Located in Becket, Massachusetts, Jacob’s Pillow Dance has been an institution in the Berkshires for over 80 years, and its new 6,000-sf dance studio honors this rich history by seamlessly fitting into the arts organization’s well established campus.
The highly flexible design for the new Perles Family Studio incorporates multiple program spaces and functions; It serves as a rehearsal space, instructional space, informal performance space, and a residency venue for visiting programs.
The space provides ample space for dancers, including 40-ft-by-60-ft clear floor space, warm-up space, and in-studio storage. Other features include radiant floors, controlled daylighting, low-velocity displacement ventilation, and professional acoustics.
