Gigi al- so had the opportunity to teach at the University of Nevada/ Reno, the University of Nevada/Las Vegas and Arizona State Uni- versity. She helped establish the Children’s Creative Dance Lab in Las Vegas, the Sierra Repertory Dance Theatre in Reno and RW studio classes for kids.   She performed with A Ludwig Co Dance Theatre in Phoenix and Contemporary DanceWORKS in Utah and in 1996 rejoined the Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company as Director of Education.
