Backhausdance is excited to extend its gratitude to the City of Newport and welcomes the Newport Beach City Arts Commission to our circle of grant providers. The company submitted a grant proposal and was the only contemporary dance company to be award a grant to present a performance and outreach events for all ages and abilities. We feel fortunate to foster this new relationship and bring our engaging dance programming to residents of Newport Beach, as well as invited guests from around Orange County. These events will offer a unique dance experience with Jennifer Backhaus and company members suitable for all dance lovers ages 1-100!
