Abigail 2018 RISING STAR
Out of hundreds of applications Abigail was one of 35 youth artists in the city of Chicago to receive the 2018 Rising Star Honor Roll award from Commissioner Mark Kelly of the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.
Ensemble Español is very proud of Abigail and her achievements and we hope you’ll join us in congratulating her.
“Dancing is important to me because dance has shaped me as a person. Dance has taught me so many things like strength, discipline, respect, and confidence. I express my feelings through dance. I connect with the music and choreography and make the movements my own story. I live in a city that is very diverse and the arts are appreciated by many people. You don’t really see many flamenco dance companies in general, so being able to take flamenco classes in Chicago with a great flamenco company is a great opportunity that I am grateful for.”
The Ensemble Español Youth Company is looking for more creative youth dancers to join them!
