Gina is also a very good friend and colleague. I've known her for about a quarter century -- have taught, choreographed, and performed a little for and with her students. She now teaches for studios in the Victoria area, after succesfully directing her own for many years.
As FT reports, she is the person who rehearses local ballet students and children for inclusion in ballets by touring companies, including "Nutcracker" and others.
She is very thorough.
Of course, what's gotten lost in all of this is: And how was the performance?
