Paige has been dancing since she was 2 years old and grew up training competitively at All-Stars Dance Center in Westfield, MA under the instruction of Kim Starsiak and Kelly Kennedy. She shifted from student to teacher there before joining The Dance Studio family in the fall of 2016.

Paige is very excited to be the head instructor of The Dance Studio Competitive Performance Team in Wilbraham, MA! She will also be the head instructor this season at our new location in Windsor Locks, CT. When she is not dancing or teaching, Paige can be found eating ice cream, spending time with family and friends, using essential oils, and planning her next trip to Walt Disney World! Paige is very honored to share her love of teaching, dance, theater, and choreography, and begin her 7th year with The Dance Studio Family!
Paige is grateful for the support of her fiancé and family in this endeavor!
