Gina Underwood began dancing in Elkhorn, Nebraska at the age of 5 where she trained in ballet, tap, jazz, clogging and acro/tumbling. There she started dancing with a professional traveling company at the age of 10 until her family relocated to Pocatello, Idaho. Gina continued dancing and training with Marius Zirra and attending national conventions. She began teaching for Emily Yost when she was just 13 years old. Gina started her own studio, The Dance Factory, at 18 years old and has over 25 years of teaching experience with all ages and levels of dancers! She specializes in jazz, hip hop, clogging, tap, acro/tumbling, and contemporary and has choreographed numerous routines that have won at many well-known dance conventions and received top scores and awards at several competitions. Gina has dedicated her life to building and growing The Dance Factory while achieving her life-time goal creating Idaho's most well rounded dancers! TDF offers classes for every age and level and works to ensure every student gets the training and attention they need! 



Our goal at The Dance Factory is to provide a positive environment where our dancers receive the education and opportunity to become, not only well rounded dancers, but creative artists. We feel that it is important to learn the technical aspects of all dance forms while allowing our students to be creative in their own unique ways. At TDF we know every person comes with their strengths and weaknesses. We do our best to help inspire our dancers to continue to nurture their individual strengths as well as overcome their individual weaknesses through hard work and commitment.
