Teachers

A CYT Teacher’s mission is to train and instruct students in such a way as to promote the development of character, self-esteem, and confidence. CYT teachers are qualified and experienced in the area in which they teach. They have been trained in the CYT methods of instruction and agree with the CYT values and outcome goals.  All CYT teachers have been background checked and adhere to our CYT Mission and Values. Our teachers truly care about their students and provide a constructive and fun environment for them to learn.

Showcase

Parents, friends, and relatives are invited to attend CYT's Showcase performance on the last day / evening of classes, free of charge! Showcase is the grand finale of each session of classes, at which every class makes a 5-10 minute presentation of something they have learned and rehearsed during the session. Don't miss the action!

A CYT-NI alum, she began her adventure with CYT at a summer camp in 2009. Her time in CYT was an instrument God used to grow her as a performer, dancer, friend and individual. Since then, Charlsie has taught multiple classes as well as choreograph for CYT-NI. Her other pursuits include homemaking, writing fiction, helping homeschool her sweet sister, and spending as much time outside with her husband as possible.

Training under Chris Tortora and John Zimmerman, she has worked in theme parks such as Gatorland Orlando, Silverwood, and Universal Studios, as well as in films and commercials. She has driven monster trucks, performed multiple body burns, and done high falls up to 40 feet, but her favorite stunt is a cool fight scene.


Grace Dougall

For as long she can remember, Grace Dougall has dreamed of being a stunt woman. As a child, she’d watch superhero movies then run outside to recreate her favorite fight scenes. Training under Chris Tortora, Grace landed her first stunt job as a member of the Silverwood Stunt Team. With 4 years of stunt experience, including high falls, hand-to-hand stage combat, martial arts and high ropes training, Grace is excited to share her passion for stunt work with CYT students. When she is not teaching stunts, long-boarding with her dog or developing new combat skills, you’ll find Grace leading guests through the aerial ropes courses at Tree2Tree Adventure Park.

Jessica firmly believes that through theater arts education a student can develop greater self awareness, empathy, discipline, teamwork, focus, passion, joy and confidence! Her goal is to cultivate an environment where every class, every production, every interaction, allows each student passing through CYT’s doors to feel, included, uplifted and inspired. Jessica is incredibly excited to be taking on such a delightful classic as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dream Coat!
