Smuin Ballet

Debuting in March 1994, Smuin Ballet has quickly established itself as “one of this country’s most entertaining, original ballet troupes” (Dance Magazine). Indeed, few names in dance are as widely known and recognized as that of Michael Smuin: at the heart of the company is Mr. Smuin’s singular ability to create pieces which merged the diverse vocabularies of classical ballet and contemporary dance forms.

Recognized for its accessible and innovative repertory, the company adheres to the philosophy that ballet should be a living dance form that can continue to engage and delight modern audiences. In testimony to the success of this commitment, Smuin Ballet frequently performs to sold-out houses.

Between 1995 and 2006 the company has premiered over forty works by Michael Smuin and has recently begun premiering works by a new generation of choreographers, drawn from Smuin Ballet's own company of artists.

Smuin Ballet is proud to have called the Bay Area home for the past fifteen years. Audiences from throughout San Francisco, Marin County, the Peninsula and the East Bay have imbued Smuin performances with passion and enthusiasm since the beginning, supporting an expanding subscription program and touring schedule. The company offers subscription seasons at four venues in the Bay Area: San Francisco, Walnut Creek, Mountain View and Carmel. A season consists of three programs throughout the year. Smuin Ballet also tours nationally and internationally.
