The Vail International Dance Festival returns for its 28th season.

Vail International Dance Festival

Every year the Vail International Dance Festival brings renowned dance companies and performers from all over the world to Vail. This year the two-week festival features American Ballet Theater performer Isabella Boylston and will run from July 30 through August 13. It is also the 10th anniversary with Damian Woetzel as Artistic Director. There will be a special fundraising event on August 3rd. UpClose is a rehearsal-style performance focusing on the artists who make Vail their collaborative home every summer. The performance will be followed by an exclusive artist dinner at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek. Tickets to the dinner will be $200 and can be purchased through the box office.

The festival performances are held mainly at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. Some performances will be held at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek. Special events are also being featured at the Avon Performance Pavillion at Nottingham Park. Tickets are still available for most performances.
