The Vail International Dance Festival has released a tantalizing sample of its 2013 performance schedule.  The biggest surprise is ballet rebel of the moment Sergei Polunin. (He blew the dance world’s collective mind with his departure from The Royal Ballet last year.) The Ukrainian-born dancer is slated to appear at one of the program’s International Evenings celebrating talents from around the world.

Other highlights of the festival’s 25th anniversary season (July 28–August 10) include appearances by Pacific Northwest Ballet, Argentinian tango icon Gabriel Misséand and New York City Ballet principals Tiler Peck and Robert Fairchild as artists in residence. World premieres by Paul Taylor, Lil Buck, Larry Keigwin and Brian Brooks will also grace the Vail stages. There will even be a performance devoted to recognizing virtuosic footwork in different dance genres. We can’t wait until the full schedule comes out next month!

Tickets for the VIDF go on sale March 13. More info here
