Upcoming Events

by Aisha Cruise

July is the time of cookouts, fireworks, and fabulous outdoor dance.  Get out and see some of these performances!

June 15- August 23 
Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival
Jacob's Pillow is in full swing, and with performances Wednesday through Sunday every week this summer, we're spoiled for choice with amazing companies.  So here are some of the better kept secrets about performances at the Pillow.

The Inside/Out series takes place on the Henry J. Leir stage Wednesday-Saturday at 6:15pm every week of the festival, and it is completely FREE!  In case of inclement weather, the event is moved to a small indoor performance space, so be sure to call ahead if it looks like rain.  

At every Friday performance, a limited number of tickets are sold to individuals under 35 for just $19.  Tickets sell out fast, so if there's something you're dying to see, call the box office to reserve your tickets ASAP!

July 6th @ 8pm
"Transitions" - An Evening of Tap Dance
Hey New York!  Don't miss another chance to see the amazing Ryan Casey along with Kelly Kaleta and a host of lovely ladies at the Marjorie S. Dean Little Theatre!

July 8th-13th
Tap City
It's that time of year again when tap dancing takes over New York City!  There are tons of events from boat rides to talks to performances for you to take in.  You might even catch our own Nicole Harris tapping in Times Square on Saturday, July 13th!
