Thodos Dance Chicago with members of the University Dance Company

“Breathtakingly athletic” and “powerfully beautiful” are among the ways audiences and the press describe Thodos Dance Chicago (TDC). The company’s mission of inspiring expression through dance education, creation and performance has established TDC as an original force in modern dance.

TDC will perform A Light in the Dark, a work about Helen Keller, and a variety of other pieces. Members of KU’s University Dance Company (UDC) will perform Subtle Passages, which will be set during an intensive residency. UDC is a pre-professional performance ensemble that performs locally, regionally and nationally.
