Gina Palmieri and her two daughters have been part of the Rising Stars family since the fall of 2003 when her oldest daughter began to dance at the age of two. Exactly two years later, at the age of two, her second daughter began to dance. As her daughters continued to excel, they were both accepted into FPAC (Freehold Performing Arts Center, the performing arts program at Howell High School). Her oldest daughter has graduated FPAC and is now on her college dance team. Her youngest is in high school and completing her dance training at FPAC.
