About CFCArts Children and Youth Arts

The CFCArts Youth Programs are designed to train and educate young performers, age 3 through 12th grade, to become skilled in the areas of the performing arts through musical theatre, dance, choral programs and much more. The Children and Youth Arts program has grown into an artistic community where each young performer is given the tools needed to become a successful, confident artist and the means to carry those skills throughout life.

We want to provide the young people of Central Florida with a place to use their artistic talents, as well as be a venue for our children and youth to learn the value of giving back to the community, through the gift of music. Performers will participate in community events throughout the season and the funds raised during each performance will help provide summer music camps and outreach programs to children in underserved areas of our community.
