DANIEL CHARLES WILD Daniel Charles Wild danced his way into this world August 30, 1965, and stayed dancing and living life to the fullest until March 28, 2020. He will be remembered as a unique soul who graced everyone with his wit and flair for life. Dan leaves to mourn his loss parents, Tom and Marg; brother, Cameron (Simita, Sydney and Jon); his treasured Aunt Carol (Ron); cousin, Heather (Ben and Isobel); nine cousins; and many good friends. Dan was predeceased by brothers, Tim and KJ, and Scott, son of Aunt Carol. His family will miss his laughter, quick wit, gentleness, hugs and his wonderful voice. Dan was an exceptional dancer, and his emotionally powerful performances graced professional stages across Canada for 30 years. His credits include 23 years with the Caravan Stage Company, Winnipeg's Contemporary Dancers, and Dancemakers, touring nationally and internationally with these companies. He created original roles in countless productions by Canada's finest choreographers, and his artistry garnered him multiple Dora Award nominations. He was loved by audiences, and deeply respected by his colleagues and friends. All who knew him were touched by his generous spirit on and off the stage. Whatever he did - dancing, cooking, sailing, writing, or caring for loved ones - Dan did with kindness, artistry and grace. A full tribute and celebration of life will follow in the future. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Actor's Fund of Canada www.afchelps.ca What we have once enjoyed we can never lose; all that we love deeply becomes part of us forever.

He graced the stage during the Festival of New Dance in St John's on numerous occasions - and those performances and post show discussions were always so much richer because of Dan. We are so honoured to have been touched by his infections spirit. Much love to his expansive creative family everywhere. xo Calla

I was so sorry to hear of Danny's passing. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I know that mom and dad sent a message, but I wanted to send one as well. I had the opportunity a few years back to converse with Danny in Winnipeg. He was a very polite and kind man.

He looked after me like a big brother, he dd that for so many people. He taught me what an artist was by his actions. I had never seen anyone do what he was able to do. My memory of him will be standing tall on the back of a Clydesdale as it walked a large circle, and then he began to dance, poised. He was playing Death, and he was so beautiful.
