OXYGEN MEDIA MAKES "ALL THE RIGHT MOVES" WITH LAUNCH OF NEW DANCE BASED DOCU-SERIES ON TUESDAY, JULY 31 AT 11PM ET/PT

"All The Right Moves" Chronicles The Journey of Emmy(R)-Nominated Choreographer Travis Wall and His Three Closest Friends As They Launch SHAPING SOUND Dance Company

NEW YORK - May 24, 2012 - Oxygen Media will premiere "All the Right Moves," a new one hour docu-series following the tight knit friendships and lives of four of the most successful and sought-after dancers in the industry, on Tuesday, July 31 at 11PM ET/PT.

The world of dance is fiercely competitive, but with careers, reputations, and friendships at stake, Emmy(R)-nominated choreographer Travis Wall ("So You Think You Can Dance"), Teddy Forance (recently featured on "Dancing With the Stars" as dancer and choreographer), Nick Lazzarini (winner of "So You Think You Can Dance" season one), and Kyle Robinson (Julliard-trained and recently featured on "Dancing With the Stars") band together to take this art form to a whole new level by launching the dance company SHAPING SOUND. Through blood, sweat, and tears these lifelong friends and roommates are determined to come together and make this venture a success, giving background dancers a chance to shine.

"We're constantly looking for programming that really ignites the interests of our viewers, who are on the cutting edge of trends happening throughout pop culture" commented Rod Aissa, Senior Vice President, Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media. "'All The Right Moves' does exactly that by showcasing the path of four friends who are enormously talented dancers and choreographers, really going for their dreams as they take on this amazing new business opportunity."

Turning their passion into paychecks, the eight episode series kicks off with Travis, Nick and Teddy diving head first into starting their business after years of dreaming about the launch of a contemporary dance company in Los Angeles. But with the competitive world of dance, the guys quickly find themselves knee deep in a power struggle with their friends and peers. Taja, Travis' protégé, challenges his position as leader while newcomer Kyle questions his role in the company. Meanwhile Jaimie, Travis' best friend and fellow "So You Think You Can Dance" alumni, longs for a spot in the company after a debilitating knee injury.

It was also during this time that he met legendary dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov who began to mentor Kyle from that point on. He went on to fine tune his abilities by training at the Julliard School, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Throughout his college experience Kyle continued to take his skill to the next level, and worked as a freelance dancer with Aszure & Artists as well as the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company.
