Dallas Voice: What’s it like living with these guys?Wall: We’ve been living together for two years now and it’s been something else! We’d have a dance company regardless of whether we have a TV show or not.I moved to New York at 12 and did a Broadway show and I’ve been working ever since. When I heard, I texted him right away to say, “I’m so proud of you.” He’s coming out of a church; I never had to deal with any of that.To take that step to come out — and not only that, but speak about what his church says about it — I’m so proud of him, because it’s about time he did it, and I wanted him to do it for so long.I think if everyone came out of the closet these days, the world would be so much better. I knew on the show, and we briefly touched on it while we were on tour.Right now my room is such a mess because I’m always trying to clean up the kitchen and the living room. We have this huge goal but absolutely no way of getting it done. Has having a dance company always been a dream of yours? What new goals have you set for yourself now that you’ve accomplished your other ones?When I have time to clean, I have to clean up everybody else’s mess. By the time I’m 31 I want to move into directing and producing and choreographing my own movies, productions, events and shows. If someone would’ve told me seven years ago, “You’re going to have your own TV show, your own dance company, choreographing all these movies and things,” I would’ve slapped them in the face and said, “Yeah, right.” But I did. It’s emotional and [viewers] want to see what people go through; they want to see people work through their problems and aggressions. It makes people feel good because a lot of people don’t know how to dance the way we dance, so they admire it.
We’re brothers from another mother, and we go through life together and support each other. What will surprise people about the dance world that you guys are living in during this show? How much of your relationship with Dom Palange will be part of the show?Two are gay and two are straight on this show, so it’s cool to see how we live as one and how it doesn’t really matter. We’re never really up for the same job, but it does get a little competitive in the house sometimes. In the beginning, we were all pretty good about keeping it together, but everyone kind of gave up. What we have to go through starting this dance company from the ground up with no money — you see the whole process. It’s definitely suspenseful and emotional and also there’s beautiful dancing. Not as much as I wanted to be, because he’s in Miami. He comes in halfway through the season, but I definitely talk about him as much as possible. You really have done so much for as young as you are.phenom Travis Wall and premieres tomorrow, July 31, on Oxygen.Travis sat down with our intrepid reporter Chris Azzopardi for a one-on-one interview with the 24-year-old as he tries to launch his own dance company.
There’s so much more room for me to grow in this industry, and I can’t wait to take those steps. With your new series, and ones like , dance reality shows are all the rage. With this [show], you see me 100 percent completely bare, and you see why I dance and why I choreograph, and you care about it more. It was my first time in front of a camera, and I realized then that I wanted to be in this industry. And I have really vivid dreams a lot of times and I live my dreams full out. I dream every night, so there’s a lot of images I take from my dreams. Do you think that’s the best way to come out if you’re a public figure? This is what’s so crazy: I never thought I was “in.” I never had press to talk about it. I guess when I got verbal about on it Twitter people were like, “Travis is out.” I’m like, “When was I ‘in’?
You got your start in the business when you were 9, with a Dr. I was more interested in what was going on behind the camera — the chorographer, the director — I loved that and I’ll never forget that. ” I did and disappeared from the public eye because I was working on choreography and I didn’t really ever think I was a big enough public figure to say anything. Have you ever felt pressure to ever stay “in” professionally? What did you think of Benji Schwimmer, fellow contestant on the first season of , coming out recently?
