Reviews & Testimonials


Amazing part of my life
Blake Crawford — Camp alumni

Bravo has been an amazing part of my life. I started troupe in grade 9, and now that I'm going into my last year of college, I work here as a graphic designer! If you or your children are at all interested in Music Theatre or performance if any kind, I highly recommend you give Bravo a try!


No where else in the city can you find training of this caliber
Ben Page — Camp alumni

No where else in the city can you find training of this caliber


Student looks forward to online private voice lessons
anonymous — Parent

“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.”


The best music theatre school and program with new and exciting programs
Julie Zikman Toporoski — Parent

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.


The best experience for our son ever!
Brenda Blake — Parent

We can't say enough great things about Bravo Academy. Our son has been doing music theatre troupes and private vocal training at Bravo for the past 5 years and the quality of education has been second to none. And now that Bravo has moved to its new location the facilities are better than ever. Do not hesitate to check out this school if your child is interested in music training or musical theatre.The best experience for our son ever!


There simply isn't any youth oriented musical theatre program in the country that can match Bravo!
Paul Goldenberg — Parent

beyond compare and its done in a nurturing and compassionate manner to support the artistic and emotional growth of the young performer. They have amazing facilities and comprehensive programs but it is their staff and the quality of the instruction that really stands out. There simply isn't any youth oriented musical theatre program in the country that can match Bravo!


We could not have imagined the ride we are taking
Robert Bauer — Parent

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.


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

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!


The teachers create a professional yet fun atmosphere
Liana Lowenstein — Parent

Bravo Academy for the Performing Arts is a wonderful program for kids who have a love for musical theatre. Our daughter has been in the Youth Troupe for 3 years, and she also takes private vocal and piano lessons. The teachers create a professional yet fun atmosphere. I highly recommend it!


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
Christopher Olive — Parent

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.


This is.....AMAZING!!!!
Student — Camper

"This is.....AMAZING!!!! I have gone to so many theatre schools but Bravo Academy is the best EVER!!! If you have a kid or are a kid who loves Musical theatre, Dance, Singing, wants to play the piano, Gutair, or sing or all of them you need to come here!!!"


Amazing and unlike any other training centre
Kristen Zorzi — Camper

Bravo Academy has played a huge part in my development as a performing artist. My experience here, learning from the knowledgable faculty has truly been amazing and unlike any other training centre I've been too.



Director's Message

Melissa Bencic, Founder & Artistic Director

Through the past 10 years, Bravo Academy has become a leader in performing arts education, produced over 80 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
