A gleeful romp through some of Broadway's most beloved numbers and two exciting world premieres will take center stage as Smuin Ballet closes out its 20th anniversary season with XXcentric. Choreographed by the company's late, great founder Michael Smuin, Dancin' With Gershwin explores the evolution and reinvention of American dance, with a little help from the Great White Way. The world-premiere ballet But now I must rest comes from Smuin choreographer-in-residence Amy Seiwert and draws inspiration from the lush music of Cesária Évora, aka the Queen of Morna. The program's other world-premiere piece, choreographer Val Caniparoli's Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino (everything but the kitchen sink), blends the music of Vivaldi and the company's high-energy athleticism with wit and reflective beauty.

Fantastic... I brought my 3 year old godson and he loved it. He absolutely had to have a pirate hat before leaving. He danced the rest of the day and called it ballet. He finished off the day by telling be it was for boys and girls and he wanted to go again.
These buccaneers deliver loads of action and heaps of fun for the entire family. Kick-start your holiday season with this all-new production. You will love it!
