Will transportation be provided?

For an additional fee, students enrolled in YAS! can be transported from their school via the DMR Bus.

We plan to provide transportation from the following schools: Burnley Moran, Johnson, Venable, Jackson-Via, Agnur Hurt, and Mountain View, and there will be a small charge for transportation.

What will YAS! students be doing?

Theater beginners and experienced young thespians will have the chance to reach their highest peak with daily artistic creation. All of the theatrical arts will be covered: acting, dancing, singing, and technical theater (costumes, lights, sound). We will also introduce students to specialty performing arts such as improv, stand-up comedy, mime, etc.
