She began her career as a passionate teaching artist in1997 throughout Chicago and the Los Angeles area. Her curriculum developed alongside Kuumba Lynx, Urban Gateways and After School Matters is rooted in Hip Hop’s original philosophy of spreading peace, love, unity, and respect through music and movement. In addition to teaching Hip Hop dance styles, Lady Sol has a long standing passion for Afro-Caribbean culture and began fusing Jamaican Reggae/Dancehall styles into her dance curriculum in 2003.  

In 2013, Lady Sol pioneered the start of public Reggae/Dancehall classes in Chicago dance studios and has staged choreography at various local culture festivals and concerts. In 2014, she partnered with Jessica Phoenix, Founder of FIYAH Dancehall Theater NYC and Co-Founded FIYAH Fit, a dance fitness experience that celebrates and empowers women. “I find joy in sharing culture that spreads happiness and promotes healthy living,” says a proud Lady Sol. “I intend to continue preserving culture by promoting, teaching, and presenting it both locally and globally.”
