Absolutely wonderful, as always. I particularly enjoyed the ballet after the second intermission (Gershwin). The first programs were wonderful except for the outfits, about as unflattering as they come.

The Smuin Ballet was fantastic! The costumes and music just added to the fabulous numbers. The Smuin dancers provide a combination ballet, modern dance and tap. The seats were the best, literally. Thank you GoldStar for bringing these types of...continued

Smuin Ballet was excellent. XXcentric had 3 performances with 2 intermissions. The first one, "everything but the kitchen sink," was a lively modern ballet. The second one with music from Cape Verde was my favorite and it was much closer to...continued

i particularly enjoyed the Vivaldi and Gershwin pieces--vastly different from one another. The Latino music and vocal background in the second piece was not quite as much to my liking.

The Smuin Ballet always does a great job with a variety of dances including classical, traditional, and modern. Costumes are lovely and props are minimal but effective. Goldstar seats were in the back center but fine, unless there's a tall head in...continued

As always, a great evening with Smuin Ballet, but I use admit I enjoyed the XXtreme performance in March more. I love the Mt View venue - convenient location, good parking, good eating after the show.

I enjoyed the third segment with the Gershwin review. The first two segments didn't appeal to me at all.
