Illinois jump rope team to appear on Beyonce video
A jump rope team from Illinois will be featured in one of Beyonce’s upcoming music videos.
Crews filmed the Jumpin’ All Stars from Brighton, Michigan and the Pink Panthers from Homewood, Illinois at a Chicago gym the last weekend in April 2012.
The two teams have each won national awards and are part of Team USA. Team USA will compete in Washington, DC and in Tampa, Florida in 2012.
The jump rope teams will be part of the video for Beyonce’s “Move Your Body” song. The video will be posted on YouTube to raise awareness of health and fitness as part of LetsMove.org.
