Abi Bannon – Yoga, Creative Dance and Petit Ballet

Growing up in Castlemaine, Abi’s love of dance was nurtured in the beautiful culture of Over the Moon, through which she crammed as many classes into her life as she could!

Since moving to Melbourne, Abi has obtained degrees in Human Geography at the University of Melbourne and Contemporary Dance at Deakin University. In that time, she has also been a member of pre-professional contemporary dance company Yellow Wheel, choreographing and performing in multiple works. More recently she has interned and volunteered with Lucy Guerin Inc, and continued her journey as a choreographer through Dancehouse’s Emerging Choreographers program.

With a deep love of community and the environment, Abi is particularly passionate about helping to create a world in which people and the natural environment can live together happily and sustainably and is excited by the possibilities within dance to help achieve this. Through various projects Abi has developed strong skills in facilitation and community building, with a particular focus on the healing, expressive and transformative potential in dance and movement.
