Out choreographer Travis Wall is getting praise for bringing the first same-sex partner dance to So You Think You Can Dance this week.
Wall teased the choreography on Twitter before it aired, promising "This piece is so special to my heart." And after the live show, praise poured in from activists and even Jason Collins, the NBA's first out player, who called it "an amazing opening" to Wednesday's show.
Wall, wearing a "Create Love, Destroy Hate" T-shirt, thanked the four dancers who performed.
