BRAVO! Youth Ensemble
Comprised of youth from diverse cultural backgrounds, BRAVO! Youth Ensemble is the new choral music extension of the African American Children’s Theatre. It offers young people the opportunity to work collaboratively with adult master arts specialists to develop leadership skills and make a significant and positive impact on society through their performances.
The ensemble performs a diverse repertoire of songs about unity, friendship, inclusion, encouragement, determination and personal potential. The selections embrace many world cultures with a special emphasis on music relating to African American history and culture, and on works by African American composers and arrangers.
BRAVO! Youth Ensemble is a collaboration with Arts@Large and Milwaukee High School of the Arts. This session's Youth Ensemble classes are scheduled to continue on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through the end of January, 2017.

After School Classes
After-school theatre arts classes at the Milwaukee Youth Arts Center provide youth a unique opportunity to learn life skills in a fun, interactive setting. At the moment, classes are only offered through MHSA. Please visit again early in 2017 to find out about programming for community kids and other age groups.
Our after school program teaches students important communication skills. Through acting, music and theatre games, children learn to imagine, solve problems together, and adapt to change. AACT's program encourages students to use their creative powers to better understand how people think, feel and live.
AACT teaching artists have also recently worked with classrooms from OW Holmes, Lloyd Barbee Montessori and Elm Creative Arts School.
