Smuin Ballet

Dance in Downtown, Civic Center & SoMa

Not your grandma's ballet, Smuin debuts original balletic works inspired by cartoons, cello prodigies and Dr Martin Luther King's civil rights speeches. Performances are witty and poignant, with mass appeal – ideal for those who find ballet too stiff but interpretive dance too precious. Also performs at ODC and Palace of Fine Arts; see website for dates and venues.
