Black Lives Matter
Jacob's Pillow commits to confronting the reality of racism in our country, and pledges to expand our previous efforts to confront implicit biases, to practice deep listening, and to hold ourselves accountable.
Intent on legitimizing dance in America as an honorable career for men, choreographer and dancer Ted Shawn founded Jacob’s Pillow in 1931.
“Thousands of people, of all ages, from across the United States and the world, have Jacob’s Pillow to thank for opening their horizons to dance.”
