Opening night at Vail International Dance Festival was absolutely phenomenal this summer. Artistic Director Damian Woetzel had such an amazing, spot-on vision for the dances and dancers in the opening night performance and worked really hard to put this show together.

Our dance video team is so thrilled to be here for the 4th year to capture the festival’s incredible performances. Here’s a taste of the nonstop talent opening night with Lil Buck, Herman Cornejo of American Ballet Theatre, Daniel Ulbricht of New York City Ballet dancing a Larry Keigwin piece, Carla Körbes,Gabriel Missé & Analía Centurión, Lauren Lovette, Tiler Peck and Robbie Fairchild (channeling Gene Kelly) also of New York City Ballet, Lauren Fadeley, Alexander Peters and Jermel Johnson and the rest of Pennsylvania Ballet, BalletX… WOW!!

One of the absolute highlights of the evening was Robbie’s tribute to Gene Kelly, and we’re all obsessed. So we had to share more of the performance with you! Enjoy!!
