Abby Fish was born and raised in Harleysville, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. She began taking ballet and gymnastic classes at the age of six, but did not start her professional dance training until the age of twelve after moving to Morristown, Tennessee. Her serious dance training began at Kingsport Ballet under the direction of Valeria Sinyavskaya where she was a member of the senior company throughout her high school years. While at Kingsport Ballet, Abby performed as a soloist in many full-length ballet productions such as The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, and her favorite– Don Quixote. Additionally, Abby showcased her jazz, contemporary, and musical theatre skills in annual showcases, galas, and fundraisers. In fall 2015, Abby attended the Tennessee Dance Festival in Murfreesboro, Tennessee with her studio where she was awarded the Van R. Ault Scholarship for Summer Study. The following October, Abby was invited to dance as a guest performer in the festival’s showcase. Abby also spent her summers dancing away from home. Some summer programs she was accepted into include: The American Ballet Theatre, Radford University, Russian Ballet Orlando, and the Indiana Ballet Conservatory. More recently, Abby has decided to try competitive dance with Dance Elite and has found that she has grown as a dancer and choreographer throughout the whole competition experience.
Currently, Abby is a freshman at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville where she is majoring in Medical Laboratory Sciences. Upon graduating college, Abby hopes to become a medical lab scientist for the Armed Forces. However, Abby does not plan to stop dancing or teaching any time soon! She hopes to join Boss Dance Company in Knoxville and to continue teaching ballet, lyrical/contemporary, and musical theatre at Dance Elite.
