On Friday, October 14 at 5 pm, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in western Massachusetts will break ground on the building of its new Perles Family Studio.

A kickoff to the coming 85th Anniversary Season, the new studio will be the home for The School at Jacob’s Pillow and its esteemed pre-professional training programs. The School’s summer intensive programs include Ballet, Contemporary, Cultural Traditions, and Musical Theatre Dance, each led by dance legends and industry leaders.

Projected to be completed by the end of Festival 2017, the studio will boast a 3,500-square-foot sprung dance floor—almost doubling the space of the Pillow’s current Sommers Studio.
