WELCOME FROM BD DIRECTOR JENNIFER BACKHAUS
We are thrilled that you will be joining us for our 13th Annual Backhausdance Summer Intensives. Below you will find detailed information regarding our intensive faculty, classes, suggested attire, evening activities and helpful tips to make the most of your time with us.
Since its inception in 2003, Backhausdance has performed extensively coast-to-coast as one of Southern California’s premier contemporary modern dance companies. Currently wrapping up its 14th season, the company continually strives to educate the community about the relevance and vitality of concert dance. We are excited to spend a few weeks with you as we continue to push the boundaries on technical growth and artistic development.
We are excited to share that all dancers participating in Week 3 (July 31 - August 5) will have the opportunity to share the stage with Backhausdance company dancers and alumni in a fully produced performance at the Musco Center for the Arts as we celebrate the launch of the company's 15th season. Save the date for Saturday, August 5. It will be an extraordinary event as a cast of more than 100 takes the stage in this 1,100-seat, state of-the-art venue. Priority Ticket Sales for intensive participants' friends and family begin soon!
