PERFORMING ARTS STUDIO
TESTIMONIAL 11/2023 "Working with Karen is an absolute dream! Karen took time to listen to our needs, preferences and then went above and beyond in every way imaginable. She was able to maximize our use of space, create a design that still looks brand new even at 7 years old and with hundreds of students running around each day! She magically was able to find a way to balance our dreams and budget and create a space that we never imagined was possible. Our space is inviting and we get clients every day complimenting us on the facility, it is a joy to work in and we are grateful every day for her work.I cannot recommend Karen enough, she is a dream to work with!"
Melissa Bencic, Artistic Director/Owner Bravo Academy
Bravo Academy Performing Art's humble beginning started in a church basement and grew in popularity due to the incredible dedication and passion of Artistic Director/Owner Melissa Bencic. Growth of Bravo expanded in the late 2000"s to a portable and when the lease expired the decision was made to create a new facility on Samor road in North Toronto. In 2016, starting with a raw space, bhive design developed a concept and plans for the studio which includes a reception and waiting area for the boisterous up and coming performers, a small central office with accommodations for two, a large walk in closet for backpacks & coats, 6 small studios for private voice and instrument lessons, 2 larger performance studio's, 2 bathrooms, and staff lounge all barrier free compliant. The new facilities opened early 2017 and they continue to prosper! On a personal note, I am very proud to be a part of this project having had my children benefit from the talents of the incredible staff for over 10 years...what a wonderful, creative place!
