Early Childhood Instructor
Grace was born and raised in the heart of the beautiful Black Hills. She has been dancing with the Academy of Dance Arts for the past seventeen years, training in ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, and modern dance. Grace will be continuing her dancing studies this fall while teaching our Early Childhood dancers. She was a mentor/assistant teacher for four years working with our program directors and is entering her third year of instruction. Certified in First Aid/CPR, Grace’s love for children and dance along with her many years of training allow her to shine as she puts her skills to work with many of our youngest dancers this season.
Grace has been an active member of our Academy Company, contributing to our community outreach programs. She is our newest Academy social media contributor. Grace was an elected Officer of our South Dakota Chapter of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts, spending two years with the organization and now helps to guide their meetings as a faculty assistant. It was her childhood dream to be a dance instructor and we are thrilled Grace is continuing to share her love of dance with our lucky students!
