Jacob’s Pillow 360
The 360 Intensives are designed for career-aspiring and pre-professional dancers, ages 14 – 18. In partnership with universities, 360 Intensives will introduce dancers to The School Experience by working with renowned Jacob’s Pillow Artist Faculty and Alumni. During the three days, dancers also work with the esteemed faculty of our partner schools. While learning about these highly regarded training centers, dancers will be strengthening their technique in a variety of dance styles, learning about the college audition process, gaining valuable career advice, and being virtually introduced to the Pillow’s world class digital resources.
