Career[edit]

Scott has appeared as an actor and dancer in several movies including his most notable role as "Hair" in Step Up 2 The Streets, Step Up 3D, Step Up Revolution, and Step Up All In.[1] He has also garnered a number of notable credits as a choreographer including the 82nd Academy Awards,[2] Lemonade Mouth, Teen Beach Movie,[3][4][5] and So You Think You Can Dance, season 8.[6]

In 2009, Scott teamed up with Harry Shum, Jr. to choreograph the super hero inspired web series The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers, aka The LXD.[7] An experiment in storytelling through dance, the series is the brainchild of writer/director/producer Jon Chu.[8][9]

Scott also appears in the LXD as "Copeland" a dancer with extraordinary tap dancing skills who is haunted by a painful past. In his quest to overcome and eradicate his personal demons, "Copeland" begrudgingly joins the LXD.

In 2011, Scott choreographed the So You Think You Can Dance season 7 Top 11 and All-Stars finale group dance and has made frequent appearances in season 8 of the show.[10]

In 2012, Scott received Emmy nominations for two routines, "Misty Blue" - Dorothy Moore and "Velocity" - Nathan Lanier, which aired on Season 8 of SYTYCD season 8.[11] "Misty Blue" is a hip-hop duet performed by Sasha Mallory and Stephen "tWitch" Boss, and "Velocity" is a Hip Hop/Contemporary routine performed by SYTYCD Top 10 Guys.
