Early life and education

In 2011, Paige, her sister and their mother, entered the first season of the reality dancing competition show “Dance Moms”, which continues airing to this day, currently starring Abby Lee Miller, Nia Sioux and Holly Frazier.

While on the show, Paige was considered to be the least skilled dancer on the team, and was thus occasionally treated unfairly by her dance instructor Abby, and because of this, Paige’s mother often got into a fight with Abby.
