Danny Tidwell's Husband David Benaym Shares Emotional Tribute After Dancer's Shocking Death

Danny Tidwell‘s husband is breaking his silence after the professional dancer’s shocking death.

News reporter David Benaym took to Instagram on Saturday afternoon (March 7) to share an emotional tribute to Danny, who was sadly killed in a car accident the night before. He was only 35.

“I’m devastated that my Danny, the love of my life, my beloved friend, the artist, the talented angel, fierce mind, legendary dancer, my now late husband, Danny Tidwell died last night in a car crash while his friend was driving him home from work,” David started.

“I’m thinking of Denise, Travis, Scott, Tyler and Shannon, Grandma, his sisters Latoya and Ronda, his friend that was with him, Eddy, that survives him, and all his dance family that is already expressing the state of shock we are all in,” David wrote.

Danny first rose 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.

“We were so lucky to have him, life was so challenging for him,” David continued. “But he was a warrior, and he came back standing, always. We loved each other so much, he was and always will be family. He made me the happiest for so many years, we were able to create so much together, a book and a show, Moving Still, an amazing magazine adventure for 7 years, movmnt magazine, that made us so proud. ”

Danny was the adopted brother of fellow professional dancer and choreographer Travis Wall, who initially announced Danny‘s death.

“He had such an impact on the dance world, life gave him so much to deal with from a young age,” David added. “I will write more about you Danny, tell your story, continue your legacy, make sure that you are not forgotten, that you are celebrated. An angel with no wings you said you were, you were flying all along, and you’ll be our guardian angel from now on.”

David concluded: “I love you, I’ll forever miss you. You’re now in peace, mon Danny, and I know you know how much you were loved.”
