Abigail Zimmerman grew up in the small town of Grays River, WA. She holds a BFA in Dance and Pilates Mat certification from Cornish College of the Arts. Abby grew up dancing at Maddox Dance Studio in Warrenton, OR, where she spent many years performing in The Nutcracker as a member of Little Ballet Theatre. She has also performed works by local Seattle choreographers Laura Aschoff, Donald Byrd, Dayna Hanson, Wade Madsen, Zoe Scofield, and Deborah Wolf. Abby’s love of travel has allowed her to take classes in Stockholm and Uppsala, Sweden, study at the American Dance Festival in Durham, NC, and pursue her growing interest in Anouk van Dijk's Countertechnique movement system.
Aside from traveling and performing, Abby also loves to create and choreograph. In addition to choreographing for her students' annual recitals, her choreography has been performed at the Converge Dance Festival, RAW Seattle's FIXATE, and the Men In Dance Adjudicated Showcase. She has also assisted in coaching students performing in the Moscow Ballet’s Great Russian Nutcracker through their Dance With Us program. Abby has years of teaching experience in the greater Seattle area, and loves sharing her knowledge and the joy of dance with students of all ages.
