Kent Youth Theatre - stage and screen academy

Kent Youth Theatre is a stage and screen academy in Canterbury, Kent

Youth Theatre in Canterbury KentKYT Performing Arts Classes in Canterbury have something for everyone from age 3 to 103 !

Our students and staff work in a safe and friendly environment.

Rooted in PLAY - the most natural of all instincts - the students grow in confidence at their own pace and level through involvement in the performing arts. 

Classes at KYT run on Saturday and are split into age groups as follows:-

stagebugs - 3 to 7 year olds @ 9:15 - 10:30

We introduce our younger members to the Performing Arts by playing drama games, singing, dancing and doing acting exercises all geared towards their final showcase performance.

 Our Little Bugs are encouraged to express themselves, to grow with confidence and even the quietest of bugs find their voice by the time they graduate to the older class.

KYT - 8 to 20 year olds @ 9:30 - 12:30

Each age group is provided a new theme every term to explore through performance towards a showcase at the end of the term.

With a new challenge each term, the students experience a wide range of performance skills and techniques, resulting in enhancement of their personal repertoire.

We also have JUST BIG KIDS for Adults - contact us for details

Our adults have their own classes and perform their own plays as well as alongside the KYT students when required.
