Over the years, the program has expanded into six Troupes, has worked with over a thousand students and has produced more than 200 productions.Bravo Academy is an inclusive arts space where our students can grow and flourish. All rehearsals take place in our fully accessible custom-built facility and final performances are held at the Meridian Arts Centre. Bravo Academy is a proud partner of the Arts Access Fund providing opportunities and support for those who otherwise would not be able to participate in our program. Students who need financial assistance in the form of a bursary or scholarship are encouraged to apply after acceptance to the program.
BENEFITS OF MUSICAL THEATRE EDUCATION

Bravo Academy produces more musicals than any other performing arts school in the Greater Toronto Area – which means it doesn’t just stop at Troupe! Many of our students extend their studies with private music lessons; participate in March Break and Summer camps; and audition for our New Musical Theatre Intensives focused on new and contemporary musicals.
We are also thrilled to produce over 25 unique productions every year, including private lesson recitals, musical theatre class shows, fundraiser concerts, cabarets, and of course our Annual Gala! We always have something coming up!
Additionally, we offer masterclass workshops specifically for our advanced musical theatre students, in subjects such as vocal performance, vocal health, dialect work, audition skills, and writing for musical theatre.
If you are interested in meeting with an agent for your child for professional film, television, and stage work, we can help connect you with the right match. We can also advise on post-secondary preparation, choosing the right school, and audition preparation.
