The School Experience
Live & train on these beautiful historic grounds
The School at Jacob’s Pillow is a fully immersive experience demanding stamina, perseverance, risk-taking, creative collaboration, and passion. Dancers live and work as artists under the direction of a faculty who are the field’s most revered legends, choreographers, performers, and teachers. They lead classes, rehearsals, discussions, and seminars as well as coach and guide dancers both inside and outside of the studio.Learn about Life at the Pillow
