A remarkable landmark in the small town of Becket, Jacob's Pillow is a place replete with art, especially the performing arts. An effort initiated by Ted Shawn, the space has proudly been deemed as a National Historical Landmark. It is entirely dedicated to dance and houses a dance school, several dance studios, outdoor spaces as well as performances spaces, including the Ted Shawn Theatre and the Doris Duke Theatre. Jacob's Pillow also houses a cafe, a pub, a bar and a store. The best time to visit this landmark would be during the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival. Check website for details.
