Paige has explored a variety of dances – from ballroom to burlesque – but it was Latin street styles that stole her heart. While she enjoys performing and competing in salsa and bachata, the social floor is where she feels most at home. Paige is passionate about community-building and is always looking for ways to make her classes, and the dance scene, more welcoming and inclusive. She also loves promoting all the benefits she has experienced since becoming a dancer – more confidence, new friends, better posture, and a ton of sparkly shoes.
