"Breathtakingly athletic," "powerfully beautiful," and performing "vibrant choreography" are among the many critical accolades that Thodos Dance Chicago has received since its inception. The company performs on national and international dance circuits, as well as in Chicago's most prominent dance events.

Highlights of the company's annual performance season include the fall and winter concerts, touring engagements, as well as the "New Dances" choreography series presented each summer. TDC has been featured at Chicago's annual "Dance for Life" fundraising benefit for HIV/AIDS and in Dance Chicago's month long Fall Festival of Dance.
