The venue itself was very modern. The performances were very good and well worth the $45. The staff were friendly and the facilities were well maintained and clean.

As I was staying across 3rd St from the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, I took the time to spend some time with the exhibits. This facility is multi-purpose, as it hosts ballet, and other performance art, but also has an exhibit, or two...More

I've seen the Smuin Ballet at Yerba Buena several times and have never been disappointed . This contemporary company is not to be missed. If you ever get a chance to see a production do yourself a favor and go .

Sachs and the other exhibit were surreal. Not sure I understood either. I'm a space buff whose mom is an artist, so I've seen some far out exhibits in my time. Trying to understand the statement both artists were trying to convey.

Candidly, we very were disappointed in the content and quality of the exhibits here. The museum sign “Art of Making Things Happen” led to a let-down. We anticipated a more creative museum experience (think proactively, advancing the human race through ingenuity). Not here, not for...More

Wonderful, well-organized, if small gallery of modern, politically-engaged art. Not very expensive to get in ($10 normally, $8 for students and teachers), with about four large galleries to go through. I remember all of them making an impression-- from the parody music video advocating for...More

The Showcase is a wonderful evening - we come from Sacramento and don't know anybody in the Ballet School. But the quality of the dancing and the presentation make it a lovely evening. The theatre itself is very nice - we sat in the balcony...More

Came to see the Smuin Ballet and was greatly entertained. Perfect venue for dance. Centrally located, we spent a short time across the street at the SF Museum of Modern Art. Afterwards, there was an open air event in the park itself.

I am unaware of one, and as San Francisco is a pretty casual city, would think that “smart casual” would be jut fine. Enjoy!
