smuin ballet

Debuting in San Francisco in 1994, Smuin Ballet pushes the boundaries of contemporary ballet within a distinctly American style, combining classical ballet training, technique, and artistry with uncommon physicality and expression.  

Katherine has worked with Smuin Ballet as a contracted graphic designer.
