School and Studio Consulting
Dance schools and studios all over the country are understanding the vital importance of effective ballet-based training. As a result, they are renewing their commitment. Legitimate training in ballet technique improves the strength of dancers in all styles and genres by bringing greater precision in movement, a well- developed core, higher levels of athleticism and exemplary artistry. As a result, competitive and non-competitive studios and schools alike are taking steps to recommit to the basics of ballet technique.

Consulting Services utilizes their dance and education expertise in assessing programs then crafting recommendations that will meet the unique needs of your studio, tailored to your own mission and goals. Francisco has years of experience in understanding the competition studio environment and in developing a ballet technique training program with proven results.
Master teacher Francisco Gella’s ‘Dance Foundations’ program for studios is more than an intensive, it’s a training curriculum based on his extensive twenty-five year dance career, background as a gymnast and coach, and education in anatomy/physiology. With an integrated teaching approach, he incorporates spirituality, psychology, physiology, and kinesthetic awareness – all toward developing a holistic, versatile, self-aware, and self-confident dancer.
The custom-designed workshop is a five-day program designed to build upon the students’ regular dance training they are receiving at their home conservatory or studio. With Francisco and the rest of the outstanding faculty’s guidance and knowledge, students will quickly become even more aware of their own body. Regardless of the level of experience or ability of each dancer, they will aspire for even greater individual accomplishment.
