Grace has been dancing since she was 4, and this is her 6th year on Beyond Words. Prior to joining BW in 7th grade, she competed across the country in rhythmic gymnastics and qualified for the Junior Olympic competition 4 times. Highlights from her years with BW include performing in Kate Jablonski’s professional show, Tabula Rasa, at the Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago, receiving scholarships at regional conventions, and learning life lessons about hard work, discipline, self-discovery, and expression. Being a part of BW has also taught Grace how to work as part of a team, to lean on one another and push one another to become better.
Grace is planning on attending college next year and hopes to incorporate dance in many aspects of her life. She would like to thank her family and friends for the continuous support and love, and her parents for believing in her and her dreams. And finally, a huge thank you to Miss Kate for being such an amazing influence in Grace’s life, and for continuing to inspire and push her and the rest of BW to their fullest potentials!
