Beginning in 1998, Abigail Browning fell in love with the grace and athleticism of swing dancing, and has pursued the art and history of Lindy Hop, Balboa, and Charleston ever since. As she teaches, Abigail fosters creativity and musicality for leads and follows through technique, and emphasizes body control through isolation, repetition, and balance while having fun and preserving the historical integrity of the dance.

In addition to teaching, Abigail opened Vintage Rhythm Dance Studio in Nashville, TN in 2006 where she organized events through 2008. As well as teaching and organizing, Abigail is a passionate DJ, having spun at weekly dances and at national events. She has since taught and DJed in Washington, DC at The Jam Cellar, and now lives and teaches locally in North Carolina.

Ms. Browning loves performing and has co-founded two all-female troupes; her former DC Cherry Blossoms (while she lived in Washington, DC) and she currently performs with The Carolina Fascinators (based in Raleigh/Durham, NC).

Currently, Aba lives in the Piedmont Triad area in North Carolina, as she attends UNC Greensboro for an MFA in Creative writing.
