Dance has been a passion for Abbie for as long as she can remember, which started at age 3.  She spent 12 years dancing at the Reif Center in Grand Rapids, MN. During her tine at the Reif Center she was a member of their company & Pre-Professional program.

Some of her highlights as a dancer were being selected to the Reif’s Pre-Professional program, performing as the Dew Drop Fairy in the Nutcracker, and working with the James Sewell Ballet as a member of the Reif Dance Company.

Abbie has a love of jazz, ballet, pointe, modern, and tap – she says it is impossible to choose just one as her favorite style of dance!

Abbie thinks that performing on stage is extremely rewarding, not to mention so much fun, but sharing her love of dance with others through teaching has been just as rewarding. Her goal is to continue spreading the joy of dance throughout the community!
