Get ready to meet Tracy at the Barre…
All NEW Dynamic Pilates/Barre classes coming to TPB this summer!
Originally from Fairfax, Virginia, Tracy spent 11 years training at The Center for Ballet Arts under Deborah and Ben Savage (New Orleans Ballet Company), studying Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Floor Barre, Pilates, and Yoga. After performing the coveted role of Clara in CBA’s “Nutcracker,” her company career was cut short with a serious knee injury. This injury caused her to take a greater interest in Musical Theatre, which became her passion for the next nine years. She has performed lead roles in numerous musicals, trained in NYC with Juilliard dance coaches, and won Washington D.C.’s FameUS Competition (judged by Debbie Allan: “Fame”) for her dancing and singing.
As part of her Degree in Musical Theatre/Education (Benjamin T. Rome School of Music), she trained daily with Washington D.C.’s top dance teachers, and choreographed and performed professionally. She furthered her training at the Guildford School of Acting in England, where she recently received her Master’s Degree.
During her time abroad, she met Paola Di Lanzo, a reputable London-based Pilates/Barre trainer. Paola brought Tracy on board to launch her high-end boutique fitness studio, Paola’s BodyBarre, which opened successfully last February. During her time as Manager, Tracy developed her own branch of Paola’s BodyBarre Technique, a method combining Dynamic Pilates and Barre Conditioning. Through Paola’s private business Pilates At Home, Tracy also privately trained celebrity clients, pre/post natal mothers, and those recovering from injuries in Pilates and Barre Conditioning. She holds a NESTA Pilates Certification and is a certified Weight Control Counselor. Her fitness philosophy is mind over matter: she loves helping her clients build strength, endurance, and confidence through positivity and a focused mind-body connection!
