Well, no, not biologically. But I would be interested to see my adopted brother's reaction to my or my biological sister's assertion that we were "not related."Because they aren't, thankfully, related.
[Danny] hasn't got Travis's need to be the centre of attention in order to express his artistry.
They're brothers. At one point Danny said that Denise had adopted him. Whether or not that was in formal legal terms probably didn't and doesn't matter a hell of a lot to one of the most gifted dancers, albeit seeminly troubled*, I have ever seen. He calls Denise Wall "Mom." Just sayin'.
*His love for the art is real. His inability, however, to love the art enough to deal with structure -- at ABT, even at Complexions -- makes me wonder what the hell happened to him, growing up. Danny is my all-time favorite, no one comes close, but given his talent, he should be following and eventually outdoing Desmond Richardson or Carlos Acosta in terms of "best male dancer alive." But as long as he's happy, and happy dancing, I'm thrilled for him. I'd bet Travis is, too.
