Grace found her love for tapping at the age of 8 and worked hard at the genre to achieve her Tap Gold Star for CSTD in 2015. Grace discovered she also enjoyed the acting and musical theatre aspects of performing arts in 2012 when she started private and groups lessons under the guidance of Rebecca Hutchins, achieving her ATCL Teaching and Performing Diplomas of Musical Theatre. She went on to perform in numerous plays and musicals at the local Bundaberg Playhouse Theatre in Queensland. Her credits include, but are not limited to, Evita the Musical (The Mistress), Wicked (Nessarose) and The Drowsy Chaperone (Janet Van De Graff). During her time at the theatre she was also the Youth Theatre Director for a year and choreographed Pirates of Penzance Jr and High School Musical the Stage Production.
