Royal Winnipeg Ballet at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival

Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet will be participating in the 80th anniversary of the Jacob's Pillow Dance festival which is to be held between August 1-5, 2012.


Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival was the platform used by Royal Winnipeg Ballet to launch themselves internationally in 1964.

This year RWB will be performing three unique pieces, Peter Quanz’s In Tandem, the pas de deux from As Above So Below by acclaimed choreographer Mark Godden, and Carmina Burana by world-renowned artist Mauricio Wainrot.

Jacob's Pillow Dance festival was founded in 1933 by modern dance pioneer Ted Shawn. This was founded as a retreat for his company of dancers. Jacob's Pillow has been the mecca of dance for eight decades and its the longest-running dance festival in America.
