What are the dates and times for classes?
Classes are usually held on Tuesday evenings for a period of 8 to 10 weeks each fall, and again in the spring. Classes begin at 5:30 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m. Specific dates and locations will be announced as soon as possible.

How early may I drop my child off?
We ask that students do not arrive any earlier than 15 minutes prior to class time. While NYT staff may be on premises, they are busy setting up and cannot be responsible for supervising children until that time. We also ask that you pick your children up promptly when classes are over so that the class coordinator my complete their duties and head home to their family.
Will dinner be served during class time?
No, your child will need to eat dinner before or after classes. We do, however, have a snack bar available to hold them over. Snacks range from $.50 to $1.50
Do your teachers have background checks?
Absolutely! In fact, any adults that are volunteering or working around the students have completed background checks, as well as having had child protection training.
Will there be a Showcase?
No, there will not be a showcase or a recital. Our goal is for teachers to focus on skill-building, rather than a “show.” All of the weeks of class are dedicated to learning new skills, as well as improving and building upon prior skills, which can then be transferred to auditioning and performing in an NYT Broadway-style musical production. Our camps also give kids an opportunity to perform in a showcase at the end of the week to highlight what they learned during camp.
What if I have other questions?
