- Press Release 79/2020

IDO Vice President and Sports Director, Fiona Johnson has today announced the second of the VIP judges for the 6th edition of the IDO World Gala Event ‘Best of the Best’.

Professional dancer, teacher and choreographer from the United States of America Gianna Martello has been invited as a VIP Judge. Her raw talent and intensive training under the direction of Abby Lee Miller and the faculty at the Abby Lee Dance Company earned her regional and national accolades growing up as a “competition kid." At 16, Gianna began choreographing routines alongside Ms. Miller as well as on her own which led her to discover her passion for teaching and choreography. She has been on faculty at the ALDC for over 15 years and serves as a guest instructor and competition judge around the world.

Gianna was able to balance her academic and dance opportunities with great success. She graduated from Point Park University in 2011 with a B.A. in Advertising and Public Relations. Her choreography can be seen in the movie, “Dance-Off,” Go90’s ‘Crashed’ series, Kid’s Choice Awards and Dance Class Live promos, Australia’s “ASTRA Awards” Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition, and music videos for Rachael Sage, Alexx Calise, Nia Sioux, Todrick Hall, and many more. You may know her from the fan favorite, Dance Moms! You can catch her choreography being set on dancers such as Maddie Ziegler & JoJo Siwa on all 8 seasons of the hit reality T.V. show!

Gianna’s true passion lies in teaching and making you feel confident when you step out on stage, or into the real world. She believes that you can learn so more from a dance teacher than just the steps. Her teacher instilled lifelong lessons throughout her entire childhood and Gianna wishes to do the same.
