A trip to the Jacob’s Pillow Dance should be on your list of what I did this summer. If you have never seen a Dance Performance then there is no better way to start than “Head for the Hills” and experience some of the many varieties of dance companies and styles from around the world that perform there every week.
Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival is "the dance center of the nation" (The New York Times). The Pillow is home to America's longest-running dance festival, is a National Historic Landmark, and a recipient of the National Medal of Arts. It is located in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts in the town of Stockbridge. Jacob's Pillow hosts more than 50 dance companies as well as 350 free and ticketed performances, talks, exhibits, films, classes, tours, and community events.
