Jacob’s Pillow, the esteemed summer dance festival located in Massachusetts, announced it’s plan to build a year-round studio on the Pillow grounds. The studio will be called the Perles Family Studio in recognition of one of its major donors, the Perles Family Foundation. The studio will house The School as Jacob’s Pillow as well as its pre-professional training programs. In addition, the Pillow hopes to make more residencies available to choreographers. The studio is expected to be completed by the close of the 2017 festival.
