After drifting away from dance for many years, Griff thankfully built her confidence to return to her passion and is now a company artist with Collage Dance Collective, a Memphis-based dance company.

Rise to Dance

Collage Dance Collective prides itself as a space for dancers of color, particularly Black dancers, to receive development, training and opportunities to be seen across the globe. McGriff has danced across the country, and has an extensive resume including choreographing the Nickelodeon Black History Month commercial featuring Misty Copeland.
