6 Fierce Women Workin’ It at Beyography

6 Fierce Women Workin’ It at Beyography

You may remember Beyography – the Beyonce dance class brought to Hamilton by Erika McMeekin from The Academy of All Things Awesome. Now, Erika is bringing Biebography to the city so we can groove to JT’s Sorry! (Unfortunately, the Biebs won’t be there in person to watch us dance. What’s even sadder is the first class on January 26 is already SOLD OUT.  BUT there are still available spaces to reserve here for February 2).

We’re throwing it back to the time we thought it would be fun to ask the lovely ladies some quick questions before Beyography – thanks to the good sports for posing for photos!
