Although Tracy’s roots aren’t directly stemmed from Latin America, she has loved the culture since childhood. She was born and raised in beautiful San Diego and has been married since 2004 to her husband of Hispanic heritage and together they raise their 2 wonderful daughters. Upon completion of High School, Tracy went on to Southwestern College to finish her Associate degree while taking medical classes at a nearby trade school. She found a love for bringing positivity into a child’s life while working for the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District. Tracy was able to work as a school clerk, a teacher’s aid, as well as a paraprofessional in Special Education within the district’s various schools and quickly, saw the way a positive attitude can change a child’s outlook on their own capabilities.
Before Tracy found DanzArts, she knew she wanted a dance company that would encourage and push her daughters to do their absolute best while building confidence and self-esteem; a company that cares about the child as a whole, with each one being unique and with abilities that vary. With much joy, she came upon DanzArts!
Tracy and her family have been a part of DanzArts since 2015. In 2017, Tracy was chosen by Patricia Astorga-Casey to be the Treasurer of the DanzArts fast-growing company. Patricia has a passion for a dancer’s success that is inviting and contagious! Tracy feels blessed to be not only the Treasurer of a growing company but a tool in bringing Patricia’s dream to fruition.
