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

For thousands of years, Chinese acrobats have astounded audiences with their practice of the longest-running folk art form in history. In their homeland, they are as revered as prima ballerinas and opera singers are in the West. Marking the 28th year of continuous touring in the United States, the Golden Dragon Acrobats are renowned for performing award-winning acrobatics and traditional dance in programs featuring spectacular costumes and ancient and contemporary theatrical techniques. A show of breathtaking skill and beauty.
Direct from the People’s Republic of China, the Peking Acrobats have toured the world since 1958, mesmerizing audiences with the amazing presentation of their ancient folk art, acrobatics. Carefully selected from the finest schools in China, these gymnasts, jugglers, cyclists, and tumblers transform 2000-year-old athletic disciplines into an all-ages kaleidoscope of entertainment. Always a huge favorite with family audiences, the show is performed amidst all the excitement and pageantry of a Chinese carnival. “The Peking Acrobats regularly passed from the seemingly impossible to the virtually unbelievable” (Los Angeles Times).
