I discovered the Legion of Extraordinary Dancers or LXD at TED.
It is very inspiring how people who have a passion about something, can be so good at what they do, and talk about it with such enthusiasm and excitement. Incredibly impressive. Plus some of the moves are out of this world. And yes they are dancing to classical pieces, how can you not love it?!
To my surprise LXD were performing at the Oscars. I had some controversial conversations with friends about hip/hop-interpretive dancers and how it is inappropriate for the Academy Awards, but the performance was so great that after the first minute and a half everyone was just blown away.
Can’t wait for the movie they are promoting. It’s going to be pretty great.
Moral of the story– everything that is done with passion and enthusiasm turns out for the best.
