Miss Tracy is a much sought-after ballet instructor who has been teaching in London and the surrounding area for over twenty years.  She began her studies in ballet under such notable teachers as Judith Coleman, Dorothy Scruton, Bernice Harper, and former Royal Winnipeg Ballet soloist Dale Yoshida.  Miss Tracy was personally selected for admittance to Ryerson University’s prestigious Theatre Dance program by faculty director and former National Ballet of Canada prima ballerina Nadia Potts, and graduated the program with distinction.

After receiving her degree from Ryerson, Miss Tracy appeared in several professional dance productions in Toronto before moving to Stuttgart, Germany.  While in Germany, Miss Tracy auditioned for and was admitted to the Pforzheimer Ballett, where she performed as a company member for three years. Her credits with the Pforzheimer Ballet/Oper Pforzheim include Coppelia, Cinderella, Die Fledermaus, Kiss Me, Kate, and Jesus Christ Superstar, as well as an original ballet/modern dance adaptation of Pink Floyd - The Wall.

Miss Tracy is a fully registered teacher with the London, England based Royal Academy of Dance, and teaches all levels of the RAD syllabus.  She has been entering students into the RAD’s examinations for over twenty years with a very high level of success.  Outside of London, Miss Tracy has had the chance to teach the RAD syllabus as far away as Vancouver, Germany, Hong Kong, and the Philippines.  Besides children, Miss Tracy has also taught ballet technique to adults and professional performers, and was invited to give dance instruction for the cast of the mega-musical Miss Saigon while she lived in Stuttgart, Germany.  She has also worked as a dance instructor for several cruise lines, including Celebrity Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line.  

Miss Tracy is one of only three instructors in Canada, and the only teacher in Ontario, to offer the acclaimed Melody Movement with Melody Bear preschool dance curriculum.  She is also a certified instructor of Pilates and yoga, both of which she incorporates into her dance instruction to emphasize the fundamentals of proper body alignment, injury prevention, and core strength.  More recently, Miss Tracy completed her M1 Certification with Acrobatic Arts, an internationally recognized examination board for acro dance.

Away from the dance world, Miss Tracy loves to spend time with her husband and her three beautiful children.
