BRAVO! is a unique opportunity to enhance all your performance skills to better communicate your thoughts, hopes, and dreams to an audience. The performance of vocal music, dance, and acting – taught in daily sessions led by caring professionals – is enhanced by one-on-one coaching in your chosen area(s) of performance leading to a final public debut. The ultimate goal is not just to “teach you the basics,” but to have you employ all you’ve learned in a complete, clear communication of thought and feeling.
