Chu (STEP UP 3D), this original series chronicles the journey of seemingly ordinary people who discover they have extraordinary powers and must choose their place in an epic war between good and evil. There's high school outcast Trevor Drift (Bboy Luigi) uncovering his family's dangerous secret, fallen soldier Sp3cimen (Madd Chadd) running from his dark past, and unassuming hero Elliot Hoo (Glee's Harry Shum Jr.) haunted by newly discovered supernatural gifts. All of whom are called to fulfill their destiny and join The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers. Each chapter showcases the unbelievable flips, spins and twists that have already made The LXD a pop cultural phenomenon and one of the most highly anticipated series ever launched. Join the adventure, uncover the mystery. The next evolution of dance starts now. Written by LXD

Legion of Extrordinary Choreographers
16 August 2011 | by alissamdubeSee all my reviews

Cheesy? Sure. But holy crap, the choreography in this show is an artistic delight. Seriously talented dancers too. If you're one of those people that watches SYTYCD but fast-forwards through everything that's not dancing, this show is for you. If you're a fan of hip-hop, break dancing and pop'n'lock, you are going to explode at the skill in this movie. I hope Season 3 showcases some different dance styles (I would have liked to see the Dark Nurse character do some more ballet besides the tiny bit of point she did in the hallways) and they always seem to work popping in to every style, but it's still really excellent. The tap dancing and stepping was a nice change of pace from the hip-hop styles, but more variety of dance would be even better. Anyway, I'm not one to let cheese get in the way of my enjoyment, so you may not like it if you don't like a bit of extra sharp cheddar. :P Think Disney-movie cheese. I would also like to see some more plot explication. I do love the dancing, but a little bit more story would be helpful to quicken the pace of the show. It seems like the story is secondary to the choreography-- if that was the intention, great. If not, more plot would help balance it better.

Think Newsies meets Heroes meets X-men meets Lost.
