Founded in the 1930s by visionary dance pioneer Ted Shawn in the Berkshires region of Massachusetts, Jacob’s Pillow is an idyllic mecca for artists and audiences from around the world, a place where dance in all its forms is performed, studied, created, and celebrated. Jacob’s Pillow is also the only dance presenter to receive the prestigious National Medal of Arts.
