Wall is an Emmy Award-winning choreographer, known for his work on “So You Think You Can Dance” and frequent guest appearances on “Ellen.” Shaping Sound features innovative choreography and mash-ups of dance and musical genres.
The 2016 Shaping Sound tour stars Kyle Robinson, one of the co-creators of the show; and Gaby Diaz, the 2015 all-around winner and fan favorite of “So You Think You Can Dance.” Also featured in the tour are Jim Nowakowski, a 2015 “So You Think You Can Dance” contestant and Diaz’s frequent dance partner, and some of North America’s best dancers.
The dance company Shaping Sound was established in Los Angeles in 2012 with a focus on contemporary dance and choreographic artistry. Created by Wall, Robinson, Nick Lazzarini and Teddy Forance, the company is composed of diverse artists who describe themselves as “visual musicians.” The four co-creators starred in the reality series “All the Right Moves” on the Oxygen channel, which followed the lifelong friends and roommates in their quest to launch their own dance company.
The Lied Center performance is supported by Pittenger and Anderson, Inc.
