Abbi Topper started dancing at the age of three. At first she took ballet and tap through her local rec department. After three years she started training at Forte Studios, where she took classes including ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, pointe, and modern for thirteen years. She also has been teaching ballet, jazz, and hip hop classes the last three years. In addition, she was in X-Tension dance company from sophomore year of high school through senior year, and two of those years she was captain. Being involved with this pre-professional company gave her multiple performing opportunities including dancing in a show in Illinois, performing at Six Flags, and more than one basketball half-time shows. In X-Tension, she found her love for creating and sharing choreography which she was lucky enough to participate in multiple company seasons. In the future, her goal is to continue with teaching dance classes and creating choreography. This is Abbi’s first season with MCD and she is grateful for the opportunity to start her career with this company.
