I took my boyfriend to this production, and now he's asking me to sign us up for more Smuins ballets. I knew this would happen as I've been a patron of Smuins ballet for years.

However, I didn't like the balcony seats we were assigned. To...continued

The Smuin ballet company is the best dance group to see! It's a holiday treat with so many different kinds of dances, great lighting, clever sets, relaxing and fun to see!

We are SO fortunately to have this dance group in our Bay Area. They are talented, fresh, inventive and delightful.

Seats where not that great last row, but we where able to see everything.

Staging and sets were superb. Lighting and all other technical support items were of the highest quality. The costumes were simple, but elegant. The dancers were, of course gorgeous. The dancing in the company numbers was a little uneven, but...continued
