Abigail Lessaris began her journey with Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre, in 2006, in their annual performance of The Nutcracker when she was 10 years old. She was a student at The Academy of GHDT since its opening in 2009 where she received her most valued dance training under the instruction of Mr. Hancock and the wonderful AGHDT staff. Abbie was a member of G2, the pre-professional company of GHDT, for 6 years until her graduation in the spring of 2014.
Her first show as a full time company dancer was SUPERHERO in April of 2015. Some of her most memorable roles with GHDT include The Cross in SUPERHERO, the Cricket in Pinocchio, and Death in La Casa Azul, The Musical. Abbie is thrilled to be dancing with GHDT and she would like to thank her family for all their love and support in everything she does.
