Jacoby’s steely strength and Pronk’s fluid hyper-flexiblity defy the usual gender norms of a ballet partnership. They possess a brimming, almost menacing, energy, and the sense that they are daring each other is palpable. It is their unique quality that gave them the courage to do what few dancers dare to even dream about—try their luck at making it on their own, sans-company.

The first thing you notice about the dynamic duo billed as “Jacoby & Pronk’’ is extreme physical beauty: highly arched feet, long and slender limbs, leg extensions that go up to the ear. The very next thing you learn, fortunately, is that Drew Jacoby and Rubinald Pronk also possess the true dancer’s intrinsic talents such as musicality and the glowing energy of artistry. There is stardust behind the shapes. And they have brains and hearts.

Tall, handsome and authoritative, Ms. Jacoby and Mr. Pronk take to the stage with the drop-dead cool of supermodels. The four other dancers in their new program at the Doris Duke Theater at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival here include one celebrity, the American Ballet Theater principal David Hallberg, and yet there’s never any doubt who the two main stars are. The biographical notes say that Dance magazine voted Ms. Jacoby, an American, as the “It” Girl of 2006, and that Mr. Pronk, who is Dutch, was named “Holland’s sexiest ballet dancer ever” by a magazine in the Netherlands. They surely deserve to be prime candidates for other “It” and “sexiest” awards too, and the beauty of their faces and physiques, matched by their evident physical skill, makes you see why they are this year’s Pillow poster couple.
