Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival will host its second annual “Weekend OUT” August 5–7, a weekend full of free events, performances, and tours. This packed schedule of events provides the opportunity for LGBT families, individuals and couples to take advantage of all the Pillow has to offer while meeting and mingling with old and new friends.

Scheduled weekend events include the photography exhibit Annie Leibovitz: DANCE which honors the 30th anniversary of Mark Morris Dance Group; a free performance by the Jazz/Musical Theatre Dance students of The School at Jacob’s Pillow; a free film on the glamorous Paris Opera Ballet star Claude Bessy, and more. “Weekend OUT” will also feature a special behind-the-scenes historic tour of Jacob’s Pillow on Sunday, August 7 at noon, guided by Jacob’s Pillow Director of Preservation, Norton Owen, and focusing on iconic Pillow-founder Ted Shawn, his company of Men Dancers, and his mission to represent strength and masculinity in dance.
