    Founded by dance legend Ted Shawn in 1933, Jacob's Pillow is home to a world-renowned international dance Festival that presents dance annually on three performance stages for nearly three months. The School at Jacob's Pillow encompasses a professional advancement program for dancers and choreographers as well as an Intern Program that trains young professionals in all areas of production and arts administration. The Pillow's rare and extensive Archives, open year-round to the public free of charge, chronicles the art form of dance in film, video, photographs, oral histories, correspondence, books, costumes, posters, audiotapes, and scrapbooks. Jacob's Pillow's year-round Community Programs enrich the lives of children and adults, and are yet another part of the Pillow's cultural legacy. Jacob's Pillow is the first and only dance entity in the United States to be declared a National Historic Landmark for the significance of its contribution to America's culture-past and present. In 2007, it was dedicated as a site on the Upper Housatonic Valley African American Heritage Trail.
