ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Celebrity choreographer Anthony Burrell is in Atlanta this weekend, teaching his moves to some of the region's best young dancers.

Gotta Dance Atlanta, a studio in northwest Atlanta, hand-selected participants to take part in a residency program featuring choreographer Anthony Burrell.

Burrell and some of his students were featured Friday on Better Mornings Atlanta.

"Because I have the credentials that I have, they are so willing to try anything for me and to impress, which always a great thing," said Burrell. "It's healthy competition in a dance studio with these guys. Of course, I'm going to throw anything at them because I love to see just natural talent."

Burrell is a Philadelphia native who is featured in more than 30 music videos and has performed on more than 100 television and award shows. He has worked with singer Beyonce for years and recently choreographed two videos, Mine and Ghost, for her self-titled visual album. He also coached and warmed-up Beyonce for her Super Bowl XLVII halftime show performance. Also, he has participated as either a dancer, dance captain or choreographer for numerous tours including Beyonce's B-day tour, Katy Perry's California Dreams Tour and Rihanna's A Girl Like Me Tour.

Burrell's classes run through Sunday at Gotta Dance Atlanta studio on Ellsworth Industrial Drive in northwest Atlanta through Sunday, March 2.
