Dance Do you enjoy dance? Come and get involved at CHYA and see what possibilities are waiting for you

CHYA provides a platform for young and emerging artists to take creative risk and to conceive relevant and contemporary programming in a creative and inclusive environment.

Dance is an integral part of Courthouse Youth Arts, and while it is something that has not always been seen by our audience, it’s something that has begun to emerge in recent years. Dance as a medium is growing in popularity and CHYA is striving to help this remarkable medium flourish. Having partnered with Chunky Move, as well as Lord of the Flies, CHYA is slowly becoming a hub for dancers, giving them the chance to express themselves.
