Memoirs of Blacks in Ballet (MoBBallet) founder Theresa Ruth Howard presents The Pathways to Performance (PTP) Choreographic Program, a new initiative supported by Jacob’s Pillow and The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

MoBBallet created PTP in order to nurture and develop Black ballet choreographers and those of color, providing them with opportunities to create and present their work on prominent stages. This engagement on the Leir Stage will feature a range of newly-commissioned and previous works by five Black choreographers, including a new work by Meredith Rainey developed in the Pillow Lab residency program this spring.

A multi-talented and highly-regarded voice in the field, Howard is a former ballet dancer, curator, scholar, and arts leader with a longstanding connection to Jacob’s Pillow. She founded MoBBallet in 2015 to preserve, promote, and present the historical and present-day contributions of Blacks in ballet.

Following Howard’s work in a Reframing the Narrative residency at the Kennedy Center, her launch of the PTP Choreographic Program at the MoBBallet Symposium led to this most recent collaboration with Jacob’s Pillow.

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.
