Each year the Vail International Dance Festival, helmed by former New York City Ballet principal Damian Woetzel, presents a festival of dance stars in Vail, CO, from July 27 through August 10.
Vail's programming regularly features top ballet dancers from around the country, and this year's artist in residence will be none other than soon-to-retire Pacific Northwest Ballet principal Carla Körbes. Other ballet stars include New York City Ballet's Tiler Peck and Sara Mearns, American Ballet Theatre's Misty Copeland, Isabella Boylston and Herman Cornejo, and Boston Ballet's Misa Kuranaga and Jeffrey Cirio. Former New York City Ballet principal Wendy Whelan will also perform.
In the "Now: Premieres" series, choreographers Silas Riener and Rashaun Mitchell will create new work for both Philadelphia's BalletX and a group of NYCB dancers including Lauren Lovette, Jared Angle, Chase Finlay and Zachary Catazaro.
