Beyoncé knows how to create a weekend to remember. On Saturday, she made a surprise appearance backstage at an Alvin Ailey performance in L.A., where she, daughter Blue Ivy, and mother Tina Knowles Lawson had just caught a matinee performance. They were joined by Knowles Lawson’s mentorship group, Tina’s Angels, Joinfo.com reports with reference to Vanity Fair.
“Backstage after the Alvin Ailey dancers performance it was magnificent,” Knowles Lawson captioned an Instagram photo. “With my beautiful Tina’s Angels and with a few of the mentors. My very gracious daughter who met the girls and spent some time with them and made their day!”
A member of Knowles Lawson’s group also documented the moment of surprise on video. As the dance group relaxed backstage, Beyoncé emerged on the scene. One dancer exclaimed, “Beyoncé!,” as the rest of the dancers turned around to see the queen in their presence. “Ya’ll were incredible,” she said as she began to shake their hands.

Tina’s Angels, the dancers, and Bey all posed for a photo op, too. “So much talent in one photo,” said the caption.
