Eye Pieces of Vail is a proud community sponsor of the Vail International Dance Festival.

Each Summer, for the first two weeks of August, Vail welcomes the World’s finest performing companies and dancers to the stage at Ford Ampitheater and Vilar Performing Arts Center. This year, creative director Damian Woetzel celebrates his 11th and final year with the festival. Under his direction, and through the support of Vail Valley Foundation, the festival has continued to bring an amazing variety of dance styles, performed by the best dancers in the world, year after year.

Nightly performances feature world premieres, resurrected classics, and favorite choreography from past to present. Visitors can expect to see classic pas de deux and solos from well known Ballets like Swan Lake and Romeo & Juliet danced by principals and prima ballerinas like Isabella Boylston, Misty Copeland, and Tiler Peck. They’ll also see everything from tap dancing from Dorrance Dance, Modern dance from Martha Graham, to Memphis Jookin’ from Lil’ Buck & Ron Myles — sometimes all in the same night.

Bring the family, pack a picnic, and experience dance in the amazing setting of the Rocky Mountains. Don’t miss out on this amazing festival happening in Vail through August 12th.
