My friend and I visit the Berkshires every year, just to be able to come to Jacob's Pillow 2 nights. We get tickets to both theatres. We always come early, to watch the free Inside Out performances. Every night there is a 30 minute dance at 6:15 pm. With the open stage, sun setting on the mountains, the venue doesn't... More

The best place to see dancers and companies from around the world! Beautiful setting! They offer free shows Wednesday to Saturday throughout the summer. You can bring food and picnic during the shows. The outside stage overlooks the mountains in the background making for a beautiful, natural setting. Lots of history too!

Jacob's Pillow is one of the oldest running dance festival in the USA. This year I had the opportunity to dance again for the second time at this prestigious dance festival with Ensemble Español Spanish Dance Theater. Best place to see a dance performance in the summer time.

For the past 80 years, Jacob's Pillow has been at the epicenter of modern dance in America. Located off a winding road near Becket, Massachusetts in the Berkshires, Jacob's Pillow presents a great summer season of dance by companies from near and far. The grounds are lovely. It is a very special place and highly recommended.

a short half hour drive, watch for the sign as you can easily miss it. what a great experience, if you cannot see the weekend dance, by all means get their rehearsal schedule. it is free and in my opinion the two hours watching was better than seeing it in its final presentation. they work so hard and we were...

Jacob's Pillow is a place one should visit at least once in a lifetime. We've been twice and expect to go back every year from now on. The setting is extraordinary and the dance performances exquisite. The dancers from the American and Boston Ballet companies whom we saw were at the height of their artistic achievement. The close and warm... More

Jacob's Pillow is an amazing place and an amazing project: world-class dance in the middle of nowhere! Intimate spaces and fantastic seating, with a variety of acts that represent the full spectrum of global dance at its most dynamic. However, we've noticed in the past year that the programs have grown shorter and shorter: where once one would have expected... More

Although it can be difficult to get individual tickets persevere and you will succeed. We are not able to subscribe but try each year to get tickets. The ambiance and quality of the performances are outstanding. This year we saw Gauthier Dance and they were marvelous.
