Margaret Tracey joined the faculty of Boston Ballet School in 2005 and was appointed Director in 2007. In that time, she has transformed the highly respected regional academy into one of the leading dance education institutions in North America. Born in Pueblo, CO, Tracey began ballet studies with her mother, Nancy Tracey, at age six. In 1982, she was accepted as a student at the School of American Ballet, the official school of New York City Ballet (NYCB).
In 1986, Tracey joined the NYCB corps de ballet, launching a celebrated 16-year stage career. Tracey was a principal dancer with NYCB from 1991 until her retirement in 2002. Since retiring from New York City Ballet, Tracy has become one of the country’s most admired and dedicated teachers and arts education advocates.
