Dance. Just Dance

JaQuel Knight has been doing choreography for Beyoncé for years. Knight landed his breakthrough gig at 18 years old for Beyoncé's iconic video "Single Ladies". His most recent collaboration with Beyoncé at Coachella left people speechless. INSIDER's Manny Ocbazghi met up with JaQuel at the Monsters Dance Convention in New Jersey, where he gave him a personal dance lesson and attempted to make him a better dancer. Check out more Voices of Color content here: Special Thanks to JaQuel Knight: Following is a transcript of the video: Manny: That's JaQuel Knight. He's a dancer and choreographer. He's also the creative mind behind many of Beyoncé's iconic performances. I caught up with JaQuel at the Monsters Dance Convention in New Jersey. He was teaching choreography to literally hundreds of kids. I quickly got a sense of the talent and work ethic that made him successful. Manny: The story goes that you were teaching Beyoncé choreography at age 18. JaQuel: Yeah. Manny: How did you get to meet Beyoncé? How did that whole thing start? JaQuel: So I moved to LA right outta high school. And literally maybe a year into LA, I was at this audition for Michelle Williams with Frank Gatson. He enjoyed me, my freestyle, he was like, "Hey I got this Beyoncé record, can you come to New York tonight?" "When you get here if she likes you you'll stay, if not we'll get you back on a plane to LA." Manny: What was your reaction? JaQuel: Yeah, hell yeah, get me on that goddamn flight. Manny: JaQuel went on to choreograph stars like J. Lo, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and more. Manny: Who was your favorite to work with? JaQuel: They're all very special, ya know. Manny: That's like a parent saying all of their kids are special, though. JaQuel: 'Cause these are all stars. All your kids aren't superstars. Manny: Most recently, JaQuel collaborated with Beyoncé for her famous Beychella performance. The choreography incorporated homecoming moves made popular by historically black colleges and universities It was a smash hit. After the convention, JaQuel agreed to give me a personal dance lesson. Um, just watch for yourself. Manny: JaQuel, I want to know how to dance like Beyoncé. This is me right here. This is where I wanna grow from. Manny: How was that? JaQuel: That was good. Manny: It was good? JaQuel: That was really good actually. Manny: You don't have to lie. JaQuel: Okay, it was okay. Manny: Okay, it's painfully obvious that I'm not gonna be dancing like Beyoncé any time soon, but I did have one more question for JaQuel. Manny: Will you say "hi" to Beyoncé for me? JaQuel: Negative! Hah! ------------------------------------------------------ #Beyoncé #Dance #INSIDER INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know.
