Gabbie is a contemporary dancer, acrobat and Chinese pole artist, based in the UK. Her training started at age six, competing in elite Artistic Gymnastics and she continued on to train at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance (NSCD), graduating in 2014.

Throughout her career, she has had the pleasure of working with many inspirational artists and companies such as Acrojou, Becky Namgauds, Tom Dale Company, Scarabeus and Pirates of the Carabina. In future, she is set to work with Czech based company Cirk La Putyka and continue touring children’s theatre with Superfan.

In 2017, Gabbie created Moving Through Acrobatics, an Acro Dance workshop for students and professionals, which she co-teaches with fellow acrobat Nat Whittingham.

They later formed a performance company, Sneaky&Raptor, and were co-commissioned by Glastonbury Festival and Circus City to create their debut show.
