my introduction to Jacob's Pillow - a wonderful milieu for marinating dance and dancers. what a wonderful experience it must be for the students who learn and perform a dance in a week.

This is a 74-minute documentary about dance produced in 2012.
Founded in the 1930s by visionary dance pioneer Ted Shawn on a farm in Becket, Massachusetts, Jacob's Pillow is a dance center, school and performance space.
It is an idyllic mecca for artists and audiences from around the world---a place where dance in all its forms from ballet to jazz to contemporary is studied, created, performed and celebrated.
It is a gripping and fascinating documentary.

Fascinating but a bit too much background. Would be better to concentrate on fewer companies. Or make the show in 2 chapters.
