It’s a constant conversation.” The freestyle hip-hop dancer, choreographer, and actor was the runner-up on the American version of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ where he met his wife.

tWitch worked on the hit Ellen show from 2014 and was made executive producer in 2020 until it ended in 2022. Remembering the family man for what he was, heartbroken Allison told People, “Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans. To say he left a legacy would be an understatement, and his positive impact will continue to be felt. I am certain there won’t be a day that goes by that we won’t honor his memory. We ask for privacy during this difficult time for myself and especially for our three children. Stephen, we love you, we miss you, and I will always save the last dance for you.”
