Twitch began working for “The Ellen Show” in 2014, and in 2020 he was given the title of co-executive producer. “I’m devastated. tWitch was only pure light and love. I had nothing but love to give him because he was my family.
He will be missed. Please send Allison and his lovely children Weslie, Maddox, and Zaia your love and support, Ellen DeGeneres wrote on Twitter with a picture of the two sharing a hug backstage.
The dancer-DJ also made appearances in movies including “Step Up: All In” and “Magic Mike XXL” and was a featured dancer in this year’s Disney+ production, “The Hip Hop Nutcracker.” He also finished as a runner-up on “So You Think You Can Dance” and later served as a judge for season 17.
The native of Alabama pursued dance performance studies at Chapman University and Southern Union State Community College because he admired great dancers like Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire, his love of dancing permeated every part of his life.

“In my opinion, Gene Kelly was the greatest performer. Gene Kelly, since he is a gentleman. I adore Fred Astaire, but he was wonderful because he was so graceful. He was quite refined,” Boss remarked in an AP interview from 2014.
However, Gene Kelly might be like someone’s father who decided to get up off the couch, dance around, and clean the kitchen. Boss uploaded dance videos to TikTok with his wife, a talented dancer herself, and their children as extras.
Celebrities like Kerry Washington, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Questlove shared condolences on social media. I’m speechless, man. May this difficult time provide comfort to his family. May we all have tranquility in our daily lives? You never know who is on the edge because every day is a winding path, Questlove wrote on Instagram.

“He was one of a kind. A good man, a husband, a creative person, a dancer, a performer, a shining example… He was exceptional. He could do anything, and he did it with grace, joy, and a little swagger.
Twitch, I’m lost… I feel my heart is frozen, and I don’t want to breathe out because I’m hoping that someone will catch this terrible error if I don’t. And everything will be alright once more,” “Dancing with the Stars,” judge Inaba wrote on Instagram.
