Looking to invest more in the school’s commitment to year-round creative development, Jacob’s Pillow Dance, a professional advancement center for dancers, choreographers and dance photographers, built The Perles Family Studio.  The space can accommodate for up to 200 seats and features a private porch overlooking the stage.

One of the main features of the new studio is its radiant floors, low velocity cross ventilation and air cooled variable refrigerant flow heating and cooling system with an outdoor air economizer that Bala designed.  Older studios on the school’s campus did not have the ability to control temperature within their spaces throughout the year, limiting many of their programs to only the warmer months.  This new studio allows the school to expand their year-round programming and attract new students.
