Paisley Payne

Ballet & Combo
Paisley is from Spanish Fork, Utah. She started taking ballet classes at age four and found her love for other genres of dance when she started at Lifehouse. Although ballet holds her heart, Paisley was trained in contemporary, jazz, and modern at Lifehouse for five years. Hip and other muscle problems occurred in her sophomore year of high school, and after receiving two hip surgeries, she made the difficult decision to stop dancing. The next year she gained her full certification as a yoga instructor and began her journey into teaching.  She is so happy to have the opportunity to continue her love of dance through teaching.
Paisley adores working and connecting with young children, and gained her certification through LeapNLearn in the summer of 2022. She attends Utah Valley University majoring in behavioral management and loves taking child education courses. Always eager to learn more, she loves reading, nannying young children, and teaching yoga to improve herself. Paisley is very excited to teach and learn from the students at Lifehouse. She hopes to truly understand them, and help the dancers gain self confidence and a love for dance.
