Are you a CYT student age 12-19? If so, what are you doing June 21-24? If you said “attending CYT’s EXPO“, then you win a gold star! Read on below to learn more about what you get to do during EXPO!
All CYT students, ages 12 – 19, are invited to come to EXPO. Some students may be involved in HYPE or Improvathon, but those are just portions of the whole student experience that takes place at EXPO. When HYPE and IMPROV are not taking place, those students are encouraged to join their other fellow CYT students in fun activities, workshops, free time and more!
CYT AFTER DARK
CYT After Dark takes place each night around 9pm. It’s the perfect hang out spot where there will be massive dance parties, glow sticks flying through the air, special guests, prize giveaways, coffee-talk, games, talent shows and MORE! If you’re a student at EXPO, it’s the number one place to be!
ACT, SING, DANCE, LIVE
These four little words pretty much sum up CYT. We’ll be focusing on these themes all throughout our time at EXPO with workshops, activities, special guest speakers and interviews, and more!

FOLLOW THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD TO DISNEY
Have you ever wanted to perform at a Disney theme park? Come find out from those who have worked or are currently working as some of Disney’s most notable characters at theme parks both here and abroad!
KNOW YOUR TYPE – “Are you a good witch? Or a bad witch?”
Who do you think you are…onstage? Do you keep getting cast in the same type of role? Is there a disconnect with the types of roles you want and the types of roles you get cast in? At this workshop, you will get an honest read from fellow actors & an experienced director about how you come across when you audition. This workshop hopes to help actors hone in on what type(s) of character(s) they are currently most suited to playing. We will also discuss the value in actors having a few well-rehearsed stock characters in their performance arsenals.
CYT ACTION ARTS – REALITY TV CHALLENGE
CYT’s, first ever, Reality TV show challenge! Be a part of the pilot episode where you will be broken up into teams, given specific challenges that you have to complete, film behind the scenes interviews and more! The winners will be announced live on closing night of EXPO and the television show will be released on CYT TV. It’s bound to be a ton of fun!
