Miss Grace’s love of dance began as a young child at The Hawthorns School, where she excelled through her ISTD Ballet, Tap and Modern syllabi and graded Jazz Awards.
From the age of 10 she competed in local dance festivals and performed in professional pantomimes. She secured a place at Songtime Theatre Arts Company, where she established a solid foundation by receiving excellent technical training in stage craft, vocals, acting and dancing. She performed in a number of productions and was nominated for Best Newcomer and Best Achievement Awards.
She successfully auditioned for Italia Conti Theatre Arts Centre, where her teacher training began. Miss Grace is currently advancing her training qualifications with Dance Teachers Inc and regularly attends refresher courses with them.
