Vail International Dance Festival set to hit NYC

Vail Dance Festival: ReMix NYC at City CenterIn late spring, Vail International Dance Festival announced that it would be bringing its festivities across the country to Manhattan this fall. As part of New York City Center’s 2016-17 season programming, it will present “Vail Dance Festival: ReMix NYC” on November 3-6.


Performances will reportedly feature many of the dancers and artistic works that have become associated with the Colorado-based festival over the past decade of Damian Woetzel’s directorship.


Performers include Isabella Boylston and Herman Cornejo of American Ballet Theatre; Robert Fairchild, Sara Mearns and Tiler Peck of New York City Ballet; the tango star Gabriel Missé; the MacArthur recipient and tap dancer Michelle Dorrance; and Brian Brooks, the inaugural Choreographer in Residence at Chicago’s Harris Theater for Music and Dance.


Other artists in the lineup are Lil Buck, Carla Espinoza, Carla Körbes, Misa Kuranaga, Ron Myles, Calvin Royal III, Matthew Rushing, Fang-Yi Sheu and Wendy Whelan. Plus, Keigwin + Company will perform with musicians, including Scott Borg, Catalyst Quartet, Kurt Crowley, Kate Davis, members of FLUX Quartet, Cameron Grant, Sandeep Das, JP Jofre, Cristina Pato, Wu Tong and special guest Yo-Yo Ma on opening night (November 3.)
