Pillow Party Series

Well-known for its “euphoric scenes” (The New York Times), the Pillow extends its calendar of dance parties in the recently built $5.5 million, 7,373-square foot Perles Family Studio with a focus on the social aspects of dance. As the Pillow transitions to becoming a year-round center for dance research and development through Vision ‘22, it opens up new opportunities for the community to experience and celebrate dance.

All events in the Pillow Party Series are ticketed and open to the public. Individuals of all dance abilities and ages are invited to participate and then dance the night away in this stunning space described by Architectural Digest as a “study in cutting-edge design.”
