Craig began his dance training while he was a student at Loyola University Chicago, where he received a BA in Theatre and was one of the first men to receive the then nascent Dance minor. At the time he worked as a youth boxing and wrestling coach and played for the school’s rugby team. Before finishing school, he began dancing for Antibody Dance, which opened many horizons for him, including giving him the opportunity to perform in Mexico. He has enjoyed a diverse assortment of performance opportunities all over Chicago, with groups such as Lucid Street Theatre and the Anatomy Collective, Matter Dance Chicago, the Broken Ropes Theatre Ensemble, and of course, IDC, where he first performed as Apollo in 2010’s <em>Gods, Monsters, and Heroes</em>. Now a company member with Innervation Dance Cooperative, he devotes his spare time to improving his dance skills and looks forward to working tirelessly in his new capacity as Technical Coordinator. If you’re in downtown Chicago, keep an eye out for Craig, as you may see him cheerfully leading groups of cyclists at his job as a tour guide, presenting visitors with the sights and history of his favorite city.
