Spend your summer dancing!

We are excited to have summer dance intensives for ages 4 to 18 running June through August. Our offerings range in style and genre, from contemporary and choreography, to musical theater, hip hop, and more!


Join our team!

We are seeking an enthusiastic Summer Counselor to assist with daily duties during our Summer Intensive programs in 2023. The Summer Counselor will assist students and teachers throughout daily classes and serve as a liaison between the students and Berkshire Pulse staff.


Moving Life Stories Returns

We're excited to announce two series of Moving Life Stories Workshops in 2023 - at the Pittsfield YMCA and at the Family Resource Center in Great Barrington.

Moving Life Stories (MLS) is a creative movement class created for and geared toward the Berkshire immigrant population and their allies. MLS provides opportunities to share personal journeys, stories, and connections to places past and present through movement games, exercises, dancing, and community building.


Tickets on sale!

We're pleased to announce our annual Spring Celebration will take place on May 27 & 28 at the Daniel Arts Center at Simon's Rock.

A community inspired and uplifted through creative self-expression

We are committed to offering the highest caliber of diverse and accessible arts programming to the people of the Berkshire community. Set in an historic mill building alongside the Housatonic River, our studios uplift students of all ages and backgrounds. With a roster of highly trained and accomplished teaching artists and spacious, inspiring studios, we invite you to join us and explore your unique creative voice.

Land Acknowledgement: It is with gratitude and humility that we acknowledge that we are learning, creating, and gathering on the ancestral homelands of the Muhheaconneok people, who are the indigenous peoples of the land upon which Berkshire Pulse sits. Despite the tremendous hardship of being forced from their land, today their community resides in Wisconsin and is known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Community. We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past and present as we dedicate our resources and privileges to building a more inclusive, equitable, and respectful space for all.

Pulse has never turned away a student for an inability to pay.
