In recognition of her 20 plus years in dance and choreography, Paula was honored in 2008 with a Lifetime Achievement award from the prestigious Tremaine Dance Company, as the "Tremaine Entertainer of the Year 2008" and was presented the Always Next, Forever Now Icon Award, reserved only for the most beloved of pop icons in 2010.
