Grace’s performance often incorporates elements of her classical, contemporary, and improvisational training, and is invigorated by her lithe humor. She particularly enjoys toying with bold characters and the abstract body whilst onstage. As a performer, she is fascinated by her own physical experience of performance, and the ways in which she can interact with and build a world for the audience. Grace has performed in works choreographed by Shamel Pitts, Chuck Wilt/UNA Productions, Patricia Hoffbauer, Jose Límon, Allyson Green, Ihsan Rustem, Bob Fosse, Donald Mckayle, other student choreographers, and herself.
