Institute Application

Up to sixty students will be carefully selected to attend the 2019 Institute. To be considered, all required application items must be completed along with the non-refundable $95 application processing fee no later than March 15.

Decisions will be made by April 30.

All selected students will be required to make a 50% tuition deposit before May 15 in order to secure their admission. The balance of tuition will be due by June 15. Wait-listed students will be invited after May 15 as space allows. If you have any questions, please email preprodancerinstitute@franciscogelladance.com and we will respond as quickly as we can.

Please note, it is in your best interest to begin your application early since we cannot guarantee that we can respond in a timely manner in order for you to complete and submit your application by the deadline. Deadline extensions will not be awarded due to delayed email replies from Preprofessional Dance Institute.

Here are the things that you will need to properly complete this application:

  •  Headshot
  • 1-page personal statement
  • 1 – 3 minute video of a solo performance
  • Recommendation Contact Information

Please remember to save your progress as you complete the various stages of the application. Nothing is submitted until payment is completed, at which point nothing within the application can be changed.
