Jacob’s Pillow Bids A Fun Farewell To The Season
Amy Krzanik reports from Becket. Even if you’re not a professional dancer, the Jacob’s Pillow finale party is the place to get loose and let your hair down. Following a performance by either LeeSaar The Company in the Doris Duke Theatre or the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet in the Ted Shawn Theatre, guests to the wrap-up event on August 23 were treated to hot chocolate, coffee and an ample array of desserts provided by Chocolate Springs, Six Depot, Haven, The Dream Away, and Becket Bakehouse. Dancers joined guests under the tent post-performance to mingle and sip cocktails such as the special themed Finale Fizz. Down in the Bakalar Studio, DJ BFG found the crowd needed no convincing to turn the entire studio space into one wild dance floor, and folks of all ages and abilities joined together in a fun farewell to another stellar season. Shown left, the party scene inside the Bakalar Studio.
