Jacob's Pillow provides a wide range of enriching and educational year-round programs involving dance for some 3,500 Berkshire residents. Children, students, educators, people with special needs, adult learners and dancers from the newcomer to advanced take part in these enjoyable experiences at the Pillow, in schools and at other settings in the community.

Offered during the Festival, programs range from low-cost Morning Classes, Sunday Master Classes with visiting artists, a Families Dance Together at the Pillow class for all levels, to professional development, to residencies in area public schools where dance becomes an innovative way to learn academic material. Pillow artists and staff develop programs that connect participants to the physical, emotional, intellectual and inspirational world of dance.

"I think that Jacob's Pillow is an incredible place. It offers you a great opportunity to learn many new things about dance and the most important thing is that it makes you realize what you really want from life."
- Student of the Jazz/Musical Theatre Dance Program
