Warning you are entering a dance nerd zone!

For the next three months I will be living and working at Jacob’s Pillow – the longest running dance festival in the USA and probably the most famous in the world. It is proving a pretty great experience so far with new artists and students arriving each week, as well as the huge team of interns, fellows, apprentices and staff.

At my new home – Blake’s Barn, The Jacob’s Pillow Archives.

Over the summer I will be writing a weekly blog for thewonderfulworldofdance Please take a look – it is full of fabulous nerdy things!

A magical setting – The Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out Stage.

Here is a glimpse into some of the things I have been working on – an original poster for the Denishawn Company from 1926 and a costume for dancer Barton Mumaw from the 1930s.
