Biography

Jessica Deahr took over the creative reigns of Chicago Dance Crash in January of 2013 shortly after completion of the Company’s 10th anniversary Season as resident choreographer. Graduating with from Wesleyan University with a B.A. in sociology and a minor in dance, Ms. Deahr’s creative background is as diverse as the company she represents. A musical theatre-lover by day and hip hop “B-girl” by night, Jess’s eclectic movement background has contributed to performance credits ranging from Frank Chaves to Vanilla Ice while dancing professionally across the Caribbean, both coasts of the United States, Mexico, Canada, Europe, South Korea, as well as locally. Outside of Crash, Ms. Deahr continues to choreograph jazz, contemporary, and tap works for locally based professional companies while preserving her undying affection for vintage 90’s hip hop music.
