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. The Ambassador’s commitment will require a hands-on approach, comfort in speaking to the general public, and a greater understanding of the Festival’s history and 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.


The Junior Ambassador Program is open to current 7th & 8th-grade students (completed 7th or 8th grade in Spring 2023).
