So You Think You Can Dance On Air Monday 8/7c Aug 21
Four-time Emmy Award-nominated choreographer Travis Wall has long been known as a visual musician. In 2006, he was the runner-up in the search for America’s Favorite Dancer on Season Two of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Season Two.
Wall produced and starred in the cable docu-reality series “All The Right Moves,” based on his dance company, Shaping Sound. After two hugely successful tours, Shaping Sound is back on the road domestically and internationally for its third tour this fall.
His most recent collaboration can be seen on Carrie Underwood’s “Something in the Water” music video, for which he served both as choreographer and dancer.
Wall holds the distinction of being the only choreographer to be asked back three times to choreograph the prestigious Macy’s Stars of Dance segment on “Dancing with the Stars.” He was the assistant choreographer on the “82nd Academy Awards” and has choreographed for the Los Angeles City Ballet Company. He choreographed parts of the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, for which he worked with Florence and the Machine, Chelsea Handler, Eminem and Drake. Wall also choreographed parts of the fourth installment of the popular “Step Up” film franchise (“Step Up: Revolution”).
Dancing since the age of three, Wall got his first professional job at nine, when he became known as the “Dr. Pepper Boy” in a national commercial campaign. He made his Broadway debut in the 2001 revival of “The Music Man,” playing the roles of “Eddie Mason,” “Barney Hix,” and understudying the young male lead, “Winthrop.” He also performed with the American Dance Artists Company. His New York theater choreography debut was the Off-Broadway production of “BARE: A Rock Musical” at New World Stages in New York City.
Wall currently resides in Los Angeles with his partner, Dom Palange
