In any case, tomorrow will bring a quiet day starting with my organically sensitive, low stress, user-friendly Company class and a few rehearsals held in the Vail Mountain School's gym. It's officially a day off for the dancers, but many will choose to adjust to the 8,000+ feet of altitude with technique class. I'll be bringing Ezra a beer.
It's good to be back in Vail. Artistic Director of the Festival, Damian Woetzel, has built quite a following for his fresh and innovative programming. PNB was one of the first companies he brought to the valley under his leadership. The festival is now regarded as one of the country's top summer hot spots for dance. Check out
Audiences in Vail are great. I can't forget the roar we heard after performing Twyla Thap's Nine Sinatra Songs four years ago. Seeing peers from the dance community is part of the fun. The Paul Taylor Dance Company and Larry Keigwin Dance will be here along with Savion Glover and guest stars from NYCB, Royal Ballet, Boston Ballet, and American Ballet Theater. The New York Philharmonic performs tomorrow night. We are in for an exciting time here. More to come soon. -- Peter Boal
