Meet the Dancer

Traci Urban

Traci is a Reading Specialist at Jackson Elementary School who was “so wonderfully volunteered” to dance by her husband, Marc. She met Marc in high school when he was playing basketball and she was a cheerleader. Basketball still plays a huge role in their lives, as he is currently the Chesterton Boys’ Basketball Coach.  Their daughters, Grace (10) and Averie (7) are their biggest fans! Besides basketball, Traci loves to travel, spend time with family and friends, and anything true crime. Initially, Traci adamantly rejected the thought of dancing in front of a crowd of adults, saying this was WAY out of her comfort zone. However, after learning about all the ways the Duneland YMCA helps adults and children alike throughout the community, she says she realized the importance of this fundraiser and decided to step out of that comfort zone and go for it!
