Jacob’s Pillow kicks off the first of Discover Pittsfield’s Third Thursday street festivals with an All Styles Dance Battle. Taking place in the Pillow’s monthly Dance Zone on North Street, the battle is open to participants of all ages, abilities, and styles and features Berkshire-favorite DJ BFG spinning tracks live. Community judges, including The Funk Box Dance Studio‘s founder Andres Ramirez, will decide who will be the crowned winner—for bragging rights and a $250 cash prize. 

To participate in the All Styles Dance Battle, sign up here. Day-of registration runs from 3-5pm on North Street located near the corner of Bradford in front of St. Joseph Church.
