As Smuin enters its 24th year, the Company remains committed to presenting groundbreaking work, offering you an experience of ballet that is entertaining, evocative, and original.

We are delighted to bring you a blend of beloved Smuin favorites, introduce the work of new and internationally renowned choreographers, and unveil a world premiere.

If one judges a dance company by the quality of choreographer it attracts, then Smuin can hold up its head with pride.
Smuin is a Bay Area gem… [engaging] high-caliber choreographers to create a stream of exciting new works. The dancers are athletic, musical and expressive, and their partnering and group unison work are impeccable.
Smuin honors tradition while pushing parameters to further establish an authentic, contemporary profile. Music is an effective conduit — with most dance companies — and especially in performances featuring Smuin’s expressive, highly tuned-in dancers.

Season highlights:

Michael Smuin’s lively homage Fly Me to the Moon, celebrating the warm and witty songs of Frank Sinatra

Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Requiem for a Rose, a intimate reflection of unconventional romance

Helen Pickett’s Oasis ignites the stage once more with a lavish original score by House of Cards composer Jeff Beal

Amy Seiwert’s Falling Up returns, featuring a lush piano score by Johannes Brahms

Garrett Ammon’s Serenade for Strings fuses classical vocabulary with quirky, unexpected movement

WORLD PREMIERE: award-winning choreographer Val Caniparoli weaves a vibrant, cutting-edge movement narrative

• It’s not the holidays in the Bay Area without the wildly popular tradition, The Christmas Ballet, offering new and unexpected additions
