Tracy started dancing at a young age with Vi Cameron in Surrey. After many years with Vi she received her dance training and education with Betty McHardy and Barbara Tutt. She had the privilege of dancing at Expo 86 and was also the choreographer for the 1999 and 2000 BC Felions as well as co choreography for the 1999 Grey Cup Half time show with Veronica McClurg. Tracy also had training in gymnastics and was a competitive cheerleader and later a coach and judge of countless cheerleading competitions. After opening her own dance studio in 1985 – That’s Jazz School of Dance, in 1999 she partnered up with Rori Bruschinsky and for the next 14 years worked side by side to make Surrey Dance Center a well respected dance studio which produced many dancers that furthered their dance dreams on TV, video, cruise ships and teaching.
After being a student of Pilates for over 10 years in 1998 she took a teacher training program from Pilates from the Center Pilates School of Natural Movement with Matilda Christensen and Surrey Pilates Studio with Veronica McClurg and graduated after over 1000 hours of intensive schooling in the classical pilates method. Tracy has continued to educate herself in functional movement in which she feels passionate about as a former dancer and dance studio director. Tracy
She brings energy and enthusiasm to her classes and wants to educate the dancers to keep them injury free and to understand the movements from the inside out. Tracy loves the Encore/PMSD family and is thrilled to be back for her 7thyear.
