I’m Gina Pero.

Do you remember a time in your life when you felt fully aligned, and in tune with your body?

You probably didn’t think much about it. You just smiled, moved your body the way it felt, and had fun boogying down to the beat of your own drum.

But then… something happened, didn’t it?

Someone may have told you: “You’re not doing it right, it should look the way she  doing it.”

And, slowly but surely, someone or some thing began to imprint it's own ideas (or even centuries-old ideas) around how you should look, feel, move your body, see the world, and craft your art — and as a result, you began to live by someone else’s way or I like to call it someone else's choreography.

Since 2011, I’ve been weaving my lifelong experience of expression as a professional dancer and teacher with my skills as an ICF  Professional Certified Life Coach to guide  high performers just like you as they move from other people’s plans, ideals, and “choreography” keeping them stuck — and embrace the most powerful, creative, unapologetic versions of themselves and their bodies wisdom.

But wait—what does "embracing you" even mean?

At the age of 12, I was diagnosed with scoliosis, and dancing became my medicine.

The studio and stage were the only places I could be free from my back brace, and it forever tied my art together with liberation and flow in my soul. Through all of the body image issues, back pain, discomfort, and deep down anger, the one thing I kept choosing was dance and prayer.

After years of prayer, movement, and holistic modalities I found and applied on my own, I was able to slowly heal my spine… and my love for the art form called dance became a pathway for me to live in purpose.

         I BEGAN TO EMBRACE MY BRACE.

 

And this is where my story really begins: with a kick line, a prayer, and a knockout.

I was waiting for my cue to step on stage as a gift bearer in the Nativity scene of the Rockettes Christmas Spectacular.

I always took those moments to talk to God. This time, I had a request:

“God, I know I have a bigger purpose. I am grateful but…”

I took a deep breath.

“Right now I am not happy. Something is missing. Guide me, show me, allow me to see and hear your plan.”

The next day, I got my answer—but it wasn’t the one I expected.

God literally knocked me out. I was accidentally hit backstage and I sustained a serious brain and spinal injury.

It felt like being sent all the way back to square 1, in my back brace—and this time, it was much worse. Imagine what it would feel like if you were suddenly unable to even write a sentence, or send a text?

However, it was a challenge cradled in a blessing.

My injury gave me ample time to reflect, recover, and I finally discovered the reason for my unhappiness:

I had been living — and dancing — by someone else’s choreography.

Whether I was at an audition or just trying to keep up with my to-do list, I was obeying someone else’s ideas for my life, and my art, and my creative gifts.

It wasn’t just making me feel empty. It was making me feel completely disconnected from myself and my spirit.

My recovery forced me to slow down (and eventually part ways with The Rockettes), and learn about my body, my nervous system, brain, and, perhaps most importantly, what I really wanted from this one precious life I have…..it helped me dance to happiness..from the inside out.

Being forced to put my dance shoes away gave me the freedom to stop going through the motions, and get intentional about designing the life I wanted to live—a life nourished by creativity, presence, adventure, love, and most importantly God.

Whether I was at an audition or just trying to keep up with my to-do list, I was obeying someone else’s ideas for my life, and my art, and my creative gifts.

It gave me the “ knock” I needed to confidently step out of the confines of other people’s choreography, and start embracing my own dance of co-creation with spirit, to pursue the bliss I craved.
I wasn’t sure what I’d do next, but I knew one thing for certain: I wanted to share what I’d discovered with more people.

The only question was: how?

About a year later I was guided to step into a free coaching workshop, and everything started to click.

I watched the coach offering the workshop change a woman’s life in 10 seconds flat. He took her from a place of feeling swallowed up by others’ expectations, and walked her to a place of freedom that may have taken her years to achieve on her own, and I realized:

OMG! This is it.

Within months, I started coaching training, and hit the road to learn more about what a life living and co-creating for myself really looked and felt like.

I dove into self-transformation, and even moved to Italy for a while to teach dance and connect to who I really was and learn about actually living life.

That’s when I began to study the business of coaching and teaching workshops, and clients began knocking on my door — almost all of them creatives and artists like me who wanted to work on their consciousness, body love, and creating the art and lives they wanted most.

In 2013 I launched
Gina Pero, LLC… and
the rest is history.

Nowadays, I’m a Master Certified Coach who teaches high-achieving creatives, empaths, and pure hearts of all ages what happens when they set themselves free from the choreography keeping them trapped - like the shoulds, the fears and doubts, the expectations other people have for their time and their art.

I co-create my reality every single day with something greater than myself. Along with spirit, I have manifested incredible things - a relationship of my dreams, a career that fuels me, a body that carries me with strength and, more than anything, self discovery about what I’m capable of.

So, if you’re ready to discover…

Who are you really?

What do you need to feel happy and fulfilled at the deepest level?

What is your soul calling you to create?

Who can you be when you know you, your art, and your creativity is more than good enough?

What would it feel like to be fully embraced?

It would be my honor to guide you.

Learn more about how we can co-create together through 1-1 or group coaching. and let’s get YOU in touch with the most gorgeous choreography of your life.
