Gallo Center Youth Academy

GCYA is back for a special six-week session to celebrate the holiday season! Classes begin November 10th. Register today!


A collection of short stories comes to life for GCYA students with Holly Jolly Follies! Students in all sessions will take on the roles of new holiday characters including Rachel and Mrs. Greenberg as they celebrate Hanukah; Pedro and Pepita who discover the true meaning of Christmas; and even Bob the “Blast Off” Reindeer as they share their stories of the most wonderful time of the year!

This special six-week session takes into account all COVID-19 safety protocols while still allowing students to learn, collaborate and engage in person!

  • To allow for proper social distancing, classes are offered just once a week
  • All classes will take place on the Gallo Center for the Arts stages
  • In lieu of a fully-staged performance, parents/guardians are invited to Parent Visitation Week during the week of December 14th
