Hailing originally from Caracas, Venezuela, Ginet was born with dance in her blood and at a young age, Ginet and her family moved from Venezuela and landed in Ohio. Growing up, there was always music in the home, but Ginet didn't get into dance until after college. After graduating from the University of Akron with a bachelor's degree of science in organizational supervision, Ginet spent some time traveling, doing mission trips in Haiti, and eventually settled back in the Cleveland / Akron area where she rediscovered ballroom dance and decided to make a career out of a life long passion.
She briefly danced in an amateur partnership where she and her partner succeeded in taking home several placements but then Ginet decided she wanted more! She then enrolled in Cleveland's Ballroom Dance Teacher College (owned and run by our very own Angel Criado,) where she began studying to become the best possible teacher she could become while expanding her dance knowledge. While studying, Ginet competed in International Latin with Angel Criado placing in every dance and bringing back some titles.
Ginet fell more and more in love with ballroom dance and is now an instructor with Rhythm & Grace where she currently enjoys sharing her love for dance and helping people experience all the amazing benefits she has experienced herself! Ginet also does some of our off the floor work, putting that bachelor's degree to use by keeping our office in order, helping with the children' studio, and helping Cree to organize and run the studio events. Ginet continues to expand her dance knowledge through Cleveland's Ballroom Dance Teacher College, and takes coaching from some of the best in the industry including Ray Rivers, and Angel & Cree Criado.
Ginet and Cree actually went to high school together and are childhood friends! Ginet was even the MOH in Angel & Cree's wedding!
