Dance legend and choreographer Travis Wall is championing the LGBT community in one of the most brilliant and moving ways possible: Through dance. In a music video (which Wall conceived, directed, produced and choreographed) for the acoustic cover of "This Is Me" from The Greatest Showman, broadway star Shoshana Bean sings as Wall performs a heartfelt dance that pays tribute to the LGBT community. Wall dances with homophobic insults written all over his face and chest, which are then replaced with words of affirmation and empowerment.
"Message is simple, take something negative and turn it into something positive," Wall captioned the Instagram post that includes a clip from the inspiring video. All proceeds from the song's downloads will go to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
We love seeing dancers use their talents to promote causes they believe in. Dance can be just as powerful as speech, and just as motivating as any rally. Think about ways you can use your dance skills to stand up for causes you believe in.
