Thodos Dance Chicago cultivates new dance creation through our renowned New Dances series. New Dances is Chicago's earliest and most extensive in-house choreography project which provides TDC ensemble members the unique opportunity to step backstage and call their own shots as choreographers and directors.
"Members of Thodos Dance Chicago are far more than performers -- they are creative artists selected to join the company based on their passion and talent for choreography. We are unique in our strong commitment to support dance creation as no other dance organization offers as comprehensive of an in-house choreography initiative to its artists as ours," explains TDC Founder and Artistic Director, Melissa Thodos, about the New Dances project.
New Dances 2017 will feature World Premieres by TDC Company members John Cartwright, Abby Ellison, Alex Gordon, Hattie Haggard, Thomas Jacobson, Jessica Miller Tomlinson, Brennen Renteria, Luis Vazquez, and guest choreographer, Melissa Thodos.
