Up and coming actress Taylour Paige sat down with Concrete Loop to chat about her starring role as Ahsha Hayes on VH1′s new scripted series, ‘Hit The Floor.’
The trained dancer also spoke about working with veteran choreographer Debbie Allen, how she keeps in shape, inspirations and a whole lot more!
We have a feeling we will be hearing more from this rising star in the near future. Check out our exclusive video above.
WORKING WITH DEBBIE ALLEN:
I started dancing with Debbie Allen at 10 and I’ve been dancing with her ever since. She’s like a mom to me. She took me all over the world. I’ve been to Italy with her, I danced at the Kennedy center with her and I did all of her musicals. She really exposed me to everything at her dance studio… She [says] the best entertainers know everything..
FAVORITE INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE:
I had a lot of emotional scenes this season, so to stay in the mode.. I’d watch this Viola Davis acceptance speech and she says, “What is life but a dream, you can’t trade your dream for another dream.” And at the end she says, “dream big and dream fierce.” It’s so simple.
HOW SHE KEEPS IN SHAPE:
When in doubt, do a booty pop. Do a few a day and you’ll be good. [laughs]
WHAT’S NEXT FOR HER:
I’m open to everything, I just want to tell stories and inspire people. The sky is the limit.
‘Hit The Floor’ premieres Monday, May 27th on VH1. You can also view the first episode right now on their official website!
