Dear Vail Dance Festival Community,
It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you of the cancelation of the 2020 Vail Dance Festival. This difficult decision was made in the interest of the safety and well-being of artists, staff and audiences due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We had hoped to be able to present some version of the Festival this summer, but with great reluctance have now concluded that it is simply not safe to do so. The Festival is a place of intense collaboration among our artists, and we look forward to the creative energy that will be more powerful than ever when we are all able to be together again next summer.” - Damian Woetzel, Artistic Director
Preparations are already underway for the return of live performances in the summer of 2021, with Opening Night scheduled for July 30th.
We are also preparing to host a digital version of the Festival during the planned July 31 - Aug 11 dates, which will include unique performances and commissions from past Vail seasons, as well as online forums and educational content featuring dance and music luminaries associated with the Festival. More information will be provided on vaildance.org and our social channels in the coming weeks.
"It is difficult to think about not having the Festival this summer in Vail, but we will continue to connect through dance from a distance until we can gather again in person. We are committed to making decisions this year to protect the health and well-being of our community in the short-term while ensuring the future viability of this incredible Festival for years to come." - Sarah Johnson, Vail Valley Foundation Senior Vice President for Education & the Arts
