Becket, Massachusetts dance center Jacob’s Pillow has announced the full schedule for its virtual summer festival.

This spring, Jacob’s Pillow canceled its annual festival for the first time in its 88-year history. Now, Director Pamela Tatge says fans of dance have a virtual option.

“For eight weeks, every Thursday night at 7 p.m. we have a new broadcast," she told WAMC. "And it will be a work, one of the best works from the past 20 years, but there will be new content, wraparound content – including a pre-show talk and a post-show talk with the artists – that really ground the work in today.”

The schedule – which runs from July 7th to August 29th – also features classes and live conversations with leaders in the dance field. You can find more details here.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
