2016 Schedule of Events
Join us in Vail, Colorado from July 30 through August 13 for the 2016 Vail International Dance Festival. Dates and schedule have been announced!
The 2016 Festival kicks off with an evening featuring an extraordinary range of artists from the Memphis jookin' virtuoso Lil Buck to American Ballet Theatre's exquisite ballerina Isabella Boylston who leads this year's Festival as Artist-in-Residence. This performance launches the 10th anniversary season of Artistic Director Damian Woetzel, whom The New York Times calls, “…one of the foremost impresarios of American dance.”
Performance Underwritten by Lisa Tannebaum & Don Brownstein
