 Gina Urso-Dudash is the mother of Candy Apple's dancer Mari Dudash.

Gina founded Dance Grosse Ile studio in Michigan, and serves as its artistic director.[2][3][4] Gina has also served as director of Energy National Dance Competition[5]; either she, or another person named Gina, is also reportedly its owner.[6]



  • In an article at Dance Studio Life, Gina Urso-Dudash answers various questions as director of Energy National Dance Competitions, including when she considers dancers from television to be professionals.
  • After the filming of Waiting for Joffrey in 2012, a Facebook statement from Gina Urso for Energy dance promised detractors and boycotters of the show that "you have our word that we will not be allowing LifeTime TV and its program Dance Mom’s to attend future Energy events".[7][8][9][10][11]
