Detroit’s House of Jit and A Lady In The House Dance Company’s Nubian Néné perform in a shared program on the outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage, offering a look into the world of Jit, a regional social dance from Detroit marked by acrobatic flips and kicks, drops and spins and feet that hit the air at high speed.

House of Jit, making its Pillow debut, is a collective whose founder, Mike Manson, was featured on the television show So You Think You Can Dance, and who has performed around the world. For Northeast audiences, this is a rare opportunity to enjoy House of Jit’s unmatched style live, as the group works to spread the Detroit Jit culture into the mainstream.

Internationally acclaimed dancers, Detroit’s House of Jit and A Lady In The House Dance Company’s Nubian Néné perform in a shared program of house dance styles.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
