Youth in Arts

The greatest gift we can give our children is the ability to express themselves! The Idaho Falls Youth Arts Centre is devoted to just that: teaching youth to express themselves through the many forms of performance art!

Events, classes, and workshops have been sponsored over the past 20+ years including Extravadance, after-school performing arts classes, audition workshops, technical theater training, beginning strings, and many more!

"IFYAC continues to put on high quality shows and mentorship opportunities!" The choirs, strings, dance, and summer theater programs are all 5-stars!!!  

Fall Musical


We are excited to announce Annie as our next Fall Musical!  With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City.

Performances will open at the Frontier Center for the Performing Arts on November 15, 16, & 18, 19,20, 2024. Check back for information about auditions.  


Dance Program

The Dance Program continues to awe and inspire us through movement and grace in the develoipment and exploration of contemporary and modern genres.  Aside from developing coordination and spacial skills, youth learn to express themselves in this unique and effective way.

Weekly classes are determined by enrollment numbers. Check back soon for information about upcoming classes.

Strings Program

The Strings Program mission is to encourage youth grades 3-6 to experience self-expression through music and encourage participation in school music programs.  The program teaches Beginning and Intermediate strings and offers violins at a very reasonable rental price.

Students learn to read music, play the violin, and the joy of performing as a group to a live audience. Scholarships are available!

Mentorship Program

We believe in teaching by example - and mentoring allows youth to work side by side with professionals to develop skills in the performing arts. Mentorships promote artistic development by widening perspectives, increasing confidence, and improving leadership and communications skills.

Mentorships are available in all of our programs!

How you can be a part of our family...

Idaho Falls Youth Arts Centre is an organization literally born within a community of volunteers. From the very beginning of the first Idaho Falls Little Theatre production to the inception of the Idaho Falls Youth Arts Centre, to today, volunteers have had, and continue to have, a vital and invaluable role at IFYAC. We are a diverse organization interested in volunteers with a wide variety of talents, skills, and willingness to educate and enrich the lives of youth through the performing arts.
