Mission Statement

To support dance creation, presentation, education, and preservation; and to engage and deepen public appreciation and support for dance.

Description

Jacob’s Pillow Dance is lauded worldwide as a "hub and mecca of dancing" (TIME Magazine), "one of America’s most precious cultural assets" (Mikhail Baryshnikov), and "the dance center of the nation" (The New York Times).

"The Pillow" is a treasured 220-acre National Historic Landmark, a recipient of the prestigious National Medal of Arts, and home to America’s longest-running international dance festival.

Each year thousands of people from across the U.S. and around the globe visit the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts to experience the Festival with more than 50 dance companies and 200 free performances, talks, and events; train at The School at Jacob's Pillow, one of the most prestigious professional dance training centers in the U.S.; explore the Pillow’s rare and extensive dance Archives; and take part in numerous Community Programs designed to educate and engage dance audiences of all ages.
