Introduction: I have a wide range of dance and movement experience. With that comes the ability to teach on multiple levels for a variety of dance goals! Currently, I work with social dancers, competitors, and wedding preparation. I am also a professional competitor. As a dancer, myself, I study and train as much as I teach which gives me the unique opportunity to relate to my students on their level and better communicate about what they are going through.

Ginny was fun to be with while being an effective dance instructor. Her choreography was original and designed to fit my dance strengths. She spent enough time to thoroughly explain and demonstrate the dances and patterns while making it a fun experience.

Ginny's extensive dance background, which includes professional competitive dancing, makes her a great teacher. She is very patient and thorough in her explanations. She has helped me improve my technique and styling with rhythm and smooth dances.

Ginny is an awesome teacher! She is very patient and can really explain what you need to do. She is an incredible dancer and an incredible athlete so she really understands the human anatomy. I highly recommend taking lessons with her! You will learn a lot!

    I have been dancing my whole life. Despite having gone to school for dance as well as having some certifications, Life experience... actually doing the dancing, has been my best training.
