On the heels of its Dance Barre speaker series, the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center expands its dance programming to offer a road trip to Jacob’s Pillow, the “hub and mecca of dance” (TIME) on Saturday, June 23. Packages include round-trip transportation, guided tour and several performances, can be purchased by calling 508-994-2900, online at Zeiterion.org, or at the Zeiterion Box Office. Discounts available to Zeiterion Members. Reservation deadline is Friday, June 1.
The day-long road trip unites local dance enthusiasts to experience dance at the renowned Jacob’s Pillow in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts. The chartered motor coach departs the Zeiterion at 9:00 a.m. and offers a mostly flexible itinerary that includes two ticketed performances to Ragamala Dance Company and Royal Danish Ballet. Optional events and activities include a private tour of Jacob’s Pillow campus, Pre-Show Talk about Ragamala, PillowTalk: Nikolaj Hubbe’s Royal Danish Ballet, Inside/Out Performance, and Pre-Show Talk: Royal Danish Ballet.
“This road trip to Jacob’s Pillow is an exciting opportunity to experience the art of dance not just outside the Zeiterion, but at a beautiful, world-renowned venue,” said Rosemary Gill, Executive Director. “We’ve had great success with Dance Barre, the free pre-show lectureseries. Now we’re taking the next step to further enrich this audience and fortifying our local dance community.”
