everyone! Explore the different types of camps we offer, and find the perfect fit for you! 

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid-19, we have made changes to our regular summer programming. All day camps will be held at our CYT Studios (6800 W. 153rd St.). They will be capped at lower numbers in order to adhere to social distancing guidelines. More specific health safety guidelines are being developed by our Covid-19 task force and will be provided to families.

A Full Show in One Week?
Yes! These camps give students the opportunity to learn, rehearse, and perform a full Broadway-style musical in just one week!

(Typically these camps are overnight-style; however, due to the current guidelines and regulations, campers will not stay overnight this year. PLEASE NOTE: Due to increased cost for items/staff necessary to implement health and safety protocols, we are unable to offer a price drop for these camps even though they are not overnight.)
