about me

Growing up in a family of artists, Grace has been performing since she was 4. Combined with her lifelong love of big band/jazz music and vintage fashion, when she discovered her first lindy hop class in 2012, she was hooked. She can be seen on the social dance floors across Southern California up to five nights a week. Greatly inspired by the original Southern California dancers of the 1930s, her interests expanded from Lindy Hop to Balboa to Collegiate Shag.

 

She regularly teaches these dances and competes all around Southern California and across the country, and has placed at numerous events including Camp Hollywood, the International Lindy Hop Championships, and Lindy Focus. Grace is also a member of the performance company The Hollywood Hotshots, performing and sharing historical American vernacular jazz dances like Lindy Hop, Balboa, and Charleston in live events, music videos, film, and television. With her background music, she is also a sought after DJ.

 

Grace brings her joy of the dance to her teaching style, encouraging a sense of fun in her students, while reinforcing strong connection technique and beautiful basics. She also loves to bring along some historical So-Cal style and technique to her lessons.
