The Magic of Vail Dance Festival on Instagram

Every year, Vail International Dance Festival in Vail, Colorado plays host to some of our all-time favorite dancers and choreographers. The rep is always incredible, as is the location—the picturesque mountains, flowers and fields of Vail are a stunning backdrop for this event. This year was no exception, with plenty of new premieres (seven, to be exact) and lots of familiar faces. We've rounded up the best Instagram videos from the festival, so if you didn't make it out to Colorado, you can still witness the #awesomeness of these dancers.
