Originally from suburban New York, Tracey moved to La-La Land many years ago to earn her M.A. from UCLA’s School of Theatre, Film and Television. After an exciting 15+ year career in entertainment, Tracey left the rat race in order to start a family. Being a SAHM also gave her the opportunity to get back to her theatrical “roots.” She now teaches “Broadway Beatz” dance classes to children and adults throughout her community, choreographs and directs musical theatre, and coaches private students. In addition, Tracey works as a freelance writer, contributing blog posts, marketing pieces and scripts for various clients. Tracey met her high school teacher husband, Marc, in a musical theatre workshop (that they are still in!) 10 years ago, and they recently celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary. They live in Los Angeles with their 4 year-old spitfire of a daughter, Marissa, who keeps them on their toes (…and doesn’t let them sleep).
