Welcome New Chamber Member: Young Actors' Theatre Camp

Young Actors' Theatre Camp was founded in 2001 by Shawn Ryan and John Ainsworth. "We are proud to say that we have created a program unlike any other at YATC. Over the years, thousands of students have come through our doors - many of whom have gone on to attend top performing arts schools and work in TV, film, national tours, and even Broadway!"

"When we were bit by the performing bug in our first drama class, our parents didn’t know where to turn to or who to call. How does one get a leg up in the professional world when they have no professional experience? YATC is part of the answer. We are your one stop shop for the ins and outs of showbiz where you child can learn from working actors, singers, dancers, directors, choreographers, and professionals from all areas of the arts. " - Shawn Ryan

Developed by a team of amazing instructors, this multi-award winning program focuses on discovering and developing each individual student’s talents in ALL the areas of the performing arts.

Classes are all taught by working actors, singers, directors, dancers casting directors, writers, designers, agents, managers, and producers who bring their professional experiences and inspirations directly to the classroom. There is nothing quite like learning ‘how to sell a song’ from Sutton Foster or learning the ‘Safety Dance’ from Glee’s Heather Morris or learning ‘how to write great lyrics’ from Darren Criss while he serenades you.

All programs are designed with each camper in mind regardless of age or experience level. From intensive 1-day workshops to our Overnight Camps.
