See the performance calendar for more details.

Smuin has been pushing the conventions of ballet and choreography toward the future's robot-ruled dystopia for the last 16 years, touring nationally and internationally. For this year's holiday program, Amy Seiwert (Smuin's lauded choreographer in residence) and Ballet Master Amy London blend refined ballet choreography with more unconventional move-busting to the sounds of classic carols, funky klezmer jams, and Elvis Presley. The cavalcade of yuletide twirling gives families a wholesome holiday alternative to digitally defacing a neighbor's Christmas card.


The San Francisco Chronicle, Time Out San Francisco, and SF Appeal all have great things to say about the Smuin Ballet. Yelpers give it an average of 4.5 stars:

  • Along with infectious enthusiasm, the company gave Friday's premiere a dangerous-looking full-tilt speed and energy, which was a risk, given that everyone still had work ahead on the rest of the program. – Mary Ellen Hunt, The San Francisco Chronicle
  • While the company lacks some of the bells and whistles of larger arts institutions, it more than makes up for this with its staff's professionalism and approachability. – Becca Hirschman, SF Appeal
