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!

A very special thank you to our good friend Sandra Gillis of Premier Artists' Management INC. for coming down to the studio to lead our agent showcase this morning. A small group of CBY students auditioned for Sandra and received some valuable feedback and auditioning experience. Some amazing opportunities on the horizon for some of our auditionees! Well done everyone! 🎉
