Gigi Pizzichillo


Gigi

Gigi began dancing at the age of 2 where she trained at Kovacs Studio of Dance near her hometown on Long Island. She competed nationally for many years in several styles of dance as well as performed in countless large venues. Immediately following H.S., she became a part of the University of Delaware’s D1 Dance Team, where she decided she truly wanted to make the most of her dance career, returned to N.Y. to audition and continue her education at Farmingdale State College where she pursues a degree in Health Promotion & Wellness. She continues her training by attending classes at Broadway Dance Center, Peridance and various conventions. She has performed the works of many accomplished choreographers including Luam, Kira Harper, Miles Keeney, Jessica Castro, Chuck Smith, Neil Schwartz, Nick Kenkel, Jonte, Shirlene Quigley and Soraya Lundy. Gigi continues to defy gravity with her tumbling skills and teaches Master Acro classes locally. In 2018, after working feverishly to prepare for the audition process for Brooklyn’s NBA Dance Team, she received her first big break and was selected to join the team. As she continues to dance for the Brooklynettes, in her second season, she remains grateful for the countless opportunities it has offered her. Booking this job has afforded her the opportunity to work with people that inspire her such as Asha Singh, the Brooklynettes Head Coach, who Gigi describes to be a captivating woman that motivates her to be the best and smartest dancer she can be. From an artistic perspective, Ysabelle Capitule is another dancer that Gigi recognizes for her ability to be a petite power-house. Gigi says, Ysablle is super aware of her body, extremely versatile and knows how to highlight her assets while executing any style.

Gigi loves to learn new things especially those things that challenge her physically. Spending time on the water, boating, surfing, doing yoga, boxing or practicing new tricks are among the things she likes to do when not performing. Gigi’s favorite saying is 'If you are not willing to risk the usual you will have to settle for the ordinary.' – Jim Rohn, because what is a reward without a risk.
