Travel across the Berkshires with Jacob’s Pillow artists and witness dance in the parks of our community.

Catch outdoor dance performances across the Berkshires, featuring touring and Berkshire-region dance artists to be announced. Pack a blanket or outdoor chair and enjoy these free pop-up performances with family and friends in June (in Pittsfield) and July (in Becket, Great Barrington, and North Adams). Lead support for On the Road is generously provided by Mill Town Foundation.

The June 15 On the Road performance in Pittsfield will feature The Hood Lockers; additional artists will be announced for all dates. Based in Philadelphia, The Hood Lockers formed in 2005 as a “group of brothers united in funk” who perform a variety of styles of street dance, especially Locking, the iconic early 1970s street dance created by Don “Campbellock” Campbell. The Hood Lockers will also perform on the outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage at Jacob’s Pillow this summer, on Friday August 4 at 6pm, as part of a week-long celebration of “Hip Hop Across the Pillow.”

For the safety of artists and the audience, these performances may be moved inside in the event of inclement weather. Please check our website for any important customer service updates and rain plan notification.
