Grace is a pre-med student at MSU with minors in both Dance and Spanish. Her dance training began at the age of 3 as a student at Deborah’s Stage Door in Rochester Hills, Michigan. Grace later moved to Rochester School of Dance, where she received most of her formal dance training in styles including ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, and modern. There, she was a member of the main company at Michigan Ballet Theatre and performed various principal roles in performances of The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, and Coppélia. She also traveled with Michigan Ballet Theatre to YAGP (Youth America Grand Prix) competitions around the country, and to the world finals in New York City, New York.
Grace also has significant experience in hip-hop and pom, styles she focused on while on her high school dance team. Grace was on the Stoney Creek High School Varsity Dance Team for all four years of her high school career, and was a captain for her junior and senior year. Her team competed at UDA nationals, where in 2019 they were pom national finalists and achieved 3rd place in the game day category.
Now, Grace is pursuing a minor in Dance at Michigan State, and also teaches summer classes at a studio in her hometown. She is beyond excited and thankful to join the staff at Kick It Out! and lead the dancers to success.
