The millions of BeyHive members who have been lucky enough to enjoy Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour are well aware of the unmatched showmanship that happens at every show.

The global tour, which supports the singer’s seventh studio album Renaissance, kicked off on May 10 in Sweden and ran through Europe until hitting the U.S. in July. Upon Renaissance‘s release, Beyoncé dedicated the LP to her late Uncle Johnny, who was the nephew of Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles.

As a Black Queer male, he introduced a young Beyoncé to different types of music and fashion she may not have been exposed to growing up in Houston. With the incorporation of house music, sound snippets of calls from iconic members of the LGBTQ community and choreography laced with “voguing,” the Grammy-nominated album and tour unlocked a new level of creativity for Queen Bey.

The chromatic theme of the Renaissance World Tour is enhanced by the creative team backing the artist on stage, especially her dancers. She brought in award-winning instructor Fatima Robinson as her director of choreography and Chris Grant as her lead choreographer. While the presence of her long-term dance captain Ashley Everett was missed, Beyoncé seized the moment to put some new faces on the stage.

Amari Marshall stepped into the role as co-captain with Hannah Douglas and owned it. The curvy dancer captivated audiences, giving brown skin and body on the stage. She is also praised as the “auntie” who directs Blue Ivy on the stage during her appearances.

Aliya Janell is responsible for the viral stiletto-clad dance videos from her Queens N’ Lettos classes that went viral online during the pandemic.

New addition Rob Bynes takes center stage as the blonde standout during the beehive favorite “Energy.”

Beyoncé’s tribute to LGBTQ culture continued with the addition of “the Dolls,” performers specializing in the famous “voguing” and ballroom dance style.

Honey Balenciaga is a member of the House of Balenciaga, known for participating in season two of HBO’s Legendary.

At the start of her Renaissance Tour, Beyoncé revealed the total creative support credits via her website.
