Abigail has lived in St Margarets for six years, originally hailing from Scotland where she danced with Scottish Ballet, the country’s national ballet company.
Last year she opened Marble Hill Dance Studio, which started with 20 students and now boasts 70, all through word of mouth. Abigail decided to open the school as she felt the area was lacking a local dance school.

The school is based at her husband’s pub — The Crown that is situated on Richmond Road. The function room has been specially equipped with mirrors and barres to accommodate dance lessons.
