LXD [The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers] & Madd Chadd

Jon M. Chu, the director of Step Up 2 has been doing this project called The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers aka LXD, where he creates the “most elite dance crew ever assembled”. He gathers great dancers of all types of styles: breaking, popping, botting, ballet etc. and combines them into one crew, LXD. He has made 2 teaser trailers, leading to this epic online dance adventure that will be released in the near future.

Trailer 1:

Trailer 2:

Recently, they performed on So You Think You Can Dance:

These guys are reaaally legit, and totally inspiring. I just showed DWu the second trailer and he was impressed by this popper/botter named Madd Chadd, one of THE BEST robotters I’ve seen in my LIFE! Go back to trailer 2 and look at 0:26 and you’ll see exactly what I mean. At first glance, DWu thought it was completely CGI and he didn’t believe me when I said it was a real person, Madd Chadd. He’s been a huge inspiration towards my botting skills ever since I first saw him a while back.

    Thank goodness for these tissues lying about near my keyboard; I think I soiled my pantaloons.
