Founder & Director
Gina was always a dancer at heart. Ever since she remembers, music and movement have been a major influencer in her life. This passion is what led her to become a ballroom & latin professional for over 20 years. Her achievements include winning the US Open Youth Latin Championship in 2001 and more recently being crowned Australian Salsa Champion in 2010.
Since retiring from competition her love for teaching remained, but her focus shifted to the importance of helping people keep fit and how she could utilise dance to achieve this. Dance fitness programs were a perfect way to use her skills as a dancer and deliver her message to many people.
Gina became one of the first Zumba instructors in Australia and has since cultivated a loyal following. Moreover, through interaction with teaching many older active adults, Gina saw their desire for keeping physically active and she believed that dance, and more broadly, low impact dance fitness, would be a great way to facilitate this.
Gina has since been actively involved in creating and delivering low impact workouts. Amongst this, her unique seated movement program called SMILE & Sway has had overwhelmingly positive feedback especially from aged care facilities, nursing homes and community centres. And her low impact walking workout, DANCE That WALK, is having worldwide success, being ranked as the #1 new release exercise & fitness DVD on Amazon.com in the USA.
