Early programming information on the 2011 Vail Dance Festival is included in the first of what I'm sure will be many fund-raising letters:

*Dates are July 31 - August 13, 2011
*World premiere by Christopher Wheeldon
*International Evenings of Dance August 5 & 6
*Ballroom, more ballet premieres, Master classes, Dancing in the Streets, etc.

The Festival will again be directed by Damian Woetzel.

I've gone to the International Evenings in 2010 and 2009 and they're quite wonderful.

No information on their web site yet, but I assume they'll get something posted soon: http://www.vaildance.org/

I saw Damian Woetzel at Fall for Dance (he was seated a row or so over from me.) Maybe he was scouting for Vail?

Last year the dancers at the International Evenings were quite impressive:
ABT: Herman Cornejo and Daniil Simkin
Alvin Ailey: Clifton Brown, Jamar Roberts, Matthew Rushing
Boston: Misa Kuranaga
NYCB: Tiler Peck, Wendy Whelan, Joaquin De Lux, Albert Evans, Robert Fairchild
PNB: Carla Korbes
Royal: Sarah Lamb, Eric Underwood
Royal Danish: Hilary Guswiler, Alban Lendorf
Freelance: Sokvannara Sar

They did 14 small ensemble pieces and excerpts. Very nice for a summer festival. Great sightlines from anywhere in the reserved seating covered outdoor theater. A steeply sloped lawn area was packed.

The Festival also does all sorts of community things during the day, and evenings with ballroom and other genres.

Woetzel also organized the recent dance program at the White House.

Gorgeous rehearsal videos from VAIL'S International Evenings of Dance last week.

Damian Woetzel has the eye for helping build wonderful future partnerships between dancers from different companies:

Good to see Cornejo has recovered from his injury. If those interesting menage jumps are any indication he has healed quite well. Wow!
