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

New,different show this year, always splendid, and more juggling than hi chair stuff this time. The bolos and hat + string juggle combo were especially fun. Can't help but think there is some abuse going on when one tiny (young) girl is made to balance on one arm. You could see she was struggling and we all felt for her. Aerial and bike events were very pleasing.

Kinda a waste of time...nothing really special about this circus that hasn't been done elsewhere in shows like Cirque de Soliel or Ringling Bros. These acts did not look well rehearsed. A couple good contortionist and aerial acts.
