When dancer Paige Fraser, FCLC ’12, was diagnosed with scoliosis at age 12, she was terrified she would lose the “passion, expression, and freedom” that dance gave her.
In a behind-the-scenes video of a new commercial by Intel, Fraser shares the story of how she overcame her physical struggles and became a professional dancer. After graduating from the Ailey/Fordham BFA in dance program, Fraser spent two years dancing around the world with Ailey II, the highly selective junior company of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. She is a founding member of Visceral Dance Chicago and is currently in her third season with the company.
