… connected, nourishing, full of permission. A kind of redefining how “successful” feels and looks.




Dance was a first love for Tracee Kafer, who began at 3 and went on to journey through well over 30 years of training and experience in classical and contemporary genres.

She’s moved though the landscapes of student, performer, nationally-ranked competitor, world-traveling teacher, NY-based choreographer, and in the last decade alone shifted passionately and purposefully to the realms of the explorer. Practicing and facilitating her own ever-evolving freestyle movement methods in the energetics of groups, she aims to continuously untether from genre, style, convention, and apparatus in order to gather in the communal love of moving from an authentic voice.

Tracee created Finding Your Freestyle® (FYF) in 2012, a movement and lifestyle enterprise that encourages freedom in movement, expression, creativity and community. Tracee has facilitated workshops and intensives in the FYF methods all over the US and internationally, and has fostered a global community of “freestylers” who regularly utilize the practices in their own movement, creative endeavors, and life. In the last 7+ years, Tracee has hosted immersive movement retreats in places like Sedona, Costa Rica, New York, and San Diego.

Tracee founded and co-directed the pole dance improvisational-based company Pole Speak (with co-director Jess Linick), which emerged out of techniques from FYF combined with the unending quest to master the artistic languages of improv and pole dancing.

A true inspiration addict with an insatiable appetite for both the cerebral and esoteric, Tracee is currently a new Family and Systemic Constellations facilitator, practicing integrative tarot and crystal work, is Reiki-attuned, certified in HypnoConstellations™ and Floor Flow®, and is a dedicated meditator (trained in guiding with Jeff Warren), bibliophile, graphic arts, and tech nerd.

Additionally, Tracee spends the other half of her creative life as a graphic designer and creative director for the world-renowned pole and aerial dance studio, Body & Pole. In years past she has worked with many other amazing movement brands like elevatED Teacher Trainings, Black Girls Pole, Train P3, and Bodybinds, as well as Apple, Inc. as a Software Trainer at their SoHo flagship.
