The Dixie Youth Theatre is designed to provide a distinctive theatre education program that will empower youth to embrace a life of excellence and creativity through their artistic abilities and open doors to imagination and self-confidence. Theatre skills are worthwhile, valuable life skills grounded in discipline and a work ethic that is crucial for any craft.
The DYT reserves the right to dismiss and not enroll participants for the following reasons:
The Dixie Youth Theatre is sponsored in part by a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission. When the Tennessee Arts Commission was created in 1967, it was given a special mandate by the General Assembly to stimulate and encourage the presentation of performing, visual and literary arts throughout the state and to encourage public interest in the cultural heritage of Tennessee. Through a variety of programs, the Commission has encouraged excellence in artistic expression through the state’s artists and arts organizations. That commitment has continued to expand through the years to ensure that the citizens of Tennessee have access to, and the opportunity to participate in the arts.
