photo Dave Scott

Straight from The PULSE On Tour, Dave Scott danced his way "Straight Outta Compton" and right into Hollywood and a multi-faceted career in dance, choreography, and artist development spanning music, film, television, and commercials. Dave has filmed several projects for both film and television including So You think You Can Dance on FOX, and Bravo’s Step It Up & Dance, and Step Up 3D. 

No stranger to film successes, Dave’s Disney movie, Step Up 2 the Streets grossed over $118 million worldwide. His previous project, Sony Pictures’ Stomp the Yard, was #1 two weeks in a row at the box office and grossed over $136 million worldwide. You Got Served (2004) won him the 10th Annual Choreography Award for Best Choreography in a feature film, and featured the artist B2K. 

Scott has molded and shaped the images and careers of many other hot artists, including Tyrese, Marques Houston and the musically renowned Brian McKnight, allowing them to reach new and unexpected heights in their careers. Scott has lent his talents to several commercial campaigns including Chevy and Pantene, the FOX TV success Bones, and choreographed dance sequences in 2004’s Coach Carter starring Samuel Jackson. I always want to impress and be top notch. 

"I try to take myself outside of myself, try to become the audience and think about what’s going to make people go ‘oooohhh’, try to give them that ‘wow’ factor."
