Smuin continues its 25th anniversary season with “Dance Series 01,” which comes to Mountain View this week.

A program of contemporary ballet, performances are slated Thursday through Sunday at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

Trey McIntyre returns to Smuin with “Blue Until June,” a tribute to Etta James.

In addition, there will be three works first developed in Smuin’s Choreography Showcase: “Merely Players” by Smuin dancer Nicole Haskins, “Echo” by Smuin dancer Ben Needham-Wood and “Sinfonietta” by former Smuin dancer Rex Wheeler.

“Dance Series 01” also will include Michael Smuin’s “Schubert Scherzo,” a dance set to Schubert’s sprightly C-Major Symphony, and “The Eternal Idol,” Michael Smuin’s pas de deux, inspired by Auguste Rodin’s iconic sculptures.

Performances are scheduled 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $58-$76.
