October Spotlight: Gina

October Dancer Spotlight

Every month we will be spotlighting a dancer in Westchester county.  This month, our spotlight turns to La Gina!

Gina Bergamini was most recently seen at the New York Renaissance Faire with the dance company, Gimme Shimmy. Previously, she danced as a company member of the NYC based troupes the Dalia Carella Dance Collective, Altagracia’s Caribbean Rose Dancers, and of Westchester’s own Bellyissima.

Lately, Gina has focused her energies in Westchester. She performed for a few seasons as a dancer in New Rochelle Opera Company, with choreography by Aszmara Sherry. Gina has also gone back to her musical theater roots and appeared as the Nightingale in Bedford Community Theater’s Once Upon a Mattress.

Gina trained extensively in Oriental dance, under the tutelage of Dalia Carella, Altagracia Bruno, and the late Serena Wilson of Serena Studios. Gina has also trained in ballet, modern, jazz, voice, and musical theater. She holds a Master of Arts in Teaching and a Bachelor degree in Music. When she is not performing or teaching dance, she is found conducting early childhood music and dance classes and maintaining a preschool classroom. Since she believes that striving for excellence as a performer and a teacher means lifelong learning, Gina continues to takes lessons and workshops in music, dance, and education.

For information about adult belly dance classes or children’s music and dance classes, contact Gina at Ginabdanza@aol.com.
