Vail Rec seeks users of new space

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – The Vail Recreation District will open a new community programming space in the town of Vail’s new Lionshead Transit Welcome Center in early February.

The new space will include a multi-purpose room that will serve as a fitness and art studio. The Rec District is seeking professionals who are interested in teaching in the space, which can hold 12 to 20 participants per class. According to the VRD’s Community Programming Director Chad Young, the space is perfect for fitness such as yoga, dance, Pilates (mat) and for a variety of art classes, including ceramics.

Already scheduling the space, the Rec District will offer a TRX suspension training class and yoga, as well as ceramics and drop-in paint-your-own pottery. Many other classes are in the planning stages including African Drumming, for ages 12 and older and an after-school Art Sampler for ages 5 through 12.

“We have been speaking with many local professionals who have expertise they are ready to share with the community,” said Young. “This space will allow us to offer much needed art programming and offer fitness in a format not otherwise available in Vail.”

In addition to the new multi-use room, the Imagination Station will reopen in early February and offer exciting new exhibits for children ages 2 to 12 and their families. Schedules for both the Imagination Station and new community room will be announced soon at

For more information or for those interested in teaching in the new community programming space, contact Chad Young at or call 970-479-2292.
