Danny Tidwell Dead - 'So You Think You Can Dance' Finalist Dies at 35

Professional dancer Danny Tidwell has died at the young age of 35.

Danny shot to fame when he appeared on the third season of the Fox competition series So You Think You Can Dance in 2007. He came in second place.

Danny was the adopted brother of dancer Travis Wall, who came in second place on So You Think You Can Dance season two.

Travis wrote on Instagram, “My heart is broken. Yesterday I lost a brother. And we all lost a gift. I’m not ready. But I never think I will be. Because I can’t believe this is real. I can’t believe you’re gone. You were more than my brother. You were my inspiration. I idolized you growing up. Wanted to dance just like you. Wanted to be you! I wish I could jump in your arms again like we used to when we were kids and onstage dancing. We will all remember the joy and passion you brought to everyone you came in contact with through out your journey. A journey cut to short. You are a legend. And I love you so much Danny. Rest In Peace my brother. I can’t believe I’m even typing this. Please pray for my mom and my family during this difficult time.”

We’re sending our thoughts and condolences to all of Danny‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
