A Benefit for The School at Jacob’s Pillow

August 18, 2019 | 4pm

Directed by Michelle Dorrance and Dormeshia, this lively, heartfelt evening showcases choreography and improvisations created in just three weeks by The School at Jacob’s Pillow Tap Program.

Dancers of The School at Jacob’s Pillow experience daily, intensive studio work and perform weekly for Festival audiences. They work with artistic directors and choreographers on faculty as well as Festival artists who all represent a wide range of choreographic and performance approaches, traditions, and innovations. Classes, rehearsals, and coaching sessions run 9am to 5pm, six days a week with evenings spent attending Festival events and studying in the Archives. The resources, professional advancement opportunities, and relationships dancers gain at the Pillow help develop the unique resonant voice they each need to succeed as a dance artist. Learn more about The School at Jacob’s Pillow.

Artist Faculty and dancers are dedicating this evening to Dianne Walker for her contributions to tap dance at Jacob’s Pillow, in Berkshire County, and in their lives as a caring mentor and inspiring artist.

Purchase a $150 ticket and join us after the show for a special GOTTA DANCE benefit toast.
