Thodos Dance Chicago’s 16th Annual “New Dances”, an exhilarating smorgasbord of contemporary dance performed on the main stage at the Athenaeum, featured nine world premier works by nine talented young choreographers. Thodos has a long-standing tradition of encouraging company members to stretch their wings and become choreographers, launching more than 75 company members into successful choreographic careers. In fact, Founder and Artistic Director, Melissa Thodos, introduced two highly successful alumni, Jeremy Blair and Brock Clawson, before the performance.
