What Does the CBY Community Say?

5/5
We joined CBY in the fall and I was shocked at how quickly the Director and instructors knew my daughter and family. Even during a pandemic you can feel the community vibe. The instructors are phenomenal, friendly, and you can feel the quality in what they teach. My daughter loves it and I look forward to taking other programs with CBY!

My daughter started in the Tot Dance program this fall and it has been a wonderful experience so far! She has learned a great deal over the past few months and looks forward to it every week. We are really grateful to be a part of this awesome community. Their passion for what they do comes through constantly. Thanks, CBY team!

I can't say enough wonderful things about CBY Music and all of the programs they offer. My children have been a part of the CBY Music family (voice, theatre, camps, concerts & skill development programs) for a couple of years now and it has been amazing to watch the passion and growth in confidence both kids have been developing!

The chairs are stacked, the dressing room is empty and the curtains are closed; THAT’S A WRAP! 🥺

Annie Jr has closed and all that remains are the wonderful memories we all made this week. Rave reviews, standing ovations for every show and a team spirit that helped every Showstopper to elevate and burst forward.

What a magical whirlwind theatre can be.

If you came to see our show, thank you. We hope you enjoyed it.

And now we start looking towards next season. What will our next show be? 🤔

…until then, Waterdown…🎭
