Traci was born in El Paso, TX and received her ballet training from Ingeborg Heuser before attending TCU on scholarship. She danced professionally with Ballet El Paso, Hartford Ballet, and Ballet Arizona, and danced with both Chautauqua Ballet and NCDT for over 16 seasons.

She has created roles in Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux’s Nutcracker and Romeo and Juliet, as well as numerous roles for Mark Diamond, Mark Godden, Sasha Janes, Alonzo King, and Dwight Rhoden. Some of her favorite roles are Apollo, Giselle, In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated, Caroline in Lilac Garden, and Lucy in Dracula. Traci now serves as repetiteur for NCDT and NCDT2. She would like to thank Dance Theater and the Charlotte audiences for their support of her dancing over the years.
