Dancing At Jacob’’s Pillow: Never Stand Still

Full Episode

Directed by veteran documentary filmmaker Ron Honsa, Dancing at Jacob’s Pillow: Never Stand Still reveals the passion, discipline, and daring of those who choose a life in dance. Performances filmed live at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, interviews with extraordinary artists, rare archival footage, and behind the scenes insights bring dance to life, as Dancing at Jacob’s Pillow: Never Stand Still visits the iconic international nexus for dance: Jacob’s Pillow.

Founded in the 1930s by visionary dance pioneer Ted Shawn on a farm in the Berkshires region of western Massachusetts, today the Pillow is an idyllic mecca for artists and audiences from around the world, a place where dance in all its forms – from ballet to jazz to contemporary – is performed, studied, created and celebrated. Jacob’s Pillow is also the only dance presenter to receive the prestigious National Medal of Arts.
