It has been sixteen years since the world was first introduced to a lady named Abigail.
But mind you, she wasn’t just any Abigail.
And we would realize that almost immediately.
Abigail Cowan (@dancer.abigailc) is a once-in-a-lifetime dancer. This #TapInspiration can do just about anything she tries… and she can do it flawlessly. Ballet, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, tap… she can do it all.
Sixteen years later, Abigail s still tappin’ through life. And I mean that literally, because Abigail was most recently in the production of “Tappin’ Through Life,” starring #TapInspiration Maurice Hines, Gregory’s brother! She has also had the privilege of performing on stage with two other #TapInspirations, the indomitable Manzari Brothers (@manzaribrothers), John (@johnmanzari) and Leo (@leomanzari)!
She has learned from a bevy of teachers, including Nichelle (@nillychelle) and Robin Passmore (@rpass133)!
Abigail dances with the grace and skill of Paul Draper and the spirit of Fred Astaire. She is undoubtedly talented, and much of her style comes from her ballet training.
Her family is also instrumental in her training, supporting her at every turn and doing whatever it takes to make sure that Abigail realizes her dreams of making it big in dance.
On top of that, Abigail is so inspiring. There was a video that went viral a while back in which a young ballerina who couldn’t have been more than three was overjoyed when she came face to face with Abigail. I’m not kidding! There is a video out there that shows this precise moment!
Abigail is inspiring because she’s is the personification of hard work and passion and how far it can take you. The road is never easy. There are bumps in the road. But if you take the path that Abigail Cowan took, and if you have faith, there is no height you won’t ascend to.
And Abigail is headed straight for the moon.
Happy Sweet 16, Abigail! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!
