The mission of Vail Friends Of Dance is to ensure that dancer education is an essential presence  in the community and supports those individuals involved in dance.

Vail Friends of Dance has presented tens of thousands of dollars to dance students and teachers with financial assistance over the past 35+ years.  This ability is the achievement of which we are most proud!

In our community there are many activity options for children. To be a dancer, a child must be passionate and focused. Not only must they take several classes a week, but the most serious challenge is that when they reach a certain age, it requires a truly dedicated student to continue dance studies versus other activities.

We are dedicated to supporting students who simply need assistance paying for their classes at the VVAD, as well as those students that have taken dance to the next level as a Vail Youth Ballet Company dancer.
