Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival

Founded in 2012, USC Kaufman is a world-class art school at the forefront of developing dancers, choreographers and dance leaders for the future through a comprehensive BFA program at a premier research institution. Dancers from the BFA program will perform The outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage in their Pillow Debut.

The Kaufman community is home to award-winning faculty artists and Artists in Residence and includes the repertory of several iconic choreographers, including Jiří Kylián, Ohad Naharin, and Crystal Pite.

BFA dancers also study and work with an ever-expanding roster of Visiting Artists, such as Tessandra Chavez, Peter Chu, Tyce Diorio, Justin Peck, Max Pham, Dani Rowe, Caili Quan, Toyin Sogunro, Spenser Theberge, Doug Varone, and Yin Yue.

Graduates of the BFA program have secured contracts with international dance companies, Broadway productions, mega Pop music artists, and cruise ships.

Kaufman alums have performed with Ballet Austin, Ballet BC, Ballet Hispánico, Ballets Jazz Montréal, BalletX, Complexions Contemporary Ballet, Gibney Company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Joffrey Ballet, LA Dance Project, Oregon Ballet Theatre, RUBBERBAND and Staatsballet Berlin, among others.

Alumni have recently danced at the Academy Awards and Super Bowl, in movies and commercials, at Coachella and other music festivals, and on tour with artists like Kali Uchis, Olivia Rodrigo and Jennifer Lopez.

BFA dancers also pursue careers in choreography, arts administration, marketing, business, digital technology, and dance science, forging new understanding around what dance can be and do in the world.

This performance includes a “Choose What You Pay” ticketing option, with a suggested ticket price of $25.

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.
