Paula took her first aerial hoop class eight months before her 40th birthday. "It's never too late to start!"
She grew up in St. Andrews, Manitoba and like most kids tried or took part in many sports/activities. Although dancing was one of her favorites, her focus in her tween years was gymnastics. However, after competing for a couple of years and being an assistant coach for one, she found herself leaving the mats to go back to the stage.
She danced her way through the rest of her school years and in 1998 became a teacher at the Royal Dance Conservatory where she taught for 14 years.
"Over the past ten years, I've tried the gym, I've tried running and I've gone through many workout videos, none of it has kept my interest as much as aerial fitness. You'll be amazed at what your body can do. I'm stronger now then I have ever been."
