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

We had front row seats which I was a bit worried about being to close. But it was spectacular!!!!! The dancing was so professional and the costumes were to die for!

Quotes & Highlights
“What other city in the world has anything like the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival?…I heartily envy the Bay Area residents.” —The New York Times
Devoted to nurturing the work of Northern California dancers, this year marks two new highs: the debut of a record 26 world premieres—almost twice as many as in previous years—and the commission of a record four new works, including a Mexican Bicentennial Tribute created by acclaimed choreographer Zenón Barrón and featuring dancers from six local companies. In addition to these exciting performances, audiences will enjoy many companies that have never before appeared at the festival.
