The Break the Floor dance company suspended Travis Wall following an investigation into allegations of misconduct by the choreographer in an on-set altercation with a crew member, People has learned.
The three-time Emmy winner, who is set to dance in the long-awaited Broadway revival of “The Visit” this month, reportedly allowed one cast member from the production to be given drinks and dancing lessons by a crew member. The crew member and cast member got into an altercation on set, resulting in one crew member being cut on the head and another receiving a broken wrist.
The police were called to the production and an investigation was launched. The Break the Floor tells People it implemented many changes following the incident, including training cast members on their rights.
The company also told People it suspended Wall pending the results of the investigation and wants to “ensure the safety of the cast and crew of this production, which is paramount to us.” The company has also created a new “break the floor” policy in which cast members should be trained in safe handling of alcohol.
Travis is no stranger to controversy. He was accused of groping a dancer in 2014 by his former assistant, Megan Bristow. An investigation and investigation by the New York Post found the two parties had a falling out that year when Bristow discovered that Wall, 29, had a 15-year-old new assistant.
