Gina Pero has challenged me to set free my soul’s desire and to speak the truth. This has not been an easy road, but with Gina’s guidance, I have been on an amazing journey discovering feelings that have been locked away and finding that experiences I had given up on were all right in front of me the whole time. All I had to say was “Yes!” It seems so simple and yet I got caught up in the “hows” and “shoulds” and “maybes.” Now I have learned to say “YES!” There is still much to discover and my journey continues. I am grateful and blessed to have Gina in my life.

I worked with Gina Pero as my life coach for over a year. In the time we worked together I grew immensely as a person and as a dancer. Before meeting Gina, I struggled to find confidence in myself in my daily life as well as in dancing. I was quite timid and unsure of myself before I began coaching with Gina. I knew I wanted to gain confidence and start to break out of my shell, but I didn’t know how to get there on my own. Gina helped me to grow and gave me tools to find the confidence I needed. She encouraged me as well as challenged me. It was very difficult for me to open up at first but now looking back I know it was worth it. Along my journey with Gina I accomplished many things that I don’t think I would have without her guidance. Gina is a very driven, inspiring, and knowledgeable person. I am very grateful for my experience with Gina.

Gina Pero is a talented master dance teacher. Her passion for the Simonson method and integration of coaching techniques explains and inspires greatness in movement and performance. Gina’s gift is working with teachers, particularly on developing a cogent progression of skills for any dance class and focusing on the verbal language cues that create immediate shifts in alignment, elongation, and spiral. Beyond knowing what to do, Gina helps teachers express their knowledge with verbal precision and clarity. Her understanding of brain science and precise anatomical training is valuable knowledge that makes her approach accessible and relevant to teachers of any dance genre.

See what parents are saying
Gina had been a personal friend of mine for over eight years when I called her for one of our long chats. She told me that her work as a life coach was taking her to work with teenagers and young people. At the time, our teenage son was going through the normal ups and downs of teenage self confidence. It was not a red light concern for my husband and me but we could see he could benefit to feel better about himself. Gina expressed that her methods were focused on honest conversation and having the client contribute equally to the discussion and not ‘therapy’ sessions. This resonated with my husband and I. We had no idea just how much of a positive impact Gina would have on his self confidence and personal development. Our son immediately appreciated his sessions with Gina and still uses the tools she taught him daily. In addition to meeting him at our home, she came to watch his basketball games. Our son mentioned to us on many occasions that his evolution was due to Gina. Her calm, fun, respectful and loving way to work with a 15 year old teenage boy made a remarkable difference. We are deeply grateful.”
Gina is inspiring and motivating for people of all ages! Through her coaching and understanding of what side of the brain each person is dominant in she is able to create tools and techniques to enhance any skill you may have. My 12 year old daughter is a visionary learner and Gina has instilled great imagery techniques and tools to enhance not only her dance skills but also test taking skills for school and much more!
I would like to express my gratitude to my daughter’s life coach, Gina Pero. My daughter has been dancing since 3 years old. She began competitive dance about age 10 and was really thriving, so I thought. As I watched others around her progressing, something was missing. We met Gina Pero through a seminar at her dance studio. I immediately knew that was the missing piece. Gino and Kaylee began a journey that would span well over a year. Through that time Kaylee saw tremendous growth both in dance and in her own spirit. The confidence she gained is priceless. Gina knew when to push and when to allow Kaylee the freedom to see her own way through a difficult time. We are blessed to have been put in the path of such a loving spirit as Gina. Kaylee is forever changed for the time they had together. If you are looking for that missing piece, let Gina Pero fill that spot in your life.
Coaching helped my daughter increase her confidence, her positive outlook, her desire for consistent growth, and her willingness to meet all of her goals.
