Summer Dance Video at Jacob’s Pillow

Summer is here, and I’m filming and editing from Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in the Berkshires while my team films and edits in New York. Blake’s Barn, where our Pillow video offices and archives are, was renovated and expanded this year, and it is an incredible atmosphere!

Every year, I dive back into the Pillow’s archived dance video and receive dance footage from companies around the world. I record narration by Artistic Director Ella Baff and edit the festival overview. This promotional video gives audiences the first look at the exciting dance shows coming to the main theaters at the Pillow. It’s been online for a while, but I thought I’d share it with you again this week, so you can see all of the beautiful dance in store for this summer.

Tons of wonderful and familiar dance artists are coming to Jacob’s Pillow this summer, and Christopher and I can’t wait to make photos and video with them all! Check out the festival online, buy your tickets now and be sure to say hi when you visit.

Bonus Dance Video: Farewell, Cedar Lake

Here’s a look at a video we just made – Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet has been such an important company in the dance world and has graced the Pillow stage with remarkable performances. The marketing team and video team made this as a way to say farewell in tribute to their recent final performances at BAM.

We’re going to miss Cedar Lake and their gorgeous dancing.
