Welcome to BD Online / Move With Us

We invite you to move with us! This FREE channel provides varied technique and conditioning classes that will keep you moving with us from wherever you are. 

We will be dropping new content weekly on this virtual platform as we aim to use technology to close the gap and create connection in this time of social distancing. Many of you are working remotely or dealing with school closures. 

Take a quick break, catch a breath of fresh air, and dance with us!

A Welcome From Jennifer Backhaus

We're going virtual.

An Online Contemporary Dance Summer Intensive

Amid concerns about the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), Backhausdance has decided to move forward with a virtual summer of dancing. BACKHAUSDANCE VIRTUAL SUMMER DANCE 2020 features high-caliber 5-day contemporary dance training programs for aspiring artists and working professionals ages 13 to professional, including special 2-day workshops exclusively designed for pre-teens (ages 10-12) and professional dance educators. 

We know this is not the summer dance experience any of us had planned for, but Team BD is working hard behind-the-scenes to create a virtual program that will capture the same essence and values of our in-person programs:

  • High-caliber training
  • Personal attention
  • Dialogue and connection
  • Prioritizing safe practices and dancer wellbeing
  • Creative process
  • Virtual performance
