Dancers, musicians, choreographers and performing arts production professionals are experiencing catastrophic loss due to the cancelation of all performance opportunities for the foreseeable future. The Vail Dance Festival is stepping up to provide disaster and hardship relief grants to those facing dire financial hardship due to COVID-19 through our Artist Relief Fund. 

Individually contracted artists and production team members who have participated in Festival performances since 2018 are eligible for application for relief from this fund, including those we had hoped to join us in Vail this summer and those who are a part of the 2020 Digital Edition. Due to the magnitude of this crisis and the impact on the performing arts, we anticipate more requests for funding than there are funds to distribute.

APPLICATIONS ARE CLOSED. We will notify individuals that have qualified for funds on October 9 and funds will be distributed by October 16.
