Health Requirements


I think the biggest strength in Brockville is the community support we have. I’ll be out at the grocery store and people will come up to me and say ‘you were in such-and-such show’ and you really don’t see that anywhere else. Our school is making individual performers and I really think we’re the only school doing that. You’re going to be yourself here, and you’re going to be the best performer you can be.
