South Chicago Dance Theatre celebrates its 5th anniversary season with 5 new commissions by several accomplished choreographers to create new works for the company’s Harris Theater debut, “An Evening with the South Chicago Dance Theatre: Celebrating Five Years” on Friday, May 20, 2022. The choreographers include SCDT Founder and Executive Artistic Director Kia S. Smith and guests Ron De Jesus, longtime Chicago dancer and choreographer; Stephanie Martinez, founder and artistic director of PARA.MAR Dance Theatre; Crystal Michelle Perkins, associate artistic director of Dayton Contemporary Dance Company; and Wade Schaaf, founder and artistic director of Chicago Repertory Ballet.
