November 19 – December 26

Be entertained by Smuin’s fiercely festive The Christmas Ballet! This year’s program is a confection for everyone with two world premieres and our signature showcase of classical and contemporary dances set to songs of the season.

The San Francisco Chronicle declared Smuin’s holiday on-stage gift, “sheer joy . . . the finest toast to the season.”

The Christmas Ballet features the best of both worlds in two acts: sublime classical ballet set to carols and red-hot contemporary works set to pop favorites.

Do not miss the new treats, fun, and frolic we’ll unwrap this year composed of Smuin’s delightful medley of ballet, contemporary, character, Broadway jazz, and tap.

The Christmas Ballet will be offered as a virtual on-demand streaming option from Thanksgiving through Christmas.
