JaQuel Knight has quickly become one of the top requested choreographers in the business today! Known as the man behind Beyoncé Knowles’ “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It),” which won him his first MTV Moonman at the 2009 Video Music Awards for Best Choreography. The video also went on to win that year’s MTV Video of the Year and BET’s Video of the Year Award in 2009. He received recognition for the choreography, thought to be “genius and innovative.” Then went on to choreograph Beyoncé second single, “Diva,” from the “I Am…Sasha Fierce” album, as well as her 2009 - 2010 “I Am…” World Tour.
Recognizing his work with Beyoncé, JaQuel was recruited by artistic director Jamie King, who has worked with Madonna, The Spice Girls, and Celine Dion to name a few, to contribute choreography for Britney Spears’ 2009 “Circus” World Tour.
JaQuel’s most recent credits include working as the associate choreographer for hot feature film musical, Burlesque, starring Christina Aguilera and Cher.
