Vail Daily letter: Happy anniversary!

We send our cordial greetings on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Vail International Dance Festival.

For the years passed, many leading dancers from the most prestigious ballet and dance companies all over the world had the chance to perform in Vail. Thus the Vail festival made a valuable contribution to the development of international cultural relations.

We had also performed on stage of the magnificent Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in the beautiful environment of Vail. We greatly appreciate the kind hospitality of organizers of the festival and the warm welcome of the Vail public. We cherish our photos with the president of the United States, Gerald Ford, and Mrs. Betty Ford.

From the bottom of our hearts we wish the Vail festival continuous success and many unforgettable encounters with art of ballet, which gives warm feelings and brings people together.

We’ll be happy to meet again.
