Mitchell Tannis Obituary, Death – Mitchell Tannis, a member of the company, passed away unexpectedly and suddenly, and the business is grieved to learn of his departure. Mitchell possessed an extraordinary brilliant energy that shone bright both on and off the stage. Because of his vivacious nature and unstoppable charisma, it was a joy to have him as a contributor to our projects and a member of the ACB family. To his family and friends, please accept our most heartfelt sympathies. I pray that he finds eternal rest.
It is with the deepest regret that I must inform you of the passing of Mitchell Tannis, a dear friend of mine for many years, a member of my dance family, and a cherished dancing partner. It is impossible to adequately convey how shocking and heartbreaking this news is. The thing that people remember most about Mitch is his enormously big smile and his even greater heart. You could always feel secure being yourself with him, and he never got tired of helping other people — both literally and figuratively — improve their lives. If I had known that the time we spent together on Friday would be our final encounter, I would have stretched out the day as much as possible. Life is much too precarious and fleeting to be this way. Mitch, you were and will always be someone who meant a great deal to me. I don’t think you had any idea how really exceptional you are and how that will never change. I adore you my dear pal
