2021 Programs of The School at Jacob’s Pillow

Even in times of reinvention, we must strive for the dreams we hold dearest, look for ways to stay strong and get stronger, and forge the connections that will advance our work… our dreams.
Next summer will be one of those times for dancers at Jacob’s Pillow.
The School at Jacob’s Pillow continues to be where those committed to being at the forefront of artistry are mentored and nurtured, this time with newly-designed programs running both onsite and online.
For health and safety, eleven dancers per program will work on-site as The School’s Performance Ensemble. In addition, the same remarkable Artist Faculty will lead companion online programs open to 20 dancers. Both groups will perform for Pillow audiences, work with esteemed choreographers, learn dance film techniques, participate in online interactive discussions and seminars together, view footage from the Jacob’s Pillow Archive, and much more.

Plus: Starting in January, you can take online Master Classes led by stellar artist alumni to learn more about our 2021 plans.
