"ART IS NOT WHAT YOU SEE, BUT WHAT YOU MAKE OTHERS SEE."
Alexis "Lola" North began her dance career at Marcellus Dance Studio where she learned the foundation of ballet, modern, jazz, African, and hip hop. She later attended Suitland High School for the Visual and Performing Arts which directly influenced her love for choreographing and directing.
She is the recipient of the Audience Choice Award of the 36th Annual Choreographers Showcase which acknowledges exceptional choreographers located in Prince Georges County for her original work entitled, "Strange Fruit; Matthew 20:16." This piece has been performed with alternating cast at venues such as: The Howard Theater, University of Maryland, Virginia State University, and Show Place Arena. She performed a solo with the talented Jazzo for Black History Month 2020 at the Central Intelligence Headquarters. Spreading knowledge and awareness through the arts is her objective.
Currently, Miss North is actively apart of the dance community in Washington D.C. and Prince Georges County area with a passion for choreographing and empowering individuals through the performing arts. Upon receiving her Bachelors of Science from Morgan State University, she began teaching dance within Prince Georges County Public School System. From here, she began teaching locally which allowed her to develop and maintain positive relationships with other local entertainment professionals. This has allowed her to become the expert at developing dynamic performers.
"Shine your light. Someone needs it."
