Abigail Morwood’s path to ballet was anything but conventional. “I got my first contract when I was 15,” she says. With her parents’ support, Morwood left formal high school to dance full-time with Montgomery Ballet, earning her diploma in the evenings after rehearsal. “I had only been dancing five years, but I studied YouTube videos and books about ballet technique like a crazy person all day, every day. I had to learn somehow.” Morwood’s experiences with Montgomery Ballet gave her experience and confidence that she says make her a stronger dancer. Morwood joined the Cincinnati Ballet Second Company in 2009 and worked her way up to Soloist for the 15-16 Season. She participated in an international ballet competition in Beijing China in July, 2015, along with other top dancers from around the world.
