Miss Grace teaches on a Wednesday night at Mereside Community Centre and loves teaching Ballet & Freestyle.
Miss Grace started dancing when she was 6 at a dance school in Wolverhampton where Michelle was a teacher! She loved ballet and knew she wanted to teach so started her teachers exams at 16 and went on to teach for 4 years. Life took her in a different direction, away from dance and teaching and into the glamorous life of Emirates Cabin Crew working in Dubai. During this time time Grace met her husband and she spent some time as an Army Wife in Wiltshire. Upon returning to Shropshire Grace enquired about adult ballet classes at Footlights and upon realising she had teaching qualifications in dance and a fabulous personality Michelle offered her a job! "I am so glad I decided to look into going to dance classes again for a bit of me time - teaching at Footlights has brought back my love and passion for dance and spending time with the Footlights Family makes me feel amazing!"
We asked every Footlights team member to answer the following questions so that we can get to know the person behind the purple t-shirt!
