Who we are
TDJC is a talent agency, performance, and production company in Chicago founded in 2013 by choreographer and filmmaker Dani Jo Williams. Our mission is to provide clients with professional and innovative talent to help bring productions to life. We also provide a unique hub for talent and production to create original content.
Chicago native Dani Jo Williams initially entered the entertainment industry as a sought-after dancer and choreographer. Her unique style seamlessly weaves classical, interpretive, and street..often times into one routine. The Columbia College alum, and student of Gil Duldulao, served as head choreographer for The Harold Washington Cultural Center from 2013 to 2015. She also served as Head Choreographer for the University of Chicago Charter Schools for the 2015-16 season, as well as Instructor for The Joffrey Ballet from 2016-2019. As a filmmaker she has directed and co-produced numerous music video projects; including music videos for R&B artist T. L. Williams, Afro-Beat artist Peter Jericho, and R&B legend Syleena Johnson. She founded The Dani Jo Company in 2013 initially as a youth dance troupe. Upon noticing the lack of proper representation in the dance mecca of the Chicago market, TDJC moved into it's current role as an agency aimed to proprely represent and uphold the influential culture of chicago dance.
