Jacob's Pillow Dance Interactive

Jacob's Pillow Dance Interactive is a new online video collection of Festival artists from 1937 to today.

"Dance Interactive lets you dive in to video clips of iconic Jacob's Pillow performances by Kyle Abraham, Nina Ananiashvili, Savion Glover, Cynthia Gregory, Rennie Harris, Judith Jamison, Bill T. Jones, and many others. Insightful information about the artists complements each video and there's even a game in which you can test your dance knowledge! Even better, the collection includes visually stunning high definition (HD) clips of recent performances and will continue to grow as more videos are added.

These videos, once available only to people who could travel to the Jacob's Pillow Archives in Becket, Massachusetts, are now accessible to the nearly two billion people with internet access worldwide."

You can browse for videos by artist, genre, or era. Genres include ballet, modern, contemporary, tap, cultural, and more.
