She was mentored by Steppenwolf ensemble members in the techniques that underpin the training and ethos of the company and followed on to teach at The Steppenwolf Theatre Company School. She has also trained at Black Box Acting Chicago and iO Chicago and has been fortunate enough to be taught and mentored by some of Chicago’s premier theatre artists.

“The methods that really hit home for me are Meisner, Viewpoints & Improvisation; anything that demands spontaneity, to get out of my brain, into my body and re-connect with my impulse” – Julia Grace
