All Pre-Professional and Adv/Pro dancers participating in Week 3 (August 1 - 6) will have the opportunity to share the stage with Backhausdance in a fully-produced performance of the company’s critically-acclaimed Incandescent at the newly-unveiled Musco Center for the Arts

Incandescent is a 72-minute work choreographed by Jennifer Backhaus that will feature a cast of more than 100 dancers. In daily rehearsals, the intensive participants will work directly with company dancers and Artistic Director Jennifer Backhaus to learn, rehearse, and ultimately, perform the dance live on stage for an audience.


MANDATORY REHEARSALS & PERFORMANCES

Dancers participating in Incandescent must attend ALL rehearsals for the weeks which they are enrolled. Mandatory rehearsals are held daily from 2:15pm - 3:45pm (Pre-Professional) and 4pm to 5:30pm (Adv/Pro). 

An extended spacing and dress rehearsal schedule for Friday, August 5 and Saturday, August 6 will be distributed before the start of the intensive. Plan on a full day of events in the theater.

Participating dancers will provide the following:

  • clean, black leggings,
