One of the great annual events in Dance is the Vail International Dance Festival each year here in Colorado during August! Within the festival this year is the very special Debut of Christopher Wheeldon's new company Morphoses. Kudos to Damian Woetzel, the new Artistic Director of the Vail International Dance Festival, for making this happen here in Colorado and for including our dancers as well. CB is proud to have eight corps de ballet women dancing in Christopher's Dance of the Hours. The debut is is Friday August 10th at 7:30pm in the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. Christopher has invited several dancers from around the world to perform with his company and having seen the preview of his new company last Wednesday Morphoses is destined to be something very special. I am proud that CB is a part of the festival and the debut of Morphoses and I encourage all to make plans to attend each and every year because it is truly a highlight in dance, plus you're guaranteed to see some of the greatest dancers from around the world. Damian announced that Morphoses will return to the festival next your so you might as well start planning now.
