Love to dance and love Sherman Library and Gardens? Join us for a unique community partnership between Backhausdance, Orange County’s award-winning contemporary dance company, and Sherman Library and Gardens with a new creative movement workshop series designed for all ages and abilities.  

Led by Backhausdance artistic director Jennifer Backhaus and Amanda Kay White, associate artistic director, you will have the opportunity to learn Backhausdance technique using the springtime garden landscape as your inspiration and outdoor stage.  

Let’s explore the art and energy of dance together in the beauty of the garden and have fun! No dance experience is necessary. All classes are held outdoors so please wear comfortable clothes, sneakers/shoes, a hat, and sunscreen, and bring water to stay hydrated.
