Meet the 30 Dancers from Beyonce’s #Formation

Avatar • Feb 15, 2016

We’ve had over a week to recover from Beyonce’s spontaneous pro-black track and music video to her new single “Formation,” which was followed by a very pro-black Super Bowl performance. A total of 30 black woman dancers shared the Super Bowl half time stage with Beyonce as well as in her Formation video. Instantly, we wanted to know who these talented women were so we took our search to the ‘gram and found them.

Since I was 12 I have been a Beyonce fan! I would go to the tours and buy her album and tour DVD! I would watch the DVD over and over and over again singing and learning all of the dance moves with my moms stilettos that I could barely walk in. It has been a dream to finally meet her and nevertheless dance for the Queen herself! She has been my inspiration/motivation and epitome of a strong black woman that has her own mind and does NOT let what others say lead her astray from her dreams and goals. Last night was nothing but amazing and a dream come true! Thank you to everybody that believed in me and for the ones who did not believe in me because you motivated me to be the strong person I am today! #AggiePride #Beyonce #QueenBey #Love #Live #Laugh #BeYou #BeYou #DreamsREALLYcomeTrue #Determined #Focus #GrindHard #Dance #SuperBowl50 #iCantBelieveiReallyPerformedAtTheSuperBowl #MakingHistory #2016 #ThisIsOnlyTheBeginning #BlackIsBeautiful #NaturalHair #NaturallyMe #HBCUgrad #NCAT #AtlantaDancer #DidiReallyPerformAtTheSuperBowl #MommyDidYouSeeMe #JerseyBred #ImStillSmiling #iSlay #Formation #EducatedDancer

I wished that they wore some long pants or something…even if its tight fit.…
It’s just sexualizing the movement in my opinion. .…
but other than, im really happy they chose gourgeous, chocolate, and fit ladies.

Long pants for what ? They have on stockings if you get sexualized images from the performance that speaks to your own mind

I wonder are all ‘black power’ gestures going to turn to round table discussions that lead to actual action & solutions to the problems that continue to plague the community. Alongside police brutality, discuss young women having multiple children without financial means, children who can’t read on their level, young men who don’t graduate from high school or work. Fists in the air up for that.

It’s entertainment. You and I need to be at the “round table” community discussions with local government community leaders. Their just dancer for a performance. However, one never knows their political activity in their respective local communities. Therefore, the assumptions of their political activities are unjustified.
