Teacher Observation Pass


Too often we become so busy with the day-to-day, week-to-week responsibilities of working with our students in classes and rehearsals, that we neglect tending to our own professional development needs – the curiosity that we encourage in our students is missing in our own practice. Take this opportunity to learn from highly respected teachers and choreographers at this year’s New Century Dance Project. Teachers and choreographers for preprofessional dancers are invited to observe classes and workshops taking place  on Monday, August 10 thru Saturday, August 15. Included is a lunch with other teachers and festival artistic director Francisco Gella, and you’ll also receive one ticket to the Saturday evening Festival Gala Concert.


Earlybird Tuition: $185 thru March 31, 2020

The Francisco Gella Dance Works (FGDW) Equity Scholarship Program


The Francisco Gella Dance Works (FGDW) Equity Scholarship Program is based on the belief that when given an opportunity to learn and do what they love, every student with motivation can succeed. Therefore every student deserves at least one chance to try. But we are fully aware that not every student has the financial means or support to participate in training and educational dance programs that will give them access to the information they need in pursuit of their goals.


To level the playing field of opportunity and identify talent, FGDW offers financial support through full and partial tuition scholarships to eligible applicants for all of its intensives and workshops.
