Grace was born to dance. She currently studies at the Ballet School of Chapel Hill and performs with the Chapel Hill Dance Theatre. She is fascinated with all forms of traditional dance which goes hand in hand with her love of languages and world culture. Because of this, she especially enjoys travelling to international festivals and meeting dancers and musicians from around the world. She has been playing the classical violin for as long as she can remember and performs with the Chapel Hill High School orchestra. As an Irish fiddler, she lets her fingers do the dancing while playing traditional tunes from County Clare and County Galway. She is a member of the local bands The Carrboro Ceili Band and The Piedmont Allstars; she was drawn to clogging after seeing dancers at her Allstars gigs. She took lessons with Apple Chill in 2003 and has been whooping it up as our youngest member ever since. view her flickr page!
