Situated geographically between the two largest centers of dance in the United States (New York City and Los Angeles) and in a state with a long-standing reputation for excellence in both commercial and concert dance, the New Century Dance Project is preparing to become the foremost global event of its kind.  By breaking down the barriers between diverse styles and genres of dance, the inaugural festival is bringing together some of the very best young dancers to perform with and be mentored by professional dancers.

  • Take master classes with exceptional faculty
  • Participate in career Prep & College Dance Workshops
  • Be mentored by professional teaching artists and educators
  • Learn original choreography
  • Perform in the final concert
  • Collaborate with other dancers in a non-competitive learning environment

Frequently called a ‘breath of fresh air’ by students, parents, teachers and directors alike, every one of Francisco Gella’s programs delivers on a central commitment: To transform hardworking young adults into remarkable young artists regardless of body type or background, and instilling a belief in them that anything is possible with hard work, a sense of purpose, and a willingness to take risks.
