Preparing for a college dance program is an investment in time and energy. Ideally, it is an effort expended over a period of years and not months. There is so much more to gaining acceptance into a reputable college dance program than the completing the application and audition. The experiences you accumulate over time – the intensives, the workshops, the training, the internships – play a very significant and critical role in determining your competitiveness.
No matter where you find yourself in the process or in your educational journey, time spent planning with teachers, mentors and college dance experts is essential to set yourself up for success – to take some of the mystery out of the process. If you are unable to make it to one of our College Prep Workshops or enroll in an in-person consultation at one of the workshops, we offer an exclusive online consultation option with college dance experts from Francisco Gella Dance Works.
Your individual consultation is meant to address specific questions and needs that you have with regard to preparation for a college dance program and in the college planning process itself. Sessions are a minimum of an hour at a time. A lot can be accomplished in an hour, but certainly not everything. If you know you will need ongoing assistance, you have an option to purchase additional consultation hours.
Following are a list of potential topics that can be covered in a one-hour individual consultation. You will be able to select from these options (on the check-out page), the best the topic(s) that best fit your purpose in scheduling a consultation.
- Developing an effective college dance resume
- Preparing the college essay
- Financing a college education
- Making good choices in training and summer intensives – to prepare for college
