When performer Todrick Hall called choreographer Brian Friedman asking him to create a dance to Hall's latest song, "Dem Beats," we expected something incredible to come of it.

And that it did.


In a video uploaded to Friedman's YouTube channel, Friedman gets a call from Hall, who is backstage at his concert. Hall says that he loves his new song but every time he performs it, he thinks about Friedman and his choreography skills.

"So, if it's not too much to ask, would you mind making a video for me and teaching it in your class?" Hall asks Friedman.

Friedman agrees, telling Hall that he'll "be back shortly." And with that, the video cuts to one of Friedman's dance classes, where dancers have learned some killer moves to Hall's high-energy track, which also features RuPaul

Friedman performs first, and then he's followed by dancers such as Maddie Ziegler, Charlize Glass, Jade Chynoweth, Kaycee Rice, Sean Lew, Blake McGrath, and more. The energy in the space makes the video an exciting one to watch, and the YouTube community seems to agree.

"Hands down, Brian is THE BEST choreographer for these kinds of upbeat songs," one viewer comments. "His moves are always elongated and sexy, full of grace and energy.  I absolutely love them! Always entertaining."

"You out did [sic] yourself Brian. It's like no one wanted to miss this class," another writes.

Friedman has received numerous accolades for his past work: a World of Dance Award in 2016 for Male Choreographer of the Year; an Industry Voice Awards in 2011 for Best Choreography in a Music Video for Britney Spears "Till the World Ends"; the Choreographers Carnival London Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006; and more. He's worked on films such as Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and You Got Served, as well as with artists like Michael Jackson, Justin Bieber, Beyoncé, and Rihanna, among others.
