See the Sixth Annual Vedauwoo Vertical Dance This Weekend [VIDEO]

Do you like to climb the rocks at Vedauwoo? Have you ever danced on them?

This weekend, students from the University of Wyoming perform the sixth annual Vedauwoo Vertical Dance at Box Canyon. Performances will be at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Tickets cost seven dollars and patrons are encouraged to buy tickets in advance as space is limited. Buy them online at www.uwyo.edu/finearts, by calling (307) 766-6666 or at the Fine Arts Box Office in Laramie.
