Miss 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 has over 15 years of experience within the performing arts community. From creating to stage managing, she does it all as her experiences have greatly shaped her abilities.
She is the recipient of the Audience Choice Award of the 36th Annual Choreographers Showcase which acknowledges exceptional choreographers located in Prince Georges County, Maryland 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.
Upon receiving her Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Morgan State University, she began teaching dance within Prince Georges County Public School System.
