Paige Phillips is a choreographer and interdisciplinary artist based in Philadelphia.

Phillips' work has been supported through grants from The Embassy of the United States in Nepal and Singapore, Ohio Arts Council, Greater Columbus Arts Council and The Ohio State University. She has performed for choreographers and visual artists throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia such as Cyrus Khmabatta, Yael Bartana, Josiah McElheny, Owen David, and Cai Guo-Qiang. She holds an MFA in Dance from The Ohio State University with an interdisciplinary specialization in Folklore, a BFA in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts, and diploma from Interlochen Arts Academy.
