The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers?


(post by nerdbastards contributor David Manly)

Imagine a superhero in your mind. What do you imagine him or her doing? Fighting crime? Righting wrongs? Helping the helpless? Saving people’s lives?

What if they achieved all of that through dance?

A trailer for a new webseries has sprung on the internet, created by Jon M. Chu, the director of both Step Up 2: The Streets and the upcoming Step-Up 3D. So, the man obviously has some dance filming experience.

Now, at the risk of loosing all my Nerdbastards credibility, I will admit that the dancing they do in the video is very impressive. And they do try to create some semblance of a story … which deserves credit. I’m intrigued, but suspicious.

What do you think? Would you tune in to a story about superheroes that express themselves through the power of dance?
