Taylor Swift’s Reputation Tour began Tuesday night in Glendale, Arizona. We hear 60,000 fans turned out to watch the “Look What You Made me Do” singer jam out. And backing her up is the talented crew of Reputation tour dancers.
Last month Swift introduced her fans to the 16 Reputation tour dancers via her Instagram. She captioned the photo, “Say hi to the reputation Stadium Tour dancers!! Been spending my days rehearsing with these overwhelmingly talented people. 28 DAYS TIL GLENDALE AZ.”
You’d be hard-pressed to find a sexier, more talented bunch of performers, which has led us to do a bit of social media stalking on our own. We dug into the individual Instagram accounts of the 16 Reputation tour dancers, and present them for you here.
