I have had the honor of participating in an extraordinary work by Francisco Gella. It was a marvelous experience. Francisco is an intuitive and watchful teacher and he uses these skills to create beauty from the dancers he is given to work with. It is quite an amazing process! He is thoughtful and uplifting to his students. He communicates in a positive way and it is easy to catch his enthusiasm for the art of ballet listening to him teach and choreograph because he is so obviously passionate about it. I love time spent with Francisco and look forward to it again.
