Founded on the model of weekly homeschool co-ops, the academy gives driven homeschool and daytime students the chance to focus on the arts wholeheartedly. This performing arts track provides a full day’s access to instruction that will nurture creativity, foster artistry, and prepare students for transition into college-level arts programs with ease. Built upon the diverse talents needed for a performing arts career, students of all ages can focus on all aspects of the performing arts at the technical and style level, to include choreography, creative writing, American Sign Language (ASL), performance, acting, directing and more.

The available training opportunities will be in subjects such as, but not limited to: Ballet, Stretching, Strength and Technique, Choreography and Performance, Creative Writing for Script and Stage, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Audition/warm-up Techniques- vocal and physical, ASL and Performance, Acting and Improv Technique, Etc.

The ultimate goal is to provide two levels (elementary and secondary) of focused artistic instruction in a wide variety of fields. To create dancers and actors that are even better equipped for CYT performance opportunities, as well as their own futures. For high school students, the goal is to also focus on collegiate or post-graduation level opportunities, including audition techniques, resume' building and more.
 

Winter Core Class Descriptions


Core Class 1: Yoga
Teacher: Brittany Walters
  • This basic yoga class will be done at a gentle pace in order to learn the foundational poses of yoga – opening, standing, shoulder and hip exercises, inversions, twists, backwards and forward bends, salutations, and finishing poses. Students will learn about the principles of alignment and how to flow into the pose using breathing techniques. Complete relaxation and breathing techniques will be practiced in order to allow students to find a deep connection with God. Through this connection, students will be able to practice worship through stillness.

Core Class 2: Jazz/Musical Theater Dance
Teacher: Bailey Vincent-Tuesdays, Ashley Culberson- Fridays
  • Musical Theatre class will focus on learning proper dance technique while exploring the various dance styles used in Broadway shows. Class curriculum is based on ballet technique layered with Broadway style jazz movement and includes a proper warm-up, stretches, isolations, across-the-floor progressions, and combinations. Emphasis will also be placed on learning performance skills such as connecting with the audience and telling a story through dance and facial expressions.

Core Class 3a: Creative Writing for Stage and Screen
Teacher: Bailey Vincent
  • Always wanted to write your own play but didn’t have the tools or struggled with where to start? This class will introduce fundamentals of writing for the camera and the theater, including dramatic structure, character development, and engaging dialogue.  Let your imagination go wild and see what great stories come to life!

Core Class 3b:  Acting: Scenes and Monologues
Teacher: Anna Hansen
  • Do you feel lost when it comes time to memorize or interpret a monologue?  Is acting something you are interested in but have never had the chance to do?  Or are you an experienced performer who cannot help but feel unsure of what to do when it comes to creating a character?  Throughout the course of this class, students will work to address these and other issues that come with performing onstage.  This class will empower students interested in performing by reviewing the essentials of performing as an actor onstage.  This includes characterization, vocalization, physicality, script analysis, movement, and brief analysis of characters and motivations.
 
Core Class 4a: Improv and Comedy 
Teacher: Anna Hansen
  • What do you do when you are in the midst of a performance and the set falls down?  Or a prop breaks mid-use?  One of the best skills an actor has is the ability to improvise, or create something in the moment.  In this class, students will learn the basic rules and guidelines for performance improvisation.  They will use these skills through a variety of in-class activities, including both structured and unstructured scene work and play.   Students will leave the class feeling empowered as actors and individuals and have a great time in the process!
 
Core Class 4b: American Sign Language
Teacher: Bailey Vincent
  • The course is designed to develop the skills and knowledge needed to communicate in American Sign Language. This course introduces basic sign language vocabulary and fingerspelling. In addition, students will be introduced to aspects of American Deaf culture and history.  With an emphasis in performance, this class will learn and demonstrate ASL through the lens of the arts and performance.
