Paula was born and raised in Erie, Pa. She started dancing at the age of 5 and has been dancing and teaching ever since!
As a young dancer she performed on The Original Amateur Hour hosted by Ted Mack. This show specialized in showcasing local talent. Many young stars like Frank Sinatra, Ann Margaret and Pat Boone graced the stage as well!
She has devoted over 50 years of her life teaching children the love of dance! To this day half of Erie can say they have taken a dance class with Miss Paula and they are now bringing 2nd and 3rd generation of dancers to the studio!
