Hello Everyone!

I am currently interning at the Archives at Jacob's Pillow, and was looking to spend my day off visiting places in the MA or NY area that are are related to dance history.
We have visited The National Museum of Dance and will possibly visit Kaatsbaan.
Does anyone recommend other places to go for a dance historian?! Even a small place with a tidbit of dance history would thrill me.

Thanks so much for your suggestions!

Bennington College in southern Vermont is nearby. It's the site of the Bennington School of Dance in the 1930s, with Martha Graham and many other notables. Here's a feature story from their web site about that history:

Here's the college's main site with info about their location, etc.:
