Backhausdance is committed to educating the community about the relevance and vitality of concert dance, both as valuable art form and as a tool for learning. The company is dedicated to the creation, development, awareness and understanding of the art of contemporary dance. Dance is more than just steps or movement - its creation and perfection engages all learning modalities and encourages the integration of the mind, body and soul of the dancer. The company’s education programs reach students of all ages through our annual summer intensive, residency programs, master classes and more. 

EDUCATION PARTNERS

Backhausdance's ongoing partnerships with the McCallum Theatre and Segerstrom Center for the Arts are a testament to the company's commitment to educating the community about the relevance and vitality of concert dance, as both a valuable art form and as a tool for learning. Annually, more than 3,000 students in Orange and San Bernardino counties as well as the desert schools work with Backhausdance, who exposes them to dance curriculum they would not otherwise have an opportunity to experience.
