GinnieDancers aren’t made of their technique, but their passion.
Ginnie had both the technique and the passion and that made her outstanding!

Ginnie was a very special girl. She came into Kath’s life when she was 7 weeks old and although they did not always agree on how their relationship should be, Heelwork to Music changed Ginnie’s outlook on life to one of a true partnership with Kath.

Starting HTM together when Ginnie was 7 years old, they became one of the UK’s most successful teams. Her dancing was breathtaking, but that is not what we miss the most. We miss her personality, her keenness and her desire for work and fun, her smile and her wagging tail.

In just seven years, Ginnie performed 24 different routines and competed 54 times.
Placed 1st 32 times.
Placed 2nd 14 times.
Placed 3rd 5 times.
