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

Performers were top notch. Really enjoyed the show. But, it was so-o-o long. Strictly in the sense of entertainment, the auction dragged the evening longer than I was paced for. However, I do understand that it was a fundraiser, so I tried to be patient.

Henderson rocked as the dominatrix brutalizing the like of John Travolta and Tom Cruise while singing "When you're good to momma" !! Carole Cook, Maureen McGovern and Valerie Pettiford were remarkable! Best of all,however, was the heart and soul...continued
