Supporting Jacob’s Pillow means supporting dance artists at every stage of their careers. University students interested in choreography can attend rehearsals to see world-class artists in action. Dance-makers with only the seeds of an idea are invited to research concepts and investigate movement in residency at the Pillow. And award-winning choreographers bring world premieres to the stage during the Festival.

“When it comes to research and development for the creation of new work, I think dance is the most underserved art form. At Jacob’s Pillow, we want to support dance artists at every stage of development. We are building a beautiful new studio, re-imagining our multi-layered residency programs, and continuing our annual tradition of supporting artists with no strings attached through the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award. The Pillow is delighted to provide time for creative research early in an artist’s process, space for companies to rehearse and continue developing ideas, and technical residencies for choreographers ready to integrate lighting design and other production elements. We ask that every choreographer brings an outside eye to their residency. This can be a person of their choosing who will serve as editor or dramaturge, or it can be someone from another domain that might lend perspective to the work. This kind of collaborative rapport is essential. It’s a necessary part of the creative process.”
