Abigail Ventura couldn’t imagine her life without dance. Her love for music and dance started when she was just a toddler.
Fast forward more than 25 years later, Ventura is now a professional dancer who specializes in Spanish styles of dance like flamenco and teaches instructional dance at a local dance company. One day, she started feeling minor pain around her hip and groin area.
“Growing up, I was always super active. Before I became a professional dancer, I was a competitive gymnast and cheerleader in high school, so I thought I had pulled a muscle and just worked through the pain,” Ventura says.
