Smuin Ballet Company seems to always put on a fantstic performance. I especially liked the performance of 'Carmen'. This event made a great date night!

Some of it was quite entertaining... very little in the way of inspiring dance movement.

We look forward to seeing more from Amy after the opening ballet from her--great use of pairing and solos.

Carmen really turned up the heat!

Smuin’s 2007 Fall/Winter Season was a Goldstar Roar of the Crowd winner.

Description

Smuin Ballet’s 15th anniversary season promises to be an even more exciting adventure with a year of premieres. In their upcoming fall/winter Program, Emmy Award-winning guest choreographer Robert Sund will be staging his Smuin Ballet premiere with Carmen, a sexy, jazzy interpretation of the classic story of romantic obsession, set to the music of Miles Davis.

Additionally, Smuin Ballet Choreographer in Residence Amy Seiwert will present Been Through Diamonds, her eighth world premiere for Smuin, set to the music of Mozart. Seiwert has been recognized by the dance and entertainment worlds alike, named by Dance Magazine as one of the “top 25 to watch” in 2005 and highlighted by 7×7 Magazine in their “Hot 20 Under 40” list.

Rounding off the program, audiences will enjoy Michael Smuin’s Dances with Songs, the vibrant, iconic ballet that launched the Company fifteen years ago.
