Danny Tidwell, the Season 3 runner-up from season 3 from the reality competition So You Think You Can Dance, has died at age 35. No details on his death were announced.

Tidwell competed at age 22 on the show. Originally from Norfolk, Va., he was a contemporary dance specialist. His brother danced in the previous season and also came in second.

Emmy-winning choreographer Travis Wall, the deceased’s brother, saluted Tidwell on Instagram.

“Yesterday I lost a brother. And we all lost a gift,” he wrote, including a slideshow of Tidwell photos. “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!”

Tidwell was adopted by mother Denise Wall at age 12. He became a member at American Ballet Theater after joining in 2003.
