Abbi is a recent graduate with her Bachelor of Arts in Dance Performance from Grand Canyon University, where she served as the President of the Student Dance Education Organization. She has been dancing since age three, training extensively in several styles. In early high school, Abbi caught the theatre bug and began taking voice and acting lessons with well-known instructors. For a summer, she studied at the Gus Giordano Dance School where she trained under master teachers, including Jimmy Locust, Christopher Perricelli, Pattie Obey, and Matt Phosephil.
Since her move to Arizona, Abbi has had several performance opportunities. Recently, she performed in West Side Story at the Phoenix Theatre Company, working under award-winning Broadway choreographer, Patti Colombo. Other recent credits include: Singin’ in the Rain (‘Kathy Selden’ Hale Centre Theatre), Newsies (‘Mush’, HCT), Anything Goes (‘Reno’, GCU), and a Guest Artist Residency with Broadway Lion King’s Ray Mercer.
In addition to her time on stage, she has also spent some time behind the scenes. For several years, Abbi has been teaching and choreographing at various dance studios and theatres. She has choreographed several pieces for musical productions, including Mary Poppins, Peter Pan, White Christmas, and Into the Woods.
