Dance We Must

Jun 20


A Virtual Event Supporting Jacob’s Pillow
June 20 | 7pm EDT

Hosted by Wendy Whelan and Kyle Abraham

Featuring live performances by Kyle Abraham’s A.I.M, Michelle Dorrance, Irene Rodríguez, Calvin Royal III, Daniel Ulbricht & Danielle Diniz, and more!

Join us online for a very special evening, as Jacob’s Pillow—the only National Historic Landmark dedicated to dance—celebrates the magic and talent of a world of artists finding new ways to come together. In addition to one-time-only live performances, Dance We Must includes pop-up visits by Artistic Directors from around the world, surprise guests, and the presentation of the 2020 Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award.

Connect with the joy and transformative power of dance as we navigate these uncertain times.

For 88 years, Jacob’s Pillow has been hallowed ground for dancers and all who love dance. After canceling our Festival for the first time in our history, we are doing everything possible to keep the dance community around the world connected. We are working to be a virtual crossroads for the field while sustaining our key programs, buildings, and grounds to stay strong for when artists and audiences can come together again.

Dance We Must will support the Pillow in continuing to serve as a beacon for dance while helping the communities we serve across the globe and in our region.
