Super Bowl Dancer Speaks Out: They Wanted Us to Work for Free, But We Refused

Super Bowl half-time shows are one of the most watched events of the year, and very big business. So why were performers working for free?! Dancers recently joined together, fought, and finally won payment for their work in the Super Bowl this year.

Taja Riley, dance artist, athlete, and activist who’s performed in several Super Bowls, worked with the likes of Janet Jackson, Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Rihanna, and others, and fought alongside the Super Bowl dancers for this year, explains how manipulative the Super Bowl and the dance industry as a whole can be.
