I was fortunate to learn my bravo/brava/bravi from my daughters' violin teacher. When one of them would finish a piece she would clap and exclaim, "Brava! Brava!" One day when I got roped into playing a piano accompaniment, she changed to "Bravi! Bravi tutti!" (Knowing what I now know, I suppose it should have been "Brave! Brave tutte!")

Nope, I don't sit near him -- but I do have a very clear view of him. He has his own box seat, I'm up in the balcony.

The worst thing in the world, to me, would be to have someone feel stifled by cultural norms. ;)
As for what form of appreciation is typically American, I'm sure there will be others who will respond later... I, too, have be known to whistle at performances...but only those in which my offspring is dancing.
I also do stand up and clap very loudly with a big smile on my face if I really love something - I wonder if the "standing ovation" is considered universal?
