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 well as teaching and organizing, Abigail is a passionate DJ, having spun at weekly dances and at national events.
