The Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival is America’s longest-running dance festival, and attracts performers representing the international dance community. Though the festival takes place throughout the summer of 2013, the time to plan for it is now. Tickets go on sale to members and subscribers of the festival in January, and to the public in April.
On January 16th, the 2013 artist pages for the festival will post online for your planning convenience. Feel free to contact us here at Hampton Terrace at any time in your travel planning, either by phone (800.203.0656) or check availability online at our homepage.
The preview listings of performances are available now at their website (http://www.jacobspillow.org/festival/) and include such highlights as:
• JUNE 19-23, DANCE THEATRE OF HARLEM The preeminent American dance company opens the Festival with The Lark Ascending by Alvin Ailey, George Balanchine’s masterwork Agon, and more.
• JUNE 26-30, COMPAGNIE KÄFIG The sold-out hip-hop show of 2012 returns! Experience the virtuosity, humor, and irresistible energy of this unique production from Brazil and France. Also: LEO What if the laws of gravity ceased to exist? From Berlin, imaginative movement, physical theatre, and fantastical video. A gem for all ages.
• JULY 3-7, CEDAR LAKE CONTEMPORARY BALLET Sleek, strong, and daringly athletic–the dancers of Cedar Lake are phenomenal talents. The New York Times calls them “the country’s most innovative contemporary ballet troupe.”
Plan now – and relax when you arrive, having reserved your rooms and planned your activities in advance!
