Have you guys ever found a new dancer you love and had one of those where-have-you-been-all-my-life moments? Well, if you're like me and that dancer is Daniel "Cloud" Campos (which you should be because...have you seen this guy?!), you're a little late to the game. Cloud has been around for a while—appearing in Step Up 3D and some of our favorite commercials, directing music videos, touring with Madonna and dancing on the web series "League of Extraordinary Dancers"—but he hasn't always been in a featured role.
Fortunately for all of us, Cloud's latest project, Today's the Day, puts him front and center. It's a mini-musical featuring Cloud as an intern at a talent agency, trying to build up enough courage to ask his boss to represent him as the talent. His awesome moves remind me of my other favorite hip hopper with old-school grace, Harry Shum Jr.
Cloud's character goes through the same self-doubt that confronts all of us dancers, so if you need a little extra courage just remember: "Whether it goes my way, I just gotta ask anyway."
P.S. Can mini-musicals be a thing now?
