Instructor • Advanced Tap Specialist
Abbey began dancing at the Academy of Dance Arts when she was five years old— and she hasn’t stopped! In her thirteen years studying under Academy faculty, she danced ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, lyrical, and contemporary styles. She also had the opportunity to perform with Trey McIntyre Project, the Black Hills Dance Theater, and most recently Daniel O’Donnell. Abbey continued to study dance at the University of South Dakota, where she graduated in 2019 with a degree in Elementary Education. She has spent the past two years teaching dance to students in Vermillion, and now she is thrilled to return to the studio that has always felt like home!
