ANNUAL GIVING

Throughout its 35-year history the Vail Dance Festival has provided an inspiring environment in which diverse dancers, choreographers, and musicians share creative time & space, fuel each other artistically, and present work that challenges & showcases their talent. None of which would be possible without the support of our dedicated donors. Ticket sales only cover 28% of our operating expenses. All gifts large and small contribute to our success.
