Tracy Foster Borchow

While new to the KJ Dance faculty, Tracy is not a new comer to the dance industry, or dance in the Plano/Collin County area.   Tracy was the owner and director of Studio 511 Performing Arts Center in McKinney, Texas for 20 years from 1986 – 2006.  Since Studio 511 closed in 2006, many of her former students have continued their dance education, and several have gone on to study with nationally known dance educators and various dance programs around the USA.  Some have pursued dance careers, while others are still dancing for the love of dance.  During a transition period after closing her studio, Tracy was a substitute teacher in the McKinney ISD for grades K – 5.   “I love working with young minds that are eager to take in new information, and I thrive on watching them grow.”  After a brief time of substitute teaching in the public school system, she returned to teaching dance at other studios in the DFW metroplex.  She was the manager of Power House of Dance from January 2010 to March 2012.  She is very excited to be back in the classroom doing what she loves most…teaching dance. “Dance has always been in my heart and soul.  I’m so thankful that my parents signed me up for dance lessons when I was only three.”

Tracy received awards in 1978 and 1979 as Miss Drill Team USA, and represented Collin County in the Miss Texas Pageant and the Miss USA Pageant. Formerly a 3 year member of the famous Southwest Texas State University, now know as Texas State University Strutters, she continued her dance education as an active student in the dance department of The University of North Texas. Tracy has enjoyed teaching beginning to advanced levels of dance for over 30 years. While maintaining that ballet is the foundation of all dance and that every “well-trained” dancer continues their study in ballet, tap dance is now her favorite.  “I get a kick out of making music with my feet.”

Recently married, Tracy and Jim live in Dallas.  By marriage, Tracy now has a new daughter, Meredith.  Tracy and Jim are looking forward to adopting a dog when they find the right one.  “We want to get a rescue dog, and are hopeful to find one that is so ugly, it’s cute.”    Tracy and her husband are involved in the arts in Dallas and are thrilled that she is back in the dance room teaching with the staff and students of KJ Dance.
