July 26, 2009 — With everyone exercising a renewed caution when it comes to spending money these days, it's comforting to know that there are still some legitimate bargains to be had in these challenging times, some of which just keep getting better.
The Vail International Dance Festival's popular Performance Plus Pass is the perfect example, with more shows and more savings, offering dance fans eight shows for the price of five.
Priced at $85 per pass, Performance Plus provides holders with one General Admission lawn seat for all eight 2009 Dance Festival performances hosted at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater om Vail. In addition, the Festival is offering a Student Performance Plus Pass for just $55.
"The Performance Plus Pass is the perfect way to experience the magic of the Vail International Dance Festival for an incredibly
affordable price," said Dance Festival director Damain Woetzel. "There's nothing like sitting on the lawn at the Ford Amphitheater on a beautiful summer night with the world's best dancers on stage."
The Performance Plus Passes are not valid for the festival performances at the Vilar Performing Arts Center as there is no General Admission seating for those shows. Passes are non-transferable.
In addition to the initial savings of $43 on individual General Admission tickets priced at $9 and/or $17 apiece, the Performance Plus Pass will also allow the holder to upgrade to a reserved seat, if available, one hour prior to the start of each performance, for no additional charge. Reserved seats are priced from $20-$85 apiece, depending on the performance.
Along with the financial advantages, Performance Plus will also
entitle the holder to a $10 discount on the purchase of a bottle of wine, with a limit of one bottle per show.
The 2009 Vail International Dance Festival gets underway July 27 at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater with a special performance with tap legend Savion Glover, along with the Bare Soundz dancers, and accompanied by jazz quartet, The Otherz.
Other Ford Amphitheater performances will include the Aug. 1 Vail
debut of Miami City Ballet, the Aug. 2 mixed bill Festival Highlights Spectacular, Dance for $20.09 on Aug. 4, the heralded return of Morphoses /The Wheeldon Company on Aug. 7, the popular International Evenings of Dance on Aug. 8-9 and an all star evening of ballroom dancing, dubbed "Ballroom's Best", on Aug. 10.
In addition to the Performance Plus Pass, the Vail International Dance Festival also features a variety of other series passes, including the Center Stage Pass, which offers reserved seating for all Festival performances and the UpClose Series Pass, that provides discounted seating for the trio of UpClose performances at the Vilar Performing Arts Center.
