In 2012, the Oxygen network premiered the reality show All the Right Moves. It followed Emmy-nominated choreographer Travis Wall as he started his dance company Shaping Sound with three lifelong friends. Could they make it as upstarts in today’s competitive dance industry? Would their friendships survive the pressures of going into business? Will Taja really walk out before the critical opening night performance? We confess to having no idea (or even basic cable). But a lack of Comcast won’t keep us from seeing the dancers in Shaping Sound. The show’s program reads like a who’s who of the contemporary dance industry. Founders Wall, Nick Lazzarini, Teddy Forance, and Kyle Robinson have choreographed and danced for Dancing with the Stars, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Rihanna, and Adele between them, and the show boasts no fewer than nine alumni of So You Think You Can Dance. Readers with a few of their own moves can register for a pre-show workshop with the cast, and ballet fans should keep an eye out for S.F. native Chantel Aguirre, who danced with the San Francisco Ballet. It should be a night with all the right moves, indeed.
