Anna-Marie Holmes and a distinguished international faculty prepare dancers for the
artistic range and technical rigor required by today's world-class ballet companies.

Choreographer Matthew Neenan, BalletX Artistic Director, creates a new work on the dancers, who perform its world premiere at the Festival's Season Opening Gala on June 20. Dancers also receive in-depth coaching in renowned classical solo, pas de deux, and ensemble works, which they perform June 27 as part of the free outdoor performance series.

Separate men's and women's classes are part of the curriculum, as are seminars in
career development, musicality, style characteristics, and ballet history. Attending Festival performances, public talks, exhibits, master classes, and studying in the Archives are integral to this immersion experience in dance.

Alumni of The School at Jacob's Pillow are principals, soloists, and members of American Ballet Theatre, Boston Ballet, Het Nationale Ballet, Houston Ballet, National Ballet of Canada, Royal Danish Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, and more.

For 11 male and 11 female ballet dancers at advanced pre-professional and professional level with strong performance skills, age 16 and up. Click here for Anna-Marie Holmes' bio. For audition and application details, click here.
