AVON — The Vail Dance Festival opened its exclusive Fan Club pre-sale ticketing to its Fan Club members on Tuesday, Feb. 13.

The 30th anniversary season will take place in Vail from July 28 to Aug. 11. General ticket sales open to the public on Tuesday, Feb. 20.

The Vail Dance Festival will celebrate its 30th year with a season of newly commissioned choreography and music, highlighting festival debuts by acclaimed companies and dancers who join an ever-expanding team of returning artists. In the spirit of pioneering collaborations at Vail, the season is designed to give dancers and musicians the opportunity to experiment in new forms and with new partners.

This year, the Dance Festival will feature seven new commissions including a work by New York City Ballet resident choreographer Justin Peck, set to a new composition by the festival's Leonard Bernstein composer-in-residence, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Caroline Shaw.
