Hi I'm Grace!

As a toddler, my parents said I was always climbing things, running around, and getting upside down. Not much has changed.

I was an elementary school teacher for 9 years, when I first fell in love with fitness and yoga (for sanity sake). I started teaching my own classes part-time at night in 2005, and eventually switched careers when my first daughter was born.

My number one priority is to be the best mother and wife for my two beautiful and sweet girls, and my supportive and loving husband. Outside of teaching and exercising, I love traveling to the sun (beach) and snow (snowboarding), watching movies, playing board games, eating dessert, and spending quality time with my loved ones.

Thank you for finding your way here and joining my extended family!

About Stop Drop and Dance®

Growing up as a competitive dancer, Grace felt that dance was always associated with perfection, alignment, and standing out.  It mattered how good of a dancer you were.  It mattered how synchronized your troupe was.  It mattered where you stood in your formations.

Of course, all of that is important for performances and professional dancing!  However, she reached a point in her life where she just wanted to dance, for the pure JOY of it.

Grace created Stop Drop And Dance® in an effort to invite and unite dancers and non-dancers to follow simple choreography using popular songs on the radio, and get a great workout at the same time.

No mirrors, no competition, no ego. Grace never imagined Stop Drop And Dance® would become a community, a tribe, a family. It is now her healing space and she hopes it can be yours too.
