The Berkshire Pulse mission is to build and strengthen community life through diverse and accessible programming in performing, movement and creative arts. By promoting the participation in these educational and health sustaining activities, we enrich the lives of families and individuals of all ages throughout the region.

Berkshire Pulse is a dynamic, welcoming, nonprofit dance, world music and movement arts education center located in downtown Housatonic, Massachusetts.

Our year-round programming provides children, teens and adults the opportunity to engage in the joys of movement, music and performance, while experiencing the rewards of community involvement and fitness, plus the vast benefits of artistic exploration and expression.

High-caliber, professional teaching artists offer ongoing classes and workshops from beginner to advanced levels in Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Creative Dance, Choreography, Musical Theater, Tap, African Dance, Flamenco, Latin Dance, Scottish Folk Dance, World Music Percussion, Hip Hop, Cardio Groove, Tai Chi, Yoga, Pilates and other programs that promote happiness, health and spiritual/emotional well-being.

We are grateful to receive support from The Massachusetts Cultural Council and The National Endowment for the Arts.
