Before directing and choreographing, Tracey was a performer who began her career at an early age. She graduated high school early to perform at Disneyworld and then worked as both a rock singer and a professional dancer in LA, where she appeared in commercials, films, and live shows at Universal Studios, Disneyland, the Pantages Theater, and the Hollywood Bowl. She played the iconic Hollywood rock clubs (Trubadour, Roxy, Viper Room, The Mint) with her original rock band Blue, and toured internationally with The Pet Shop Boys. Her work eventually led her to Broadway, where she appeared in the original cast of The Who’s Tommy and as an early replacement for the Broadway company of Rent, playing the roles of Maureen, Ms. Cohen, and Alexi Darling. Tracey’s rock star dreams came true when she toured and recorded two albums with rock legend Pete Townshend, as featured vocalist and rhythm guitarist.
Tracey is the creator and writer of the rock musical Life After Life and the co-writer of Empyrea, a scripted parkour theatrical production, currently in development. Her teaching credits include the University of Southern California, The Smith Center, Orange County High School of The Arts, Camp Broadway, Disney Musicals in Schools, and master classes throughout the US and abroad.
