About the Vail Dance Festival
The Colorado Rocky Mountains serve as the backdrop each summer as Vail plays host to a collection of the world’s finest dancers.
Under the artistic direction of Damian Woetzel, the Vail Dance Festival, now in its 30th year, has become renowned for its artistic excellence, unique programming, commissioned works and one-of-a-kind artistic collaborations. More than 20,000 people from around the world descend each summer on Vail for the festival’s two-week residency.
In addition to regular performances, the festival features robust community programming and education events, drawing on its roster of visiting artists, in addition to year-round personnel who focus on arts education in the Vail Valley.
In the fall of 2016, the Vail Dance Festival presented for the first time a season outside of its Colorado-base, with a series of acclaimed performances at New York City Center entitled Vail Dance Festival: ReMix NYC.
The Vail Dance Festival is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation. For more information, visit http://www.vaildance.org.

It’s fitting that Eagle County is proceeding through its reopening phases of COVID-19 in an analogy to ski run difficulties — green to blue to black. Monday marks the transition from the green beginner phase to the blue intermediate phase.
