Get Set for the 2015 Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival!

May 16th, 2015 by Corey A. Edwards

Jacob's Pillow Dance Season 2015

One of the first signs of summer, the annual Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, is almost upon us and the Berkshires are already a-buzz with what promises to be another standout season!

The annual Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival is America’s longest-running dance festival, having been started in the 1930’s by modern dance pioneer Ted Shawn. Jacob’s Pillow Farm has been designated a National Historic Landmark and Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival is a recipient of the National Medal of Arts.

Some might even go so far as to say that Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival is the cultural foundation upon which the beautiful Berkshires of Western Massachusetts rest – but far be it from us to promote so divisive a notion. It is without doubt, however, that the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival is hugely instrumental in the training and educating of dancers, choreographers, administrators, and instructors through the annual workshops, seminars, and international dance performances it brings to the Berkshires.

This year’s Pillow Dance Festival should prove no different:
