The School at Jacob’s Pillow Recruitment Tour includes Master Classes led by Pillow artists in various cities as well as Festival/Conference/International Workshop opportunities to meet staff and artists. Join us at an event above to meet Pillow artists, alumni, and staff, gain audition experience, and learn about the experience of living and training on the historic grounds of Jacob’s Pillow.

One or more internationally acclaimed Pillow artists lead inspirational experiences mirroring The School’s professional classes and rehearsals. Expect a fast-paced class with emphasis on a range of combinations related to the techniques and artistic expectations of the specified program. Parents, teachers, and friends are not permitted to observe.

Please arrive one hour before the Master Class to check-in and register.
