WHO AM I?
My name is Gigi Torres and I am a Choreographer, Dance Educator, Creative Director, & Women’s Empowerment Activist! I’ve been a working artist in the Arts & Entertainment Industry for 15 years and have worked on shows like So You Think You Can Dance in Ukraine, Poland, & Scandinavia, Artists like Kpop group Girl’s Generation from Korea, and institutions like Joffrey Ballet, Movement Lifestyle, Debbie Reynolds Studio, & Hollywood Connection Dance Convention and I’ve taught in 30 countries spreading my knowledge and passion for dance.
WHAT'S MY STORY?
2 years ago I entered a Choreography Competition and was a finalist as the top 15 of 300 submissions. I raised 10k to bring my dancers and I to NY from LA to compete. The prize was to receive full funding for a self-produced show. I created a piece called Empower to celebrate the strengths and power of women. Unfortunately, I did not place but I took it as true energy to keep my momentum going. I’ve done many empowerment projects like producing a series of 9 Women Empowerment videos, launching premiere parties in LA, Chicago, & NY, & creating opening acts for empowerment events like the Yellow Conference. My mission for Women’s Empowerment has never been stronger and I’m at the point in my journey where I won’t let outside forces stop me from achieving my dream of producing a full-length show.
WHAT AM I RAISING $ FOR?
I’m excited to share that I received an opportunity to showcase my work in a full-length show from Lindsley Allen who curates Dance Wednesdays at Tim Robbins' Actor's Gang Theatre in Culver City on March 21st. In celebration of Women's History Month, I want to explore the stories of women and their journeys in my show called "Stories from Her." Enhance your senses of sight, sound, and emotion as we honor women and girls to live out their purpose and encourage them to write their story. My cast of 40 dancers & I open our arms and are ready to fill your heart with love.
