What a pleasure it is to invite Francisco Gella into the doors of Bunker Dance Center each year for master classes, privates, and choreography creation. The studio seems to buzz in anticipation and as I’ve reflected on the excitement surrounding Francisco’s visits I realize it is due to his dedication to each and every student in his presence. Francisco makes all students in each of his classes feel they can achieve their dance goals. He motivates them with passion in his voice and energy in his body, demonstrating each step. His eye is keen quickly registering students’ weaknesses and strengths. It is Francisco’s knowledge combined with his compassion and devotion to his craft that make him a true master teacher and choreographer. Each student who has the good fortune to take a class from Francisco or dance a work created by him walks away with increased self confidence, a better appreciation of classical music and the art of dance, and a deeper commitment to continue training at the highest levels. Francisco Gella is much loved by students and teachers alike at Bunker Dance Center!
