    The Our Kids review of Bravo Academy for the Performing Arts

    our take

    Bravo Academy is ideal for kids who want to make performing arts a bigger part of their lives. Instructors here have a talent for energizing students’ enthusiasm for music, singing, and dance. This arises from over 15 years of experience teaching hundreds of GTA and Ontario students. Having staged more than 100 productions, along with showcases, cabarets, and recitals, their wealth of experience makes them an assured leader in teaching. The professional facilities here—including private studios for vocal and instrumental lessons, a rehearsal hall, and a full studio theatre—further attest to Bravo’s dedication to excellence. For all of that, instructors (many of them top performers themselves) have also cultivated a reputation for making learning enjoyable and entertaining. Parents and alumni praise teachers’ holistic vision of developing students as artists and performers, certainly, but also as individuals.

    The faculty is first rate, sharing not only their talent and teaching skills with students, but helping them to become mature and balanced young men and women

    Our daughter Rayna, now 15 years old, has been with Bravo Academy since she was seven, and with Bravo's help, we have seen her grow both as an artist and emotionally over these eight years. Under the voice teaching of Artistic Director Melissa Bencic, Rayna has developed a mature classical and music theatre voice that even now surprises us every time she performs. Because of her association with Bravo, Rayna has won multiple awards, been admitted into a prominent arts high school, and of course she has been in many productions and recitals at Bravo Academy over many years. We have also seen her develop as a performer, not just a musician. At Bravo, she participates in music theatre, voice lessons, dance lessons, piano and theory lessons, even ukulele lessons! At the same time, we have watched Bravo itself develop over the years, from a small music theatre school into a mature institution that is now capable of producing performers at all levels of the performing arts. The faculty is first rate, sharing not only their talent and teaching skills with students, but helping them to become mature and balanced young men and women. Members of the faculty, including Grammy nominated pianist Kara Huber, are themselves professional performers, adding an unparalleled excitement to the atmosphere at Bravo. I can, without reservation, give Bravo Academy the highest recommendation as an all around academy for the performing arts. ... Show More

    The performing arts training available at a Bravo is second to none and my daughter has made friends for life

    Better than any performing arts school in Toronto! My daughter trained at Bravo Academy for 5 years, moving up the various levels of music theatre troupes and taking private vocal lessons. The end result was that she got accepted into every vocal performance university program that she applied to (including U of T, McGill and UBC) and had several scholarship offers. The performing arts training available at a Bravo is second to none, but moreover my daughter had the time of her life! Bravo fosters the development of a very collegial and supportive network of training artists. My daughter has made friends for life who I know will support her through her journey towards becoming a professional performing artist ... Show More

    We could not have imagined the ride we are taking

    Bravo academy has been a fabulous experience for our daughters. Daniela started with Bravo when she was eight, and is she is now almost 14 year old. Over this time her talent for singing and acting has emerged in a way that could not have happened without Bravo. It has opened up a world for her that we, her parents, could not have imagined without Bravo. She has worked with young Canadian composers and participated in competitions throughout Ontario. The teachers at Bravo are exceptional. They are very skilled and knowledgeable and all have experience working in professional settings. Because of our wonderful experience with Daniela, Robyn our younger daughter age 10 has also started with Bravo and her experiences are similar to Daniela's. I would encourage any parent interested in musical and performing arts to give Bravo a serious look. We could not have imagined the ride we are taking when we first started with Bravo ... Show More

    The best music theatre school and program with new and exciting programs

    What Melissa has built here, Bravo Academy, is truly the best children (and adolescent) musical theatre school and program I could ever imagine. What she has also created here, besides magic and self esteem and community and love of theatre and dreams is a family where kids find other people like them and can grow and take risks, make mistakes, learn, develop all within the safest, most supportive, loving and stimulating environment. I love what Bravo does, the risks taken, the choices of daunting and unique (and Canadian!!) shows exposing the kids to new and creative work. Melissa and her amazing team model risk-taking and boundary-pushing. It is amazing that they are always adding new and exciting programs ... Show More

    Student looks forward to online private voice lessons

    “Our daughter really looks forward to her singing lessons with you, and seeing you twice a week now while we do the makeups, the singing lessons are serving as a calm anchor in this storm. She is quite ambivalent about the Zoom lessons coming from her school and finds them alienating and frustrating, but your class is actually the one Zoom lesson that seems to translate really well to the medium (and/or you just know how to use it effectively) and she is excited and engaged. Thanks so much for all the work you are doing with her.� ... Show More

    Through the past 15 years, Bravo Academy has become a leader in performing arts education, produced over 100 mainstage productions along with hundreds of cabarets, showcases and recitals and has recently moved into a custom built state-of-the-art facility. Bravo Academy has produced Canadian and world premieres and has recently launched our New Music Theatre Intensives with the mandate to develop new Canadian musicals and to train emerging artists. I truly cannot believe how quickly time has gone! I still remember my first private students, the first musical and it is amazing how things have grown.

    Over the past decade, it has been a privilege to work with such incredible, passionate and awe-inspiring people! Bravo Academy is what it is because every member of the “Bravo Family” has contributed to its achievements. There is something magical and deeply meaningful in assisting and watching students grow and develop as artists, musicians and people.

    We are especially grateful to all the teachers, administrators, designers, production team members, students, parents, sponsors, volunteers, family and friends that have contributed to making Bravo Academy what it is today.

    To our new students – whether you’re an aspiring Broadway star or piano prodigy, or simply looking to have fun with new friends – we welcome you to our “Bravo Family” and hope you’ll find the same inspiration and joy I have found here every day.

    See you on the stage,

    Melissa Bencic
