This year, "Ms. Grace" is heading to St. Louis to pursue her dreams in marketing for a dance costume company. Even with her new adventures though, Grace will be choreographing competition pieces for the year! Grace started dancing at the age of three, and began her twelve year journey at Elite in 2005. Grace was a part of Elite’s original Mini-Troupe Dance Company. She was also a founding member of the Junior Dance Company. Grace was awarded many regional and national honors during her competitive dance career with Elite. She participated in Marshall University’s S.C.O.R.E.S. competition in the dance solo division, winning first place as a sophomore in high school. She also traveled to NYC, where she trained with the Joffrey Ballet School in the jazz/contemporary program. Grace joined the Elite staff in 2017. Over the past few years, Grace's powerful choreography has placed highly at regional competitions, and received special choreography and judge's awards.
