CYT NYC staff and local volunteers teamed up last Saturday to give a taste of CYT to New Yorkers!
We were invited to provide 30 minutes of stage programming for kids in Manhattan’s Financial District at the 5th annual Summer Streets Festival. Summer Streets is sponsored by the NY Dept of Transportation and opens up nearly seven miles of New York City’s streets for recreation (ever wanted to zip line through the skycrapers?) and local entertainment (like us!).
During CYT NYC’s stage segment, passers-by stopped to learn portions of popular musical theater numbers including “You Can’t Stop the Beat” and “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.” A few participants even chose to brave the stage and join the CYT NYC Team, performing a final showcase for their friends and family.
Onlookers smiled from ear to ear and bounced to the beat as the excitement and fun spilled off the stage and into the streets!
CYT NYC is especially thankful to God for providing great weather despite the forecast for rain.
Seeing the enthusiasm of all involved on Saturday has heightened everyone’s anticipation for the launch of CYT NYC’s inaugural fall season of classes and our first show, “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.”
Happiness is… experiencing CYT!
