About Me!

I am Paige Pryhocki a University of Kentucky Alumni (2023). I have been establishing who I am as a choreographer starting at the age of 14. I have been a dancer and performer since the age of 2 and have formed a strong bond and passion for dance. I served as the Vice President (21-22) and President (22-23) of the UK Dance Ensemble in addition to my 4 years as a member and choreographer. My studies with the Department of Dance at the University of Kentucky has pushed me to dive deep into my creativity and find what kind of artist I am as well as why art is so important to me. I value art in my life because it allows me to express my ideas and share with others in a positive environment. I have had the privilege of being an instructor at STEPS Performing Arts for a full season after graduating. I have loved being able to help the students grow, as well as getting to learn from them. I have choreographed numerous dances for UK Department of Theatre and Dance, UK Dance Ensemble, STEPS Performing arts Center, Lakes Community High School dance team, and Carmel Catholic's Orchesis Dance company.
