Celebrity Dancers

Tracy Troutman

I am the woman to beat in 2020’s Dancing for a Cause! My family and I have called Gainesville home for over 20 years. I am no stranger to the stage, performing in a plethora of community productions, and I attribute any and all talents to genetics, coming directly from my three daughters, Perry, Alston and Charleston. A highlight of my off-off-off Broadway career was playing Sister Mary Lazarus AKA the Rappin’ Nun! I am, however, most fond of the role I have played for 39 years as the drummer’s wife. As the “out of the box” art teacher at Fair Street International Academy, I can’t wait to share my “How I Danced My Way Through the Summer!” video with my students this fall.
