This year Fall for Dance North launched a new travel program designed to introduce friends of the festival to unique dance locales. From July 27–August 1, 2019, FFDN hit the road with 10 dancers lovers to tour the oldest, internationally acclaimed dance festival in the US - Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Becket-MA.
Over the course of 5 days, travellers enjoyed performances from Paul Taylor Dance Company, Caleb Teicher & Company, and Wendy Whelan in a new world premiere by Lucinda Childs, tours of Jacob's Pillow, Tanglewood, and Lumberyard Center for Film and Performing Arts, day trips to MASS MoCA and Hudson-NY, as well as private get togethers with Wendy Whelan and Michelle Dorrance plus exclusive performance chats with dance historian Henning Rübsam.
FFDN does not currently have any upcoming dance trips scheduled. Please reference this page for future opportunities to travel with us.
