DEL at Jacob’s Pillow introduces K-12 dance educators, college dance students, college professors, classroom teachers, and dance history enthusiasts to the DEL model of dance education—situated alongside the resources that Jacob’s Pillow offers as a year-round center for dance research and development, including state-of-the-art studio spaces, unparalleled dance Archives, Pillow Lab artist residencies, and a retreat-like atmosphere.

DEL at Jacob’s Pillow programming draws direct links to the rich resources of the Jacob’s Pillow Archives and interactive multi-media site, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive, with a specific focus on reimagining the teaching of dance history and supporting the New England-based dance community in accessing professional learning in dance education.
