VAIL ” Some of ballroom’s best will take their high stepping moves to the heart of Vail Village and Beaver Creek Village Saturday and Sunday as the Vail International Dance Festival’s free Village Vignettes take the festival to the streets.

Eulia Baranovsky and her partner Steven Dougherty will stage a pair of free short performances for residents and guests on Saturday at noon near the Covered Bridge in Vail Village and again on Sunday, also at noon, on the upper plaza of Beaver Creek Village. The two will join four other international ballroom couples on Saturday, Aug. 11 for a fiery reprise of Ballroom’s Best at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater, presented by East-West Partners, in conjunction with the 2007 Dance Festival.

Baranovsky and Dougherty have been dancing together for four years, competing in the American Style Ballroom Division. They each bring to their partnership prior national and regional championship titles in both the American Ballroom and International Standard styles. Together, they have become U.S. and World finalists and currently rank among the top three couples in the country.

Tickets for the remaining Vail International Dance Festival performances are still available online at or by calling 845-TIXS (8497) or 1-888-920-ARTS (2787). Tickets are priced from $17-$85.
