Traci is an eloquent and experienced teacher with a wide variety of ability levels. She is fair and balanced in the classroom and keeps the atmosphere fun while expecting the most of her students.

As a Director of a company and school, I have seen many guest teachers come and go - Traci is a phenomenal teacher.

I highly recommend Traci as a teacher! She gives such thoughtful, detailed corrections, in a very positive way. She values strong technique, as well as artistry, and notices the small nuances that can really take a dancer to the next level. After working with Traci, I feel that she really gives her full attention when teaching, and desires the best out of everyone. She knows how to communicate corrections in a way that really can pull something out of students when they had previously felt stuck. All of this is done in a very encouraging manner. She would be a wonderful choice as a teacher!

I hired Traci as my personal Ballet instructor and she absolutely exceeded my expectations. Traci was clear and concise with her directions for each combination, she answered my questions graciously and really focused in on proper alignment and technique. She made me feel comfortable and gave me some awesome advice along with challenging combinations for my level. Traci's positive vibe in class and wise choice of music made for an exquisite class. I highly recommend Traci as a Ballet teacher and I cannot wait to take from her again!
