With nearly 30 years dance experience and many years as a professional with companies such as American Ballet Theatre and The Joffrey Ballet, Abigail knows what it takes to be a great dancer and how to help you take your skills and passion to the next level, regardless of whether you're an experienced dancer or a beginner looking to learn the basics.

Interested in learning from the best?  Abigail teaches in New York City and Chicago at a variety of studios. She also travels around the country teaching master classes and at summer intensive programs.


She not only works on ballet technique but Abigail also pays great attention to physical strength and conditioning. She has great energy and really inspires her students to be confident and to continue to nurture their love of dance.  I couldn’t recommend her more!"
