Happy almost-birthday to Jacob's Pillow!
In just a few weeks Jacob’s Pillow will open its 80th anniversary season! That is surely cause to celebrate. (The Gala is Saturday June 16th.) Jacob’s Pillow is located in the Berkshire of Massachusetts. From Ted Shawn to David Hallberg, eventually everyone passes through that place. It’s worth a trip to Massachusetts this summer if you can swing it!
Some interesting Pillow talk:
– It’s a Historic Landmark.
– It’s home to the longest running international dance festival in the country.
– If you were to visit you’d be able to take a look in their archives. Included in their collection are photos, books, costumes, videos and more chronicling 80 years of dance!
– You can visit www.jacobspillow.org to explore the “Virtual Pillow.”
– Each year the Pillow offers more than 200 free performances and other events.
