A gorgeous collection of multi-ethnic dancers who jumped to the rhythmic pop, rap and hip-hop music at the beginning and during breaks between comedy skits on the irreverent, satirical comedy program IN LIVING COLOR/FOX/1990-94 starring Keenen Ivory Wayans.

The Fly Girl dancers included Carrie Ann Inaba, Cari French, Josie Harris, Carla Garrido, Laurie-Ann Gibson, Diedra Lang, Jennifer Lopez, Lisa Thompson Lisa Marie Todd, Michelle Whitney-Morrison and Masako Willis.

Carla Earle, Rosie Perez, Arthur Rainer choreographed these beautiful, semi-clad dancers (who often dressed in fish net stocking and hot pants). Rosie Perez defined the Fly Girls as “Someone who’s got what’s going on, someone who’s hip.”
