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

Amazing! Just when you thought they have reached the limits of physics and human capability, they pull off one more stretch, or one more leap, or one more something or another that just blows you away. Makes Cirque Soleil look like the junior league. Loved it! Will go again next year, and will bring friends. Great for kids too!

Amazing all around. Very well paced with excellent transitions between acts. They were all spectacular. There were a few re-dos yet these are humans performing very difficult tasks. The music was great too. Balcony seats are wonderful esp....continued
Direct from China, the Peking Acrobats — the largest and most acclaimed group of its kind — have for more than 50 years held audiences spellbound with vibrant presentations of their ancient folk art. The performance features live musical accompaniment from an accomplished Chinese ensemble, and promises to range “from the seemingly impossible to the virtually unbelievable” (Los Angeles Times).
