Vail Dance Festival Membership Benefits

The Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater and Vilar Performing Arts Center have been home to hundreds of unparalleled Vail Dance Festival performances, ranging from the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in 1989 to New York City Ballet MOVES in 2011. The success of the Festival and its programming is made possible by the generous support of patrons, volunteers and community sponsors who donate and underwrite the cost of our various programs. Ticket sales account for only one-third of what it takes to produce top dance programming for more than 20,000 Vail Valley residents, guests and students each year.
