Kellye Nichelle Worth Hall, MD is not your average physician. As a child, she took tap and ballet classes, but hip hop dance always held the top spot in her heart. Growing up in a rural area of North Carolina, she did not have access to hip hop dance classes, so she and a group of friends imitated the moves of popular R&B groups like TLC to create their own choreography.

In high school, Dr. Hall led her marching band as drum major before becoming the first female drum major to lead the Blue and Gold Marching Machine of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. During her senior year at A&T, she was initiated into the Alpha Mu Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. A Diamond Life member of the sorority, she is a current member of the Charlotte Alumnae Chapter.

Dr. Hall has earned a stellar reputation as an accomplished emergency physician, but she never lost her love for dance. In 2018, that passion instantly reignited upon taking her first hip hop dance class at NC Dance District. When the studio’s founder decided to pursue other projects, Dr. Hall felt called to lead the studio. With mentoring and guidance, she expanded her calling to help people physically by also assisting them spiritually and emotionally through the art of dance. Giving God all praises, she continues the work of the NC Dance District to help people live out their dreams and desires.

A best-selling author, Dr. Hall was one of the featured writers in the first edition of the HBCU Experience Anthology: The North Carolina A&T State University Edition. She is currently in the process of publishing her first memoir, with plans to write future books. She enjoys mentoring young adults, particularly young Black women with aspirations to become physicians. We are extremely proud of Dr. Hall’s incredible achievements and wish her much success with all of her endeavors. To learn more about NC Dance District, visit the website at
