(104) Margaret Tracey, Director of Boston Ballet School

Posted by on 08.27.2018

Summer is almost over and many of our listeners are getting ready to head back to school. To help ease us into that transition, we sat down with the director of the Boston Ballet School, Margaret Tracey. Margaret had an illustrious 16 year career as a principal at the New York City Ballet, dancing a massive repertoire of works by George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, Trey Mcintyre, William Forsythe and Peter Martins. Margaret began teaching at Boston Ballet School in 2005, and accepted her position as director in 2007. In today’s episode, we talk to Margaret from the Vail Dance Festival about how her years as a dancer inform her work as a teacher, how she tailors teaching methods to each individual student, and how she plans to continue to expand and enrich the programs offered at the Boston Ballet School.

  1. Dear Ms. Tracey;

    Had a chance to see you, very early during your NYCB career, dancing second movement of Bizet. Others were fresh in one’s mind. You did an exceptional job that night and in many other incarnations of dance during your time with the Company, and am certain elsewhere on the dance stages of the world.

    Boston is a somewhat new start for you. Do It!!! MOVE DANCE AND THE UNIVERSE FORWARD.

    Always, the best to you and all who are in the forefront of an artistic expression that is wordless, and speaks volumes to and about the species called human.

    Sincere regards,

    Thomas Grant Weaver
