Pilobolus began in a Dartmouth College dance class in 1971. What developed was a collaborative choreographic process and a unique weight-sharing approach to partnering that gave the young company a non-traditional but powerful new set of skills with which to make dances. The group was immediately acclaimed for its startling mix of humor and invention.

Pilobolus has developed from this ad hoc dance collective into a unique American arts organization with three major branches of activity:

~~> Pilobolus Dance Theatre, a 7-person touring company

~~> The Pilobolus Institute, an umbrella for educational programming

~~> Pilobolus Creative Services, an administrative structure allowing coordination of creative activities with the community

Today Pilobolus is recognized as a major American dance company of international influence.
