TV Tap Dancers who Wowed Beyoncé are Coming to Dubai!
They rocked US audiences on So You Think You Can Dance, and now Chloé Arnold’s Syncopated Ladies are hosting a boot camp in Dubai!
The six-strong tap dance ensemble wowed Queen Bey with their viral video hit Beyoncé Tap Salute “They killed it!,” she exclaimed – leading to an appearance on Season 11 of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance.
Comprising Maud Arnold, Sarah Reich, Anissa Lee, Pamela Yasutake, Melissa Tannús and Melinda Sullivan, the group was formed by choreographer and dancer Chloé Arnold. Discovered at an early age by legendary Fame choreographer Debbie Allen, Chloé, from Washington, DC, has since performed in 27 countries, worked with stars including Beyoncé and appeared on national TV shows including Dancing with the Stars, America’s Got Talent and Boardwalk Empire.
On Saturday 23 May, the wildly popular performers will host a fun-filled session which is suitable for all. Beginners, intermediate and advanced-level dancers are invited to spend six hours learning from the Syncopated Ladies themselves and hangin’ with some of the fiercest women in the business. Blending hip-hop, Afro funk, salsa and rhythm and improvisation, it’s sure to be plenty of fun.
It’s been organised by Dubai Desert Dance, a nonprofit organisation with more than 500 students which aims to celebrate the art form in a non-competitive environment.
