Vail International Dance Festival

Sedona Chamber Ballet and Christel Veraart (SeaMuse LLC) are delighted to present Reflections Festival, — a multi-genre exploration of multifaceted aspects of the human collective, that aims to engage renowned composers, musicians, dancers, choreographers, storytellers, filmmakers and actors and make Northern Arizona the home of a word class summer retreat for education, exploration, collaboration and production in the performing and visual arts.

Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival

Celebrating the Very Best in the Performing & Visual Art, we aim to enrich Sedona and Arizona’s cultural life and turn Northern Arizona into the future home of a professional summer retreat in the performing arts, similar to residencies such as the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Tanglewood, Chautauqua, and the Vail International Dance Festival. 

Tanglewood Music Festival

Reflections Festival will pursue artistic endeavors through workshops, commissions, and performances as well as support the research, development and presentation of new productions providing filmed, virtual and live experiences for the local and global audiences. The goal is to establish Sedona as one of the top performing arts destinations in the world. We believe this goal is achievable as Sedona is widely recognized for its magical, natural splendor and has a well- established tourist-based infrastructure.

Reflections Festival will offer workshops that will feature a wide range of extraordinary master teachers for the pre professional and professional student. For the curious, workshops will be offered with varied and stimulating programs for audience members. Whether one is a non-professional musician, dancer or actor wishing specialized instruction, a singer wishing to explore and perform great choral masterworks, or an opera, ballet or theatre lover seeking greater understanding of the art form, Adult Enrichment Workshops will provide superior classroom, solo and ensemble performing arts education, engagement and expansion.

Chautauqua Festival

Furthernore, Reflections Festival will create and showcase short art films that overlap with performance art, written word and visual art forms. The Interdisciplinary Art Films hope to address what unites human kind and enhance the professional artist with a better sense of cross-disciplinary thinking, their own capacity for creativity, and the connections between their body, mind, and spirit. Also we plan to share key festival events live or taped via social media platforms to world audiences.

“ What I am really saying is that you don’t need to do anything, because if you see yourself in the correct way, you are all as much extraordinary phenomenon of nature as trees, clouds, the patterns in running water, the flickering of fire, the arrangement of the stars, and the form of a galaxy.”
