Background

Gina is a freelance dance practitioner who delivers sessions for pre-school children, allowing them the freedom to explore movement and music in a friendly environment. The sessions are designed to develop confidence and self esteem, while also developing skills in language, creativity and social interaction. Children also develop their balance, co-ordination and motor skills while making new friends.

Gina also devises and teaches sessions in primary and secondary schools, working with children of all ages and abilities. The sessions are created in line with the national curriculum and the school’s curriculum maps.

Gina has worked as a dance mentor and consultant for the PESS (PE in School Sports) initiative with Sports Wales. She has also worked alongside teachers to raise the standards of dance in primary and secondary education using the PESS pedagogy of teaching and learning. This involved delivering demonstration lessons, setting targets and outcomes, and giving teachers feedback on their lessons to help develop their knowledge of dance in the national curriculum.
