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. 

Festival 2016 will take place June 22 through August 28; the season lineup will be announced in December.
