So, the man responsible for the choreography of Beyonce’s forthcoming video for “Who Run the World (Girls)” is not a Philly native, but we will claim him anyway. Jeffrey Page was a fixture in the Philly dance world in the late 1990’s as a student at The University of the Arts. This man is an African Dance dynamo, seriously.
Jeffrey was a resident choreographer for the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance,” served as the choreographer for Beyonce’s BDay World Tour in 2007, co-choreographed the opening number for the 2005 BET Awards, and was recently featured in the Broadway show “Fela!” This brother’s got it goin’ on in a major way.
Jeffrey Page received the first honorable mention in my new feature series “Name ‘Em and Claim ‘Em,” which highlighs people from (educated in, worked in or lived in) Philadelphia. Check out the preview video of Beyonce’s latest single below, and to check out other choreography from our featured artist, please visit TiffanyBaconOnline.com.
Jeffrey Page, we name you, claim you and salute you!
