The Smuin Ballet presents their spring series for 2013, featuring three diverse works that showcase the company's skill and exemplify the fresh and youthful spirit of spring. From choreographer Helen Pickett, who studied as a dancer under Michael Smuin at the San Francisco Ballet School, comes the West Coast premiere of Petal,
an effervescent piece set to music by Philip Glass and Thomas Montgomery Newman, that was called "the perfect piece for spring" by Atlanta Magazine
. Darrell Grand Moultrie gives Bay Area audiences their first look at his JAZZIN'
, a sultry ballet set to jazz music by Wynton Marsalis, Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn and Andy Razaf. Finally, Michael Smuin's romantic and lovely Chants d'Auvergne
is a series of solos, duets, trios and ensemble pieces set to traditional French songs arranged by Joseph Cantaloube.
