LINES 2023 GALA

SATURDAY, APRIL 15


We invite you to get closer to the heartbeat of Alonzo King LINES Ballet during our 2023 Gala.

On April 15, 2023 the LINES family will come together for our annual Gala—an exquisite evening brimming with dance, beauty, and enduring friendship.

Please join us for the opening night of our world premiere—featuring preeminent artistic collaborators including acclaimed photographer Richard Misrach and returning guest star, Grammy Award-winning vocalist Lisa Fischer. The performance will be followed by a true-to-its-tradition elegant celebration infused with love—as we aim to inspire the artist who lives in all of us.

All proceeds from the 2023 Gala allow us to expand our impact with local and global audiences through the creation of new work and support LINES Ballet’s transformative educational and community outreach programs.

We can’t wait to celebrate with you on April 15!
