     Backbone & Co is a Colorado-based performance collective that was founded by Sarah Touslee in 2014. Dancers Anna Gunderson, Lanea Blackburn, Nomi Tari, Haylie Harwood, Jesse Smith, Vanessa Weingarten, Lydia Purves-Ware, and Elise Gumbiner all join Touslee to form the full lineup of Backbone. The group started performing together in Boulder, but since Backbone's creation several members have moved out of state. Still part of the group, they practice individually with guidance from Touslee over video and phone calls and travel for performances.
