Travis Wall wins 2nd Emmy Award for 'Outstanding Choreography'

Travis Wall won the 2017 Emmy Award for 'Outstanding Choreography' for his groundbreaking work on the popular FOX television show So You Think You Can Dance. He was nominated this year for routines 'Send in the Clowns,' 'The Mirror' and 'She Used to Be Mine.' Wall's dance company, SHAPING SOUND, is coming to Wharton Center on Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.

Travis Wall has become a leading presence in the world of commerical dance. SHAPING SOUND launched their second show After the Curtain, following the spell-binding Dance Reimagined, which toured North American for four years. After the Curtain continues to get rave reviews, including the Los Angeles Times, which recently wrote: "Like a good film scene, this dance spectacle lingers after the curtain falls." And TheaterJones Dalls, who called the show "Overwhelmingly beautiful," adding: "Seeing the show once isn't enough to fully register the vastness of the production."

According to Triangle Magazine, "After the Curtain is the pinnacle of contemporary dance!" Conceived and choreographed by Travis Wall, the show tells the story of a man fighting to find his creative voice after the death of his one true love. Heart-wrenching, breath-taking and ultimately uplifting, this is one dance show that audiences will remember forever. Travis Wall will be dancing in the show throughout the tour schedule, and he will be joined by SHAPING SOUND co-founders Teddy Forance and Nick Lazzarini. 

Tickets for SHAPING SOUND After the Curtain are on sale now and can be purchased at Wharton Center's official ticketing outlets: online at, at Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office at Wharton Center or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
