Abigail Joyce

Abigail has been dancing at SSOD since age 2. She studies Ballet, Modern, Pointe, Hip Hop, Jazz, Jazz Funk and Tap. Abigail is currently a level 2 student at Holy Trinity High School. In May of 2016 Abigail successfully completed the Grade 5 ISTD Modern exam and the Grade 6 Cecchetti Ballet exam. She is currently working on Grade 6 Modern and Intermediate level Ballet. Over the last several years, Dance has been a growing passion of Abigail's and she has travelled outside the province to broaden her dance experiences. In 2013 and again in 2015, Abigail studied at Broadway Dance Centre in New York City. In May 2014 Abigail was awarded the SSOD Bethany Danielle Pike Scholarship. In 2014 she travelled to Halifax to attend the ITP Summer Intensive at Maritime Dance Academy. In November 2015 Abigail was selected to perform with Canada's Ballet Jorgen's “Sleeping Beauty” during their St. John's tour. I am very excited to welcome Abigail to the SSOD Teacher assistant/mentoring program and look forward to having her thrive and grow with this opportunity.
