Ebony Williams grew up in Dorchester, became a jazz and tap dancer and has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in pop.

She's perhaps best known for her role in the "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" hit music video.

Williams was one of two dancers accompanying Beyoncé — matching her move for move — in the 2009 video.

If you've seen the video, you know that Williams can move.

The Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet will be making their Boston debut at the Citi Shubert Theatre Friday through Sunday as part of the Celebrity Series of Boston.

Guest

Ebony Williams, member of the Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet.

The Boston Globe: Cedar Lake Dancer Ebony Williams Is Ready For A New Journey

  • "When dancer and Dorchester native Ebony Williams arrives for the Boston debut of Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, it will be a decidedly bittersweet event. While she’s excited to return to her hometown with the company that has been her artistic base for the last 10 years, the troupe’s Celebrity Series performances at the Citi Shubert Theatre will be among its last. After a final June concert series in Brooklyn, N.Y., the company is disbanding."

This segment aired on May 14, 2015.
