Two days after The Hollywood Reporter conducted a six-month investigation into the misconduct of Break the Floor founder and former choreographer Travis Wall, the dance company has booted him from the tour.
“I can confirm we are no longer using Travis Wall in any capacity. We have decided in the interest of our dancers and company to move forward without him,” CEO and Creative Director of Break the Floor Kelley Neff told the Morning Rush in a statement.
Wall has not officially responded to the allegations made against him. A rep for the dance company told the Morning Rush that Wall would not be making any comment on the matter.
Wall was removed from all of his duties on Friday. In a separate statement released to The Daily Beast, Neff called the allegations in the Hollywood Reporter “incredibly serious and troubling,” and added, “Any workplace that lets such assaults take place is a minefield.”
Neff’s full statement was as follows:
While I cannot speak to or address every allegation within the article written this week, I can tell you that at Break the Floor, we support and empower dancers who come forward with their truth. I can also tell you that, regardless of the outcome of the investigation, I will do everything in my power to protect those who have no voice, women and young girls. Travis Wall has been removed from all of his duties with the Break the Floor company as well as the Break the Floor Fall Tour, effective today. We will not be making any additional comment until the investigation is complete.
