Beyoncé paid respect to the marching band culture at Black colleges during her historic and electrifying Coachella performance in April. With homecoming season quickly approaching, EBONY decided to highlight some of our favorite HBCU dance team and majorette routines that blend pop culture, music, glittery costumes for showstopping performances.

If you can’t wait for homecoming to roll around or you missed out on the Black collegiate experience, the Bring it Live Tour, a hip-hop majorette competition, has great performances for everyone to enjoy.

Check out this year’s tour stops on, and be sure to peruse our list of outstanding performances.
