Smuin Ballet to Present CHRISTMAS BALLET Tour Beginning in November

Smuin's joyful holiday tradition will return to spread yuletide cheer with its signature showcase of classical and contemporary dances set to delightfully festive tunes.

The Christmas Ballet will kick off the holidays with two acts featuring the best of both worlds: beautiful classical ballet set to beloved carols, and red-hot contemporary numbers set to pop favorites. With the surprise unwrapping of new treats each year, this charming medley of dances incorporates a variety of styles including ballet, tap, jazz, and more.

Smuin's yuletide spectacular was declared "sheer joy...the finest toast to the season" by the San Francisco Chronicle. The LGBTQ+ Night performance of Smuin's irrepressible holiday classic will also return December 20, featuring a twist on the annual holiday tradition with surprises that add camp, culture, and miles of cheer to The Christmas Ballet.
