Kansas City Young Audiences Programs

Kansas City Young Audiences partners with professional teaching artists to provide three strands of programming to engage all youth in the arts, promote creativity and inspire success in education.

Community School of the Arts

Opened in 2004, the Community School of the Arts (CSA) provides students within our community a comprehensive arts experience that inspires them to discover and develop their unique talents.  

The CSA offers classes and camps in dance, theatre, music and visual  to children after-school, on Saturdays and throughout the summer.  Learn more about the Community School of the Arts.


School and Community Programs

KCYA’s original programming places the finest professional artists in the classroom to deliver arts programs integrated with core curriculum. Educators, PTA’s, librarians, and community service providers can select from a wide variety of quality programs that are approved by educators and support curricular standards.  

With performances, workshops, and residencies in nearly every artistic discipline and covering numerous academic topics, educators look to KCYA to enhance and reinforce their students’ classroom learning.    Learn more about School & Community Programs.
