Classes FAQ

What can I expect from our classes?
Every session, CYT Dallas offers 10-week theater arts classes to children ages 4 – 18. These two-hour after-school classes are held once a week in Flower Mound Texas. On the final week of classes, students will display a portion of what they've learned by participating in a SHOWCASE for family and friends.  At the showcase, students will present a brief performance to highlight what they mastered throughout the session.
Do I need to have prior theatrical experience?
No.  We can teach you everything you need to know! However, we sometimes offer classes that require prerequisites, so make sure to check our class listing for more details.

Who receives e-mail communication through the website?
The primary e-mail contact listed in your family account will receive the e-mails if necessary. 

Does taking a class automatically guarantee my student a spot in a show?
Currently, yes. CYT holds open auditions for students ages 8-18 who are registered in a current CYT class.  Once enrolled, you can audition for a show. Gratefully, we have not had to make any cuts due to overly large cast sizes.

What does my child need to bring to class?
Students can bring a snack and water bottle to class. However, we do sell snack items during our
15-minute break time.

What if my child doesn’t know anyone?
Many of our students are new to CYT. We encourage a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere where kids will meet new friends.

What should my child wear to class?
We encourage comfortable to dance and play-friendly clothing each day. Please encourage your child to wear closed-toed shoes with a back of some kind (please no flip flops or open-toed shoes). Your teacher will have more specifics depending on the specialty of your class.

How do you handle allergies?
Please let us know of any allergies when you register online. Our staff will be alerted to the allergy and maintain a high level of awareness.

Is there a nurse on staff?
We do not have a nurse on staff. However, each location has a Coordinator that oversees the administration of the class and will take care of any first aid needs.

What is your cancellation/refund policy?
We offer refunds if they are prior to the 3rd week of class. However, there is a $25 cancellation fee, and each class is prorated. The amount refunded to you will be your total with those fees subtracted. Please visit our comprehensive refund policy if you have further questions.

Can I sign up on the first day of class?
Yes! We'll meet you at the door! However, many of our classes fill up quickly so we encourage early registration. 

Is there a sibling discount?
Yes! The discount is $15 off of the cost of tuition for up to three siblings. 

What is your pick-up/drop-off policy?
We take drop-off and pick-up seriously. We use a software called "Planning Center Check-ins" that you might be familiar with. Check-in and Check-Out at CYT events will happen via an iPad. Mobile Check-In tags ensure checking in is quick and easy. Mobile Check-In Tags will be emailed to you, can be saved on your phone, and can be sent to any student or "Trusted People" responsible for picking up your student.
TAGS ARE MANDATORY FOR PICK UP. No student will be released without a printed tag, mobile tag, or self-release status. We would like for children to be dropped off no earlier than 15 minutes before class starts and picked up promptly at dismissal time.
