You may remember that my documentary about Vail International Dance FestivalThe Altitude of Dance – premiered on Rocky Mountain PBS a few months ago. We still have hopes that it will show in New York City and beyond, and I am happy to say my team and I have flown back to Colorado to film the festival again this summer. It’s opening week and we just arrived and started shooting last weekend!

For the past three years I have created a 30-second commercial to help promote Vail International Dance Festival.  The festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary season, and if you can’t visit in person you can get a taste of the dance performances and stars of the festival from this commercial. The festival is unique, inspiring and inventive, and in the mountains, it’s truly a magical place.
