Competitions

2015+

Honestly, Gina doesn’t care that much about competitions anymore. She still enters them and sometimes does really well, but these days she thinks dancing should mostly be about having fun rather than about winning. (Not that they’re mutually exclusive.) Suffice to say, it’s not important enough for her to keep posting which contests she has entered and won. There are more valuable things than trophies. 🙂
