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 sixteen 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 as well as continuing her educational studies at BHSU. She was a mentor/assistant teacher for four years working with our program directors and is entering her second year of instruction. Certified in First Aid/CPR, Grace’s love for children and 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. For the 2019-20 year, she will be interning with Ms. Sara and Ms. Julie to continue to grow this service mission. She was an elected Officer of our South Dakota Chapter of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts, spending two years with the organization. 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!
