The Vail Dance Festival is looking for a group of dance enthusiasts to join the Festival team as Festival Ambassadors. Ambassadors will act as stewards to the Festival working to spread the word about the Festival and educating the community about the programming.

This position is an opportunity for individuals in high school (completed freshman, sophomore, junior or senior year) to be involved with the Vail Dance Festival and stand up as leaders and representatives. Being detail-oriented, time-efficient, and well organized, as well as keeping a positive and joyful mindset will be crucial. Ambassadors will work closely with Festival staff and will be considered an integral part of the overall success of the Festival.
The commitment is 40 hours and can be completed prior to and during the Festival. All participants will receive a Festival t-shirt and a Student Performance Plus Pass.
*New for 2021, the Junior Ambassador Program is open to current 7th & 8th-grade students (completed 7th or 8th grade).
