Community Arts Access

CAA 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 during  the 2016 season to further the Festival’s commitment to making the arts accessible and available to anyone, and expose the art of dance to new audiences. CAA’s mission is to provide complimentary access to individuals eliminating socioeconomic barriers to access. This program builds on an existing Vail Dance Festival outreach programs, which offer free performance tickets to local children. Festival tickets are distributed through local partners and offer premier seating throughout the season at both Festival venues, Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater and the Vilar Performing Arts Center.
