Francisco Gella is my choreographer, my teacher, my mentor and most importantly my friend. Francisco instills in me passion and feelings that can only be expressed through dance. His choreography inspires me to be the best “me” I can possibly be and has helped me discover my soul. When he sets choreography, I know that it is not just something he has put together by chance or in a hurry. Every movement of his choreography has personal meaning and he expects me, as a dancer, to tell that story as he has intended it to be told. Because he has confidence in me I cannot ever let him down! I love Francisco because he knows my potential and he will push me as far as I can go, to get every ounce of talent I have to give. Trust me… I am willing to give all I have for him! Francisco takes the time to understand me personally as well, and even though he is a mentor to hundreds of young dancers such as me, he makes me feel special and unique! I love and appreciate Francisco so much and am beyond grateful for all of his help, love and support. Francisco is why I love to dance!
