A dance of Josephine Baker from the movie "Princess TamTam" (1935! that's why the sound is not that great ; plus this is where the name of the underwear company is from!).
In this extract, she has been introduced to an important prince as a princess herself and is supposed to act like a noblewoman (that she isn't really). But her love for music, especially drums of her country in the movie (an African one but I don't remember exactly which one) is so strong that she doesn't resist and goes dancing and embarrasses the men who took her to the court for finally having a standing ovation.
I hope it will show you how Beyonce took her inspiration from Josephine's dances and even grimaces but unfortunately I only have pictures of Josephine's grimaces. If someone has any extract where she grimaced...
The extract is in French (my mothertongue language).
