Abigail Kasten

Abigail Kasten is thrilled to be in her seventh season at First State Ballet Theatre. Abigail is originally from the Washington, D.C. area and was in the first graduating class of the Akhmedova Ballet Academy. While training, Abigail received second place at the 2013 YAGP Semi-Final for the Odalisque Pas de Trois, and later competed with that same piece in the YAGP New York City Finals. In 2019, Abigail, under the coaching of Leonid Goykhman, received first place at the WBAC semi-finals in both classical and contemporary categories. She also competed in the Vibe International Ballet Competition in Vienna, Austria, where she received the silver medal in the character dance division. Abigail recently began choreographing for local schools and dancers in both contemporary and character dance.  Abigail looks forward to what this year brings and is forever grateful to her family for their endless love and support.
