#BDSeason14 Dancers (L to R): Sammy DeAngelo (apprentice), Chihiro Sano, Evan Swenson, Amanda Kay White, Joshua King, Kaitlin Regan, Amie Lee Kilgore, Toshiro Abbley & Katie Natwick (apprentice). 

As another year comes to a close and we kick off our 10 Days of Gratitude, there is no better place to start than by thanking the Backhausdancers for their amazing dedication to the mission and creative legacy of the company. They work tirelessly to maintain beautiful and strong technique, mature artistry, and to provide innovative movement and inspiration to all of the choreographers who engage with Backhausdance.

This season, we are happy to welcome Toshiro Abbley as a company member, as well as Sammy DeAngelo and Katie Natwick as apprentices. You will see them all perform alongside Backhausdance favorites Amanda Kay White, Tawny Chapman, Chihiro Sano, Kaitlin Regan, Joshua King, Amie Lee Kilgore and Evan Swenson, at our February 3, 2017 concert at Irvine Barclay Theatre.

I am thankful every day that I am able to make art with these amazing artists and caring, sensitive humans. They are truly a light in my life.


Help us provide rehearsal and performance pay for these talented artists. Donate $15 or more today and you’ll be entered to win a poster autographed by the entire 2016-2017 company.
