For over 25 years BRAVO, the award-winning, nationally recognized Performing Arts program at Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School, has been committed to ensuring that all Brooks students can experience the transformative power of performing arts.

BRAVO is Brooks’ largest extracurricular program, touching over 30% of the student body. Our program uses the performing arts to inspire imagination, foster empathy, promote inclusivity, empower courage, build community, and embrace diversity.

The emphasis of BRAVO is on educating every child to be academically and artistically successful in partnership with home and community. BRAVO includes  several initiatives and objectives centered upon the art of music, dance, drama, visual, technical, applied and the performing arts to inspire and teach students through motivation, time management, organization, esteem and parent and community involvement.

The BRAVO staff and Advisory Board are committed to offering and maintaining diverse, educational, unique, quality, and equitable programming.
