Paloma Zabala

Paloma has trained in ballet for over 15 years, starting at the age of 5 at Infinity Ballet Conservatory. She started training seriously at 11 years old at International Ballet Academy and quickly dedicated herself to dancing. She has performed many classical pieces for performances and competitions, including the Youth America Grand Prix. At 15 years old she started getting coached in a smaller class environment, allowing her inspiration for dance to grow, and giving her the opportunity to work with coaches such as Hong Yang, Ileana Lastres Capote, Adrián Masvidal, Steven James Rodriguez Velvez, Ronnie West, and ShaLeigh Comerford. Recently, Paloma has been exposed to different forms of dancing and has found a love for contemporary movement. She has been dancing with ShaLeigh Dance Works since the summer of 2018.
