Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater


Artistic Director Damian Woetzel peels back the curtain and invites audiences to get UpClose to the inner workings and collaboration that goes into creating new choreography and debut performances in Vail each summer. Artists-in-Residence, Roman Mejia of New York City Ballet, and choreographer and dancer Caili Quan, join a range of Festival artists in sharing their process and their creative sensibilities in a special evening that combines rehearsal style performances with interviews and commentary.
