Reign Selah Webb, 11, sees prima ballerina Misty Copeland and she has one thought. She wants to be just like Misty.
Reign, a model, is well on her way to achieving that dream.
A recent winner at Magnifique Showcase, which operated by former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant Victoria Henley, Reign has been dancing since she was 2. She has taken classes and workshops in ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, hip hop, liturgical and African.
Reign has been a member of The Pointe! Company and Technique Conservatory in Greensboro, N.C, for nine years. She has been part of their company for six years. She is currently a part of POINTE! II, where she has been featured in three of the studio’s productions: “The Fantasy and Adventure of Oz,” “Prideland” and “Let My People Go.” Reign also was a part of the 2017, 2019 and 2022 Pointe! production casts that performed at the National Black Theater Festival in Winston-Salem, NC. She also starred as “Little Ti Moune/Little Girl” in Elon University’s production of “Once On This Island.” Reign also was selected to attend the prestigious Dance Theater of Harlem Summer Intensive for the summer of 2022.
In addition to dancing, Reign has held many state and local pageant titles. She has also competed nationally. Reign Selah is the current reigning East Coast USA Christmas Spectacular Overall Most Beautiful.
As a model, she had the opportunity to walk in New York, Winston-Salem and Charlotte Seen Fashion Weeks for multiple designers. She also has been featured in an exclusive video and Teen Fashion Parade magazine wearing the designs of Melanie Caballero. She was prepared for these opportunities through her coaching with Executive Reign.
As a volunteer, Reign was recently nationally recognized and awarded the Gold Presidential Volunteer Service Award for her community service activities.
In addition to dancing, modeling and volunteering, Reign dreams of being a preschool teacher.
