Tracy joins Ballet Fantastique from her work with Colorado Ballet. Born and raised in Colorado, Tracy began her training in ballet at the age of twelve and immediately fell in love with it. Tracy trained under many fantastic teachers in Colorado and received multiple acceptances and scholarships for training programs. She was accepted to and attended Boston Ballet’s Summer Program at the age of fifteen and came back with her sights set on dancing professionally. After attending a Summer Program in 2014 with the Colorado Ballet, she was offered a contract to dance in their studio company for the 2014-2015 season. She returned to the company for two additional seasons and performed in many ballets including Swan Lake, George Balanchine’s Serenade, and The Nutcracker. In addition to the ballets with the company, Tracy performed in Colorado Ballet’s outreach "Page to Stage” productions and toured schools and hospitals in the Denver area.
In her first season with Ballet Fantastique, Tracy has performed as The Ghost of Christmas Past in An American Christmas Carol (with Halie Loren, 2017 performances and tour), and as a Golden Girl/Saucy Wench and as a Spectre in the world premiere of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (with Dreos + Gerry Rempel Ensemble, premiere 2017).
Tracy began her teaching career as a teacher's assistant at the age of thirteen. By the age of seventeen she had a weekly teaching position at the Colorado School of Dance in Parker, CO. Tracy loves teaching ballet to ages two through adult and has enjoyed watching her students’ successes. In addition to the year-round program and summer intensives at the Colorado School of Dance, Tracy has taught at multiple studios in the Denver area, including the Academy of Colorado Ballet. She has taught week-long kindergarten summer dance camps for two years in a row. She was trained in Vaganova as a student and also incorporates other styles into her teaching. Tracy strives to connect with each student and to help them to reach their own best. She has a fluid, connected class that also helps students incorporate their own artistic side into their technical work.
