Welcome to Central Arkansas Youth Arts Collective at Empire!

Welcome to the Central Arkansas Youth Arts Collective (CAYAC) in partnership with Empire Kids. We're thrilled to embark on an artistic journey where we cultivate the innate talents of young artists in Saline County and Central Arkansas. We provide a stage for children to unleash their creativity and bolster their self-assurance.


Our journey begins with theater technique and performance classes, where we guide children in acting, mastering stage presence, and perfecting delivery. However, our artistic vision extends beyond the theater. We're excited to one day soon expand our program to feature dance, music, and technical theater classes, offering a well-rounded performing arts curriculum. Stay tuned for more info as we begin to grow!


Join us in our commitment to nurturing creativity and personal development in our young people. Together, we can mold the future artists of Central Arkansas. Welcome to CAYAC, where young talents bloom into artists.
