Community School of the Arts (CSA)


The Community School of the Arts offers classes, camps and performance opportunities for children ages 2 through 18.



Kansas City Young Audiences' CSA is the only program to offer classes in dance, theatre, music, and visual art in the same place, at the same time. Private instruction is also available in vocal and instrumental music. CSA classes meet after school and on Saturdays. During the summer, full and half-day, week long Summer Camps offer outstanding opportunities for children to express themselves.





Despite the challenges presented by Covid-19, our mission continues to inspire us. We are determined to find innovative ways to connect children with quality arts experiences.
