Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival 2015 has come to a close. Join us for our next Festival, June 22-August 28, 2016, and enjoy dance all year long through Jacob's Pillow Dance Interactive.

In 2015 Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival hosted more than 50 dance companies from Cuba, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Canada, and all across the U.S.

The tap stars of Dorrance Dance presented The Blues Project with live music by Toshi Reagon and BIGlovely. Nederlands Dans Theater 2 returned with stunning contemporary works. The world premiere of Daniil Simkin's INTENSIO featured top dancers from American Ballet Theatre. From Cuba, Malpaso Dance Company performed with GRAMMY Award-winners Arturo O'Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble. In August, the beautiful dancers of The Sarasota Ballet made their Jacob's Pillow debut. Martha Graham Dance Company kicked off its 90th Anniversary with classic Graham works and choreographers of today. And we honored Executive and Artistic Director Ella Baff's final season at the Pillow.


A National Historic Landmark and National Medal of Arts recipient, Jacob's Pillow is home to America's longest running dance festival, located in the beautiful Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts.

Each year thousands of people from around the world visit the Festival to experience more than 50 dance companies and 350 ticketed and free performances, talks, and events. Dancers train at The School at Jacob's Pillow, visitors explore the Pillow's rare and extensive dance Archives; and anyone can take part in more than 200 free events and offerings designed to engage audiences of all ages.

We invite you to explore, enjoy, and experience dance--whether you are a longtime aficionado or a newcomer to this great art form. Sign up to receive Pillow updates on email or join us on Facebook.
