About Thodos Dance Chicago
In 1992, Melissa Thodos, a young Evanston-born, Chicago-based dancer and choreographer, was frustrated with the lack of opportunities for local dancers to work in what she considered to be the obvious environment for any well-rounded dance professional: A place to perform. A place to create. And a place to educate.
