Ballet Blast

The Vail International Dance Festival welcomes the Compañía Nacional de Danza de México for the first time, joined by Colorado Ballet, BalletX, a selection of international ballet stars, and another Festival newcomer, New York’s nascent BalletCollective – all brought together for a diverse evening of ballet, from classic to contemporary, with music by the cutting edge string quartet, Brooklyn Rider. 

The evening will feature choreography ranging from19th century classics, to celebrated new 21st century works. Among the highlights will be the debut of New York City Ballet dancer Tiler Peck in George Balanchine’s sublime Duo Concertant*.
