about me

Grace Jones-Taylor is an award-winning dancer and instructor based in Austin, TX. Known for her innovative exploration within blues idioms and movement quality, Grace seems to live within the music. 

​Grace has been teaching dance professionally since 2012 and has taught at festivals around the world, including NYC, Denver, Chicago, LA, Pittsburgh, Quebec City, and Seoul, South Korea.  

​As a full-time dance teacher, Grace is adept at lesson planning, music selection, and adapting material on the fly to create the best possible learning experience for her students. Her teaching emphasizes collaborative learning, developing personal expression within the idiom, and a follow-focused pedagogy.

​An invaluable resource to students and organizers alike, Grace is accessible and professional both inside and outside of the classroom. 

While Grace has primarily focused on teaching in recent years, she has placed 1st in competitions at Nocturne Blues, North Star Blues, Steel City Blues, Snowbound Blues, Mile High Blues, Blues Muse, European Blues Invasion, and BluesSHOUT.

​Grace's hobbies outside of dance include board games, cooking, and spending time with her oh-so-fluffy cat and dog (Frida and Miri).
