Millikin University - Decatur, IL

Jeremy Blair ('06) former company member of Thodos Dance Chicago and currently pursuing his MFA in Dance at University of Iowa, returns to MU for a unique dance residency. 

Millikin alum, Jeremy Blair (’06), has been on campus this week for an exciting residency in dance.  For five years, Jeremy was a member of the contemporary dance company, Thodos Dance Chicago (TDC).  During his tenure with the company he performed in concerts nationally and internationally and also choreographed a number of works that are now part of the TDC permanent repertoire.  Last week, Jeremy began setting a piece of his choreography on our student dancers and on Saturday evening, our students will perform the piece, entitled Reflections, in the Thodos Dance Chicago concert at Kirkland Fine Arts Center.  Reflections originally premiered at the internationally acclaimed Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in Becket, Massachusetts.

This residency offers our dancers a rare opportunity to work with an internationally acclaimed dance company right here on campus.  These seven students (plus two understudies) will become members of the TDC company for the weekend, spending time taking company class, rehearsing, dining, and performing with this group of professional dancers.  They will build professional relationships with these accomplished artists and will experience what it’s like to be part of an established dance company.  Millikin Blue will burn brightly this weekend as one of our own returns to campus to share his professional work with our students and the community. 

 The cast of Reflections includes:
 Lexis Danca
  Andy Frank
 Keila Hamed-Ramos
Elliot Marach
 Mackenzie McAlindon
  Justin Ostergard
 Elena Romanowski
 Alex Buchko
   David Triptow
