Abbey Dutton
Actor, Dancer
UBCP | ACTRA
“Abbey brings dedication and intensity to everything she does. As a director it’s comforting to know that she’s always going to come to work prepared and that she’s taken the time to truly understand her character before she gets to set. There’s an authenticity to her performances that can’t be faked and it shows. Her work ethic is undeniable.”
– Nano Clow, Director

Born and raised on the Canadian prairies and lovingly imbued with a mix of creativity, intellect and ambition, Abbey has been an artist from the moment she entered this world. She has trained in scene study, dance, voice, theatre, audition technique, film and more. Having graduated with Honours from the Canadian College of Performing Arts, she later trained with Harbour Dance Centre’s ITP, and then Joanne Pesusich’s The Source Dance Company. She continues to seek out training to not only build her skills, but to foster her creative and artistic development.

Since moving to Vancouver to pursue performing, Abbey has worked independently and commercially with various Vancouver production companies as a dancer, actor and vocalist on both stage and screen. Having performed in film, television, musicals, dance shows, music videos, indie short films and more, some of her select credits include: iZombie, The Detour, The Disney Channel, The Hallmark Channel, BC Dairy, Virgin Atlantic Airlines, Conair, Asus, Del Taco, Acuvue, PlentyofFish.com and more.

Having taught dance and movement since 2007, Abbey has also had the privilege of teaching workshops and adjudicating dance competitions across Western Canada. She believes so deeply that we are all innately and infinitely creative, that she continues to develop her skills as a leader, teacher, artist and coach in order to help others free themselves from their own blocks in order to share their unique artistic expression with the world.

The opportunity to work as a performing artist, with other passionate creatives, is the blessing of a lifetime. Abbey will bring her whole self to any project with gratitude, awe, energy and a centred, joyful soul.
