Smuin Ballet breaks the boundaries of traditional dance with this evening of vibrant, innovative works from some of the Bay Area's most exciting choreographers. Choreographer Garrett Ammon unleashes his own take on Tchaikovsky's iconic score in Serenade for Strings, using movement to reflect the composition's intensity and precision. In Objects of Curiosity, Smuin's choregrapher-in-residence Amy Seiwert explores the tensions between desire and restraint, pairing them with a delicate score by Philip Glass and Foday Musa Suso that mirrors her study on stage. The evening concludes with Frankie and Johnny, Michael Smuin's passionate tribute to the legendary Gene Kelly, danced to a soundtrack of some of the biggest names in Latin and mambo music. Learn More

Fantastic! We drove 3 hours to this event and it was worth it! The variety of dancers from amateur children to local church groups to trained adult professionals was awesome. My critiques would be that they did not start on time (30+ minutes late) and no apology was made to the audience, the ticket pick-up was rather cumbersome, and the attire for the Ross Dance Company was inappropriate for a praise/worship dance. That said...I plan to be there in 2011.

I enjoyed the show! It did start rather late and it was entirely too hot no AC at all!!!! But other than that I enjoyed myself and was thrilled with the Winning dancers(F.A.M.E) they deserved it I loved their performance I really got a message...continued
There will also be a guest performance by Ross Dance, a musical performance by Covenant Worship Center’s choir and a live music and dance collaboration with Erik Lee and K2. In addition, during the pre- and post-show, For His Glory, a company from Oregon that specializes in praise dance flags, streamers and other props will have items available for purchase.
