Smuin Ballet 2015/2016 Season

This season we celebrate our fearless spirit and originality. Smuin Ballet is a company of unique artists with a deep commitment to ballet as an art form. Our innovative repertoire pushes the boundaries of contemporary ballet within a distinctly American style, combining classical ballet technique and artistry with uncommon physicality and expression, offering audiences an experience of dance that is entertaining, evocative, and original.

This season, in addition to revisiting some of our favorite ballets, we are thrilled to present several world premieres by both well-known and emerging choreographers. Please join us for this exciting season as we celebrate the art of dance at select venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. We look forward to seeing you!
