Celia Fushille worked side by side with Michael Smuin, as dancer and ballet mistress, when he launched the company in 1994. She took the reins when Smuin died in 2007. Now serving as artistic and executive director, Fushille is moving the company forward. “If people want works that are just exclusively like Michael Smuin, well, Michael Smuin was unique,” Fushille says. “Each choreographer is going to bring something new to the plate. I’m really happy when the audience is willing to take this step of exploration with me, because it’s an evolving art form and I can’t just rely on doing Michael’s works exclusively. I don’t think we would have survived these six years if we were a museum company, just presenting Michael’s works. It would become boring for the dancers and boring for the audience.

Schaaf was dressed in jeans and a long-sleeve magenta print shirt — made, she said, in Oakland. Large oak tree earrings dangled from her ears. Schaaf, the only Oakland native among the top mayoral candidates, never misses an opportunity to stress her Oakland roots. I met with the City Council member for District 4 at her home. As we walked through Dimond Park in excruciating heat, I asked whether running against Mayor Jean Quan — whom Schaaf succeeded in the district — presented any unique challenges. Did she encounter voters who were torn between their current and immediate past councilwomen?.
