Her Story

After studying at the Peabody Conservatory Dance Program, Grace was accepted to a prestigious performing arts high school named Baltimore School for the Arts. While there, she trained 4-6 hours each day in classical ballet and performed principal roles such as the “Sugar Plum Fairy” in The Nutcracker as well as corps de ballet in Balanchine’s Serenade and Who Cares? Upon graduating in 2017, Grace accepted a scholarship to study at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, where she will graduate on honor role with a BFA in Dance Performance and BBA in Business in 2021.

While at Southern Methodist University, Grace receives training in classical ballet, Graham technique, and commercial jazz. She has also performed in neoclassical ballet, contemporary ballet, classical ballet, tap, jazz, and modern works created by choreographers such as Dwight Rhoden, Christopher d’Amboise, and Barry Hughson.

Over the years, Grace has traveled all over the United States to dance with American Ballet Theater in New York, Houston Ballet, Indiana University, Boston Conservatory, and Boston Ballet in their pre-professional summer intensives and is looking forward to many more exciting opportunities!

Outside of dance, Grace enjoys running, painting, hiking, and learning more about the business world. In addition to her dancing skills, Grace works part-time as a website developer for a firm located in Baltimore, Maryland.
