Meet A Dance Enthusiast

Gina Gibney, CEO and Artistic Director of Gibney Dance, knew she was a Dance Enthusiast "at the age of four when I look my first dance lesson at the Ethyl Battin Dance Academy in Mansfield, Ohio."

Today, this powerhouse artist is a community builder and problem solver. In addition to running two dance spaces at 890 and 280 Broadway and leading Gibney Dance, a performance company, she created the groundbreaking Community Action program, building relationships between dance artists and social service groups to give greater visibility to the issue of domestic violence.

"This is what I want to do," asserts Gibney after finishing a day in the studio collaborating with her dancers.
