Smuin kicks off the holidays with the 2016 edition of The Christmas Ballet.
With equal parts sugar and spice, offering something for both the
naughty and nice, this ever-changing carousel of mischief and elegance
includes something for everyone, from ballet, tap, and swing to a wealth
of other dances drawn from holiday traditions from around the world.
This edition of The Christmas Ballet features four world
premieres, including a new work by Smuin dancer Rex Wheeler, new
choreography from Smuin’s acclaimed Choreographer-in-Residence Amy
Seiwert, another exciting addition by Smuin dancer Nicole Haskins, and
new choreography from Smuin dancer Ben Needham-Wood. Proclaimed “the freshest show in town” by the San Francisco Chronicle, The Christmas Ballet has
toured the Bay Area and will finish
up with its annual holiday run at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts
in San Francisco.
