Youth Intensive Programs

This energy driven program is designed for young performers looking to develop and challenge their skills.

New Music Theatre Youth Intensive is a UNIQUE and specialized program unlike any other! This energy driven program is designed for young performers looking to develop and CHALLENGE their skills.

In our Youth Intensives program, a small select group of young artists (approximately 10-14) work with a team of Toronto’s top industry professionals.

The young artists develop and challenge their music theatre skills in singing, acting and dance. The program culminates with performances in an inventive contemporary music theatre production.

Occasionally, students can participate in masterclasses and specialized workshops with guests artists.

MUSIC THEATRE LIKE YOU NEVER EXPERIENCED BEFORE!

Last year, Bravo Academy’s Youth Intensive artists had the incredible opportunity of performing in the WORLD PREMIERE of the Canadian Musical Bremen Rock City written by Colleen Dauncey and Akiva Romer-Segal.  Artists worked directly with the writers, while being led by Stage Director Keith Pike, Music Director Colleen Dauncey and Choreographer Lexy Cox.
