Gina Michael's Style 

Gina's style varies depending on the music selected and the emotion or attitude to be conveyed. Gina's movement may be strong and sharp one moment, and lyrical in the next. Gina is a master at contrasting different movement qualities to create a dynamic routine. She emphasizes the importance of the "performance" rather than merely repeating the steps learnt.
