On the Road with Smuin Ballet

This February, Smuin Ballet traveled to Sarasota, Florida to perform our Dance Series One program. Presented by Sarasota Ballet at the FSU Center for the Performing Arts, Smuin’s five performances were a sold-out success. “We enjoyed wonderful exchanges with their directors, staff and dancers,” said Artistic Director Celia Fushille.

Smuin Ballet enjoys a long history of touring work. During the early years of the company, Smuin regularly performed at the Joyce Theater in New York, and often toured in southern California. Often presented by the California Arts Council, the Company’s tours included performances in Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Santa Cruz, and more.

Smuin Ballet has also enjoyed tours through the midwest, including frequent trips to and around Missoula, Montana: the hometown of Company founder Michael Smuin. More recently, the Company has traveled to Fort Collins and Pueblo, Colorado, as well as two whirlwind Italy tours: 10 shows in 9 cities in 12 days!

Fushille noted, “When touring, we are reminded

[that] we are part of the larger dance world across the country. Audience members often comment on the diversity and strength of our dancers. We love to share with other communities what our dancers are exposed to choreographically on the West Coast.”

Can’t get enough of Smuin Ballet? The Company brings Dance Series One to the Sunset Center in Carmel, California March 25-26! Tickets are available now.
