I am so excited that Travis Wall and his Shaping Sound Dance Company are performing their new show, After the Curtain, this week, at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, in Sarasota, FL. The cast includes past SYTYCD Winners Lex Ishimoto, Gaby Diaz, and Nick Lazzarini.
I’ve been a fan of Travis Wall’s choreography, ever since he first appeared on So You Think You Can Dance. He is so young, yet he is already a two-time Emmy Award Winner, for his choreography work.
I danced Ballet for many years, and while I had taken classes in Jazz and Modern Dance, back in the day, there was nothing called “Contemporary,” as a dance style. I first saw / learned about Contemporary Dance, while watching every season of SYTYCD.
I have never seen such beautiful movements and story lines, as Travis Wall and his contemporary Choreographers, create. The choreography that Travis creates, makes me really feel emotions like love, sadness, or heartbreak, and his choreography has brought me to tears, more than one time.
If you can’t make it to the Shaping Sound live show this week, here is a wonderful video of Travis Wall and the Shaping Sound Dance Company.
