COMMUNITY ARTS ACCESS (CAA)


 

The Vail Dance Festival partners with cross-sector community organizations including non-profit, educational, religious, governmental, and other agencies to distribute free tickets to each of the world-class performances throughout the course of the Festival. This program was introduced in 2016 to further the Festival’s commitment to making the arts accessible and available to everyone and expose the art of dance to new audiences. This program builds on existing Vail Dance Festival outreach programs, which offer free lawn tickets for children 12 and under as well as discounted lawn tickets for students and faculty. Furthermore, we dedicate the Dance for $20.22 performance as an evening devoted to arts accessibility by capping ticket prices at $20.22 for pavilion seats and $10.22 for lawn seats.
