Graceann is an actor, writer, director, and producer. After graduating from New York University with a degree in Dance Education, she stayed in NYC where she danced with several choreographers and presented her own work. On a whim, she took an improv class at the People's Improv Theater and was instantly hooked on the idea that she could speak on stage and have a more direct connection to the audience. She continued her improv training through all the levels at the PIT and Advanced Study at Upright Citizens Brigade. Improv opened the door to dramatic acting, which she loves just as much (or maybe more). Her dramatic acting training includes Deena Levy Theatre Studio and Shakespeare and Company.
In addition to acting, she also writes, directs, and produces her own work. Her debut short film THE SKULL has been an official selection in several film festivals. Her web series DOUBLE D won Best Comedy at the 2015 Princeton Independent Film Festival, and her pilot UNIDENTIFIED was an official selection in the 2014 New York Television Festival. She has written, directed and produced lots of online videos, and was a writer/director/performer for two seasons of PITtv, the digital video arm of the People's Improv Theater.
She performs regularly around NYC in various sketch and character shows, and with her two-prov team Double D. When she's not doing any of the above, she's running, dancing, eating, or more likely intensively training her cat to play fetch. Random skills include headstands, being able to bend her index fingers backwards a lot, and having an allergy to every single cute animal in the world, even her own cat.
