"Dance Crash is a solidly established ensemble that draws on a slew of styles,
from breakdance to ballet, impressively unifying them into a single aesthetic.
There is a warrior, action film aspect to their work, but also plenty of emotional
depth underpinned by strong technique." -Chicago Sun-Times.

Think Matthew Bourne, but with a more primitive, ritualistic, streetwise attack.”
-Dance Magazine


Founded in 2002, Chicago Dance Crash has emerged as the premier ‘fusion-style’
hip hop/contemporary dance company in the Midwest. Emphasizing a unique mission of both athleticism and accessibility, the Crash aesthetic is most notably recognized by its combination of concert and hiphop techniques in works ranging from full-length productions to repertory pieces and freestyles.

Providing a wide array of works, Crash’s repertory includes choreography by some of the country’s top contemporary, jazz, and hip hop dancemakers while being commissioned to perform at events and stages including arenas, museums, rock clubs, award shows, subways,
and floating atop Lake Michigan. Within the last several seasons, Crash has been featured on Italian, French, and American television as well as nationally recognized mediums including Dance Magazine and The Huffington Post.

A two-time winner of the Black Theater Alliance Award for Choreography, Crash was selected by critics as “The Best Dance Company in Chicago” by the Chicago Reader, hailed by Newcity Stage as one of the top two dance companies to emerge from Chicago within the past decade, and most recently was acknowledged for creating “The Most Inventive Work of 2017” in the U.S. by Dance Magazine.

The company’s nine-member Performance Ensemble and army of Artistic Associates boastprofessional training backgrounds from London to Chicago’s Southside, holds degrees in dance, and teaches K-12 grade students as well as professional and pre-professional classes throughout the state of Illinois. Crash is a touring artist of Urban Gateways and is in residence at Visceral Dance Center where it holds weekly classes open to the public in contemporary, breakdancing, and acrobatics.

The company’s recent touring engagements include commissioned performances/workshops in NYC, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Iowa City, Tulsa, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Boston, Detroit,
Buffalo as well as locally.
