Test Your Dance History Knowledge

May 24, 2015

In the last few months, you’ve probably taken a lot of tests—the SATs, AP exams—and you’re likely knee-deep in finals prep. But today’s a holiday! So whaddya say you take a break from all that studying and…go take another test?! I promise you’ll like this one.

The fine folks at Jacob’s Pillow launched a new version of their archival site, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive. It’s chock-full of rare dance footage straight from the legendary summer dance festival site—spanning everything from clips of José Limón in the 1940s to Kidd Pivot just a few years ago. The site also includes a pretty challenging guessing game for true dance enthusiasts (OK, nerds). Test your knowledge as many times as you’d like here (each time you play is different!), and then get lost in all the videos. It’ll be a wonderful holiday treat.
