Vail Dance Festival ReMix NYC

Vail-NYCReMix   

Nov. 3-6, 2016

In Damian Woetzel’s tenth year as Artistic Director of the Vail Dance Festival, City Center presented three programs and an UpClose performance channeling the spirit of our acclaimed summer dance event in the Rocky Mountains. Read the review here.

The event included Sara Mearns performing Ratmansky's Fandago, hailed by The New York Times as the dance of 2016: "And in November, the illustrious Sara Mearns danced the New York premiere of Mr. Ratmansky’s ballerina solo “Fandango” (created for Wendy Whelan in 2010 at the Vail International Dance Festival, to Boccherini music). Ms. Mearns blazed; her musicality electrified. If I had to choose one 2016 performance by one dancer, this would be the one." — Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times
