Choreographer Dave Scott - Stomp the Yard - Best Hip Hop Movie at 2007 BET Hip Hop Awards

Beverly Hills, California   October 21, 2007   Entertainment News
(PRLEAP.COM) This coming of age story received critical acclaim and wowed audiences nationwide. With its impressive 3 straight weeks at #1 box office sales, the movie is single-handedly responsible for the renewed interest of stepping as a dance form and its history.

Much has been said of Dave’s choreography in the film, and was referred to in one article as “ Steppin’ meets The Matrix” . “the unique combination of athleticism and precision while maintaining the integrity of the dance form was a challenge.” says Dave “I wanted to be sure that I was not taking anything away from traditional steppin’, but instead evolving it into its next progression by adding hip hop symmetry”

Many of the actors on the film discussed how challenging and physically demanding the dance sequences were. “ I gave them a workout, that's for sure” jokes Dave.

Dave later brought his unique style and a step routine to a contestant pair on the Fox hit show “So You Think You Can Dance” and the routine was an audience and judge favorite, and it marked the first time stepping had ever been performed on the show.


Dave Scott is represented by talent agents MSA who add; "We're so proud of Dave and his work on "Stomp the Yard," and we congratulate Screen Gems and the entire cast and crew on the success of their film"

Personal; unlike most dancers who are short in stature; Dave is 6’4”, and originally went to college on a basketball scholarship with an eye on going pro. His height is what makes his dancing unique – as it requires him to move much faster than traditionally smaller hip hop dancers and choreographers. Dave was born in Compton, California, and when he isn’t traveling still resides in LA.
