Welcome to The School at Jacob's Pillow!

The School at Jacob’s Pillow is a pivotal experience, where dancers and choreographers define and strengthen their distinct artistic voices, and make the connections that will advance their work in the field. In 2023, artists will work with a career-building network of Artist Faculty who are leading programs in Contemporary Ballet, Tap Dance, Contemporary, The Dunham Legacy Revisited,
and the Hicks Choreography Fellows Program.
