November 2, 2017 (Becket, MA) — Jacob’s Pillow announces the launch of The Ann & Weston Hicks Choreography Fellows Program in summer of 2018, marking continued implementation of Vision ‘22, the institution’s five-year growth plan to support and expand its role as a year-round center for dance creation and research. Directed by two revered artists and mentors, Dianne McIntyre and Risa Steinberg, this ten-day program is underwritten for eight, early-career choreographers approximately 20-30 years of age. Specifically designed for artists looking to advance their work, refine their choreographic voice, and expand their network, this program creates an intimate choreographic intensive at The School at Jacob’s Pillow, a world renowned center for professional dance training.

From June through August, The School at Jacob’s Pillow will offer five additional Professional Advancement Programs: Ballet, Contemporary, Musical Theatre Dance, Art of Photographing Dance, and a rare, in-depth, two-week program in Gaga: The Movement Language of Ohad Naharin.
