‘Syncopated Ladies’ is a female tap dance band from Los Angeles. This band was formed by critically acclaimed tap dancer and choreographer, Chloe Arnold. ‘Syncopated Ladies’ was the winner of Dance Crew Battles on the show So You Think You Can Dance Season 11. They are best known for their breathtaking routine to Beyonce’s “Formation”. This time we feast our eyes on their wonderful tribute to Prince. Their tap is so much in sync with the music, it made my heart burst with joy. Please, enjoy and SHARE.
The founder of “Syncopated Ladies,” Chloe Arnold began her professional career at age 10 in Washington, DC. She began dancing at age 6, and booked her first modeling job for PM magazine at age 4. At 12, Chloe starred in a documentary for Cable Television called “Chloe’s World”.
