TRACEE KAFER WORKSHOPS SUNDAY APRIL 26th
ADVANCE REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT REQUIRED. PLEASE CALL 203-693-3111 TO REGISTER
Dance was a first love for Tracee Kafer, who started at the innocent age of 3. Many moons later, and with over 25 years of training in multiple genres, she has now turned feverishly to pole dancing to reach new heights (…literally) and it has only deepened her attachment to dance as a means of artistic expression. She believes that dance can create a deeper knowledge of self, of life’s experiences, and of the connections we have to one another. Tracee has diverse background in pole dance training, in 2011 was certified by the X-Pert Pole Fitness Certification Program and in 2014 was certified by elevatED Teacher Trainings. She has trained with pole professionals from all over the world, most notably working with the entire stellar Body & Pole instructor team. Tracee has multiple years of experience working with pole dancers and aerialists to grow their artistic visions on stage and in the studio…whether that includes improvisational training, choreography, or technique and refinement.
Tracee is known for Finding Your Freestyle, and Pole Speak, which emerged out of techniques from Finding Your Freestyle combined with the unending quest to master the artistic language of pole. She has been involved with ÆRA, a non-profit aerial dance company, performing and choreographing in New York. Tracee pursues a career in creative design and marketing (Clients include elevatED, bodybinds, MIXT Dance, Train P3, and WeFly) and is currently Body & Pole’s Marketing Director.
