    Chris Grant

    Born in the Bronx NY, before the age of 21 Chris Grant had achieved goals that some could not even imagine.

After an appearance on “Making the Band”, by way of famed choreographer Frank Gatson, Chris was personally chosen by the hottest female performer to date, Beyoncé Knowles, as Assistant Choreographer for her riveting “I AM… SASHA FIERCE” World Tour.

    Chris Grant

    Chris’s dreams were realized when he was hand picked by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, to perform on his much anticipated “THIS IS IT” Tour. Out of thousands who auditioned Chris’s intense personality and talent shone through to the greatest international star of our time. That experience taught him so much and inspired him to keep pursuing his dreams.

    In 2010 he was taken on by Chokolate Records/Management and recorded 3 demo tracks in L.A. 2011 came to a Stellar Start when Chris landed a role as Assistant Choreographer to Frank Gatson as well as a cameo in Jennifer Lopez' much anticipated music video “On the Floor”.

    Chris has already captivated millions of viewers with his singing and dancing on MTV's “Making the Band 4” (Finalist), MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew”, BET’s “106&Park” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”.

    In 2010-2011 he also choreographed and danced in Alex Gaudino FEAT. Kelly Rowland video for summer smash “What a Feeling” and toured the US and UK with Beyonce as choreographer & dancer oh her promotional blitz for her Album “4” working on high profile shows such as Glastonbury, “Good Morning America”, “T in the Park” and the VMAs 2011.

    In October 2011 he took centre stage as Michael Jackson in the long awaited MJ tribute in Cardiff “Michael Forever”. He just recently finished working with Beyonce on her “Revel Show” in Atlantic City, performed at Don King's birthday party and choreographed for Keyshia Cole at the Essence Awards as well as Brandy's Whitney Houston tribute at the Bet Awards ‘12.

    All this time Chris has also been writing and producing songs and is set to release his first electro pop single 'Good Night' which he co-wrote and which was produced by Donnie Scantz. The single and performance based video will be released in fall 2012.

    Love, Peace, and Soul
    Behind the Scenes of America’s Favorite Dance Show Soul Train:
    Classic Moments

    - by Ericka Blount Danois
    foreword by Al Bell, former chairman and owner of Stax Records -

    "In Love, Peace, and Soul, Ericka Blount Danois relives Soul Train’s real meaning and retrieves Cornelius’s true legacy with love, craft, and meticulous research." —Dan Charnas, author of The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip-Hop

    Soul Train was a show created in the land of bell-bottoms, afros, and soul power; a show that became a touchstone of the Baby Boomer generation. It set the stage for dance shows like So You Think You Can Dance and variety shows like the Wayans’ In Living Color. The host and owner of the show, Don Cornelius, one of the coolest cats on television, created a showcase that made formerly no-name artists go platinum. It gave young activist Jesse Jackson a spotlight when he gave a weekly update on the progress of Operation Breadbasket. It provided a place to host beauty pageants with Hal Jackson’s Talented Teens, and it awarded scholarships to students. It was one of the first unapologetically black shows—behind the camera and in front of it.

     In Love, Peace, and Soul, Ericka Blount Danois

    Love, Peace, and Soul: Behind the Scenes of America’s Favorite Dance Show Soul Train: Classic Moments (Backbeat Books, Sept. 2013, $24.99) by Ericka Blount Danois tells the story of the television phenomenon Soul Train, from Cornelius’ humble beginnings with the local version of the show in Chicago, all the way to his shocking suicide in 2012. Music and television connoisseurs will enjoy the history of not just Soul Train, but of Shindig!, Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert, Hullabaloo, American Bandstand, and Graffiti Rock. Fans will delight in the lively images and quirky details that fill these pages, as well as a complete list of episodes. Author Ericka Blount Danois has this to say on her experience watching the show:

    We watched Soul Train through the ’70s where regional dances and the golden years of soul, disco, and funk music were given a national platform. We watched as the alternately sexualized and conservative culture of the ’80s brought back boy bands, new jack swing, and a new culture dubbed hip-hop. And through the ’90s and the 2000s where the show struggled to maintain an identity while it mixed all of these genres together, resulting in a sometimes disjointed, but still entertaining product.

    Love, Peace, and Soul is a celebratory, behind-the-scenes collection of anecdotes, stories, and reflections, from the people who were there, about the host, the show, and the power of black music and dance on television.

    Ericka Blount Danois is an award-winning writer who writes about pop culture, music, sports, and television. She has written for the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, ESPN the Magazine, Sports Illustrated, JazzTimes, Spin, and Vibe magazine, among others. Her website is She lives in Baltimore, MD.

    - 2013 Marks the 10 Year Anniversary of the Red Bull BC One Championship -

    LONDON, 16th July: Red Bull BC One, the world’s leading 1-on-1 B-Boy World Championship, is set to celebrate its 10th anniversary this year by inviting back all eight previous winners for what will be the most competitive and outrageous battle yet. They will go head-to-head with six regional final victors at the much-anticipated all-star final taking place in Seoul, South Korea on November 30th.

     Red Bull BC One Championship

    Celebrating a decade-long commitment to the B-Boy community, the Red Bull BC One organizers have confirmed the attendance of the past champions to mark the milestone event - meaning that fans will be treated to battles from some of the greatest figures in the scene’s history: these include legendary American Ronnie; two-time winner Lilou; Brazil’s highflying Neguin; and reigning champion Mounir of France.

    Current Champion Mounir said of the announcement: "The Red Bull BC One is the highlight of our year, and one of hip-hop’s biggest annual events. This is what we all aim for. I can’t wait to get out to Korea and defend my title. Nobody ever won two times in a row, so I have nothing to lose. I just have to do my best and take my chance even if it won't be easy at all, I know it."

    Red Bull BC One All Star and two-time World Final Champion, Lilou commented ‘We’re making history here. I’m so excited that all of the previous champions will be in same line up. It’s like have all champs of boxing on same ring. This battle will decide the champion of the champions.”

    Seoul will be the culmination of another incredible year in the evolution of the scene. While half of the final spots have now been secured, there are still eight up for grabs. Two will go to wildcards chosen by a panel of Scene Experts committed to travelling the globe seeking out the freshest new talent, and they will be joined by the six winners of the Regional Finals, a battle of the continent’s finest breakers, whose line-ups will be filled by the victors of over 70 fiercely-contended national cyphers currently taking place around the world.

    B-Boying, one of the founding pillars of hip-hop, has a long and storied history, with its practitioners elevating the dance into something of an artform. Communal and competitive, talented B-Boys long to pit their wits against the world’s best, and the Red Bull BC One has become recognized as the scene’s elite solo tournament – drawing in challengers and fans from across the globe.

    Regional Final Dates are as follows: Latin American Finals
    August 4th

    North American Finals
    August 17th

    Middle East Africa Finals
    August 31st

    Western European Finals
    September 14th

    Tap Dancing Inspirational Speaker Releases New Book, “I'm a Black Man Who are You?”

    Boulder, CO (Feb. 8, 2013)…
    When Dr. David Sharp attended Rev. Martin Luther King’s (MLK) funeral, it was not just another day in the life of a young boy growing up in the inner circles of the Southern Christian Leadership Council (SCLC). For David Sharp, steeped in the strong values of the church, the civil rights movement helped African-Americans transform social disillusionment into social activism.

    Sharp’s life experiences captured the deep realities of African-American life in the 60’s and led him to become an engaging, talented artist, who uses dance, music and poetry as a vehicle to transform pain into joy.

    Last year, David moved back to Colorado and published a new book, “I'm a Black Man Who are You?” (Dorrance Pub., 2012) that takes the reader on a heroic journey of love, pain, courage and triumph. He shows us the agony of hatred and champions of love that helped him face his fears, stand his ground, and discover the deep inner well of joy and power as he learned vital life-lessons on the way to manhood. He shows us how to face life no matter what life makes you face, and what it means to remember who you are.

     “I'm a Black Man Who are You?”

    In honor of Black History Month, Sharp and his wife, Jeannine Goode-Allen will present, "Tap into Transformation", on March 1, 2013 at their studio, 4949 N. Broadway, Unit 65, Boulder, CO 80304. A workshop about inspiration from the heart, this evening of transformational song, poetry, and tap dancing will be dedicated to African-American history.

    From July 18-21, Dr. Sharp will be directing a play about St. Hildegard von Bingen, "Feathers on the Breath of God", written by Jeannine Goode-Allen. “Feathers” will be held at Bas Bleu Theater in Ft. Collins.

    With his larger-than-life persona, dance innovator and choreographer of FOX’s #1 hit competition series SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, CHRISTOPHER SCOTT has just received his 1st Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Choreography” for his work on “Misty Blue” and “Velocity.” These numbers in conjunction with Chris’s dance company and web series of the same name LXD, are his first nationally televised performances.

    Founder of the acclaimed The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers (commonly known as The LXD), a web series about two groups of rival dancers: The Alliance of the Dark who are the villains and The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers, the heroes, who discover they have superpowers, referred to as "the Ra" through their dance abilities.

    The entire story takes place over hundreds of years, beginning in the 1920s up to the year 3000 and is written, directed, and produced by the legendary Jon Chu, who was inspired to create the series by Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and "Smooth Criminal" music videos and by the dancers he met while filming Step Up 2: The Streets. Choreographed entirely by Christopher Scott, Harry Shum, Jr. and assistant choreographer Galen Hooks, the show is described as "balletic", "operatic", "high quality" and a "Justice League of dance. League members have a wide variety of specialties including hip-hop, krumping, contemporary, tricking, popping, b-boying, jazz, tap, and ballet. In May 2010, they were the opening act for the Glee Live! tour in addition to being invited to perform at the 2010 TED Conference. LXD’s first theatrical release was presented as a 3D short film, screening before the director's fan cut of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.

    Along with his wit, humor and sexiness, Scott returns as a resident choreographer to the 9th season of SYTYCD! Adding films to his roster of accomplishments, Chris was a fully credited choreographer in this summer’s highly anticipated STEP UP: REVOLUTION. Produced by legendary producer and choreographer Adam Shankman, Scott starred and choreographed all contemporary dance numbers alongside fellow SYTYCD choreographer Travis Wall, STOMP THE YARD’s Chuck Maldonado and FOOTLOOSE choreographer Jamal Sims. STEP UP: REVOLUTION was the 4th installment of the “Step Up” cult phenomenon.

    The Baltimore, Maryland native found his calling for dance after signing up for tap lessons whilst attending the famed Hollywood High School. Since then, dance has been a passion he’s pursued all the way to the 3rd street promenade of Los Angeles. Street performing became a natural outlet and learning tool for Scott as he began to realize the many different styles of hip-hop while being formally trained in tap. After being chosen by Debbie Allen to dance in the 2000 American Music Awards with Mariah Carrey, Scott began truly cultivating his craft into a career. From there he found work creating the infamous dance moves for beloved chipmunk “Alvin” in the hit film ALVIN & THE CHIPMUNKS and in his break out role as “Hair” in STEP UP 2: The STREETS. In addition to SYTYCD, Scott has choreographed for chart topping artists including Brittany Spears, Miley Cyrus in addition to dance pieces for the 82nd Academy Awards & the MTV Teen Choice Awards.

    Using dance as a tool to encourage today’s youth, Scott is an avid supporter and collaborator of Invisible Children, Inc, a non-profit organization founded in Uganda in 2004 to bring awareness to the activities of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) in Central Africa. The group seeks to put an end to the practices of the LRA which include abductions and abuse of children, and forcing them to serve as soldiers. In addition, Scott also supports SYTYCD’s Dizzy Feet Foundation, found to help underprivileged young people realize their dream of becoming professional dancers and to increase access to dance education in the United States.
