College Partnership Program

Join and shape the next generation of dance professionals

The Jacob’s Pillow College Partnership Program exists regionally, nationally, and internationally to elevate dance as a means of research, discourse, and artistic expression for faculty, artists, scholars, and students working within higher education.

In partnership, this program supports academic research, curriculum development, dance-making, and dance pedagogy by promoting year-round engagement with the Jacob’s Pillow Archives and on-site programs, acting as a catalyst for discussion and action. The program builds professional networks and strengthens the professional pipelines for diverse scholarship, pedagogy, performance, and choreography, convening partners on critical issues in the field and engaging the next generation in the field’s collective history and current professional landscape.

  • In Process Series showings at the Pillow Lab, Q&A with artists, and reception
  • Curated Day at the Pillow Visits tailored to your artistic and academic interests
  • Priority assistance for research and access to the Jacob’s Pillow Archives and Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive
