Traci Ries

Tumbling Instructor

Miss Traci grew up tumbling at Rising Star Tumbling and Dance Studio and started cheerleading her senior year of high school at NCHS. When she attended camp for UCA (Universal Cheerleading Association), she tried out for the All-Star Team and was invited to cheer and dance in the London New Year’s Day parade. Traci tried out for the University of Wyoming Cheer squad as a freshman and received a scholarship and cheered for Wyoming during her 4 years of college. During the summers of her college career, she was a UCA(Universal Cheerleading Association) camp instructor. After graduating from college, she was lucky enough to be hired by the UW athletic department and coached the Cowboy cheer and dance team for 6 years. At that point, she started her family and had 4 beautiful children. Traci has taught tumbling and spirit classes the past few years at Rising Star and she is so excited to share her love of cheerleading with the students at Rising Star.
