Opening Night Dance Video at Vail Dance Festival | Alonzo King LINES Ballet, ABT & More!
It’s that time of year! We’re back at Vail Dance Festival!
Every summer, I spend two weeks in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains filming and editing videos for Vail Dance Festival. I love it here!!! It’s my happy place. I grew up in Colorado, so I’m a Colorado girl at heart!!
My team and I live mixed to the lawn of the amphitheater to make an even better experience for the audience. It was amazing!!!
One of my favorite things about Vail Dance Festival is the collaborations between artists from different companies. It’s incredible to watch the dancers work together and create. It’s so special that the audience is able to watch some of the top dancers and choreographers in the world take the stage together. SO fun!!
These are some videos from Opening Night. Enjoy!
Alonzo King LINES Ballet
Alonzo King LINES Ballet brought the audience to their feet after they performed this piece titled PROPELLED HEART.
