I only know you thru your brilliant performances and only just found out of your passing. Feels so wrong. You’re supposed to be here, now. Such a gift to the world. Maybe too bright a light for these times

Rest In Peace & Power Danny. You are so missed.

This hurts my heart, truly hurts. I followed you to check in to see where you were and what you were doing. I wanted you to be that performer that my daughter and I traveled to see. We first saw you on SYTYCD. We’d go where ever you were. Your dance was perfection and the way you came across to the audience was genuine. Like Debbie Allen said, They will write you up in the history books. I will miss looking for you in this world. God undoubtably has you now. Thank you for sharing your given talent with us for that to short a time, but I know you meant well. God bless Danny’s mom, brothers and family.

Out of all the seasons of SYTYCD, all of the performances, all of the contestants......HE WAS THE BEST OF THE BEST!!! I will never, ever forget him and the passion and talent and that beautiful smile he shared with us all. I am heartbroken and devastated for all of his followers, but even more so for his family, friends and husband. He was a rare person that will be sorely missed.....

May God hold your broken hearts in his hands. Danny was more than a brilliant dancer. He was a seeker, a truth finder, a risk taker whos journey rewarded him with love from the seeds planted by his wonderful family. So Who can forget his smile? Who can forget those eyes? He could laugh and cry without shame. He was his own brand , never to be duplicated, always remembered. Dance in Peace and Freedom Danny forever.

I was heartbroken to learn the tragic news about Danny Tidwell. OMG! He was so FINE and indeed a PROLIFIC dancer...one of the absolute best. I felt like I knew him because my family and I cheered furiously for him to win on SYTYCD. I also followed him after the show. But you know, in retrospect, he was already a winner. He was beautiful, gifted, talented, and loved. God simply knew how to show off. May HE continue to bless/give comfort to Danny's family and to all the people who loved him. We will continue to lament his name as he returns as an angel to the dance ensemble in heaven.

I am so sorry Danny passed away. He was clearly a light in this world and your hearts. I will never forget the best "So You Think You Can Dance" solo I ever saw when he gave his finale solo. The reaction from Denise and Travis made it even more special. There is clearly a lot of love in your family. I hope you can be together for some time as you get through this. My sincere sympathies to your entire family and Danny's husband and friends.

I did not know Danny personally but like many millions, I fell in love with his talent and passion for dancing watching him week after week on SYTYCD. I continued to follow him after his time on SYTYCD and would look his performances up on you YouTube. It is sad that he will not be able to continue to share his beautiful talent but his memory and dancing ability will forever live in our hearts. I know he did not have an easy life growing up and was lucky enough to be taken in by the Wall family. May he now rest in peace.

I did not know Danny, nor do I know his beautiful family personally. I, like millions, fell in love with his talents on "So You Think You Can Dance." Loved to watch him dance with so much passion and abandon. I followed his career for years and was happy for him in all of his endeavors. My heart goes out to Denise, Travis, Scott, Tyler, and Shannon, and of course to David....to all who loved him, really. What I wish for all of you is that your journey from here on out is a peaceful one, that you will someday soon be able to smile instead of weep at his memory. He lived such a short life, but such a full life. While he was here he experienced so much, gave so much, and was loved so much. All of you can hopefully take comfort at least in that. Love to all of you from a total stranger. I'm sure that there are so many total strangers feeling the same way right now.

Rest well, Danny. You are loved and missed. Watch over us and smile upon us with your beautiful, beautiful smile.
