Summer Program

Immerse. Uncover. Transform.
Alonzo King LINES Ballet | Summer Programs

Alonzo King LINES Ballet | Summer Programs are designed for aspiring artists ages 11-25 and offer a unified approach to training — rooted in the philosophy of Alonzo King. Our Summer Program supports the artistic growth of ballet and contemporary dancers. Dancers are guided on a collaborative journey that values risk-taking and independent thinking. We have an exceptional faculty, many who are former LINES Ballet company dancers and renowned guest artists. Our 2023 Summer Program Auditions are now open for registration.
AUDITION

Our aim is to supply a solid technical underpinning, based in classical training, and to provide an environment for the unfolding of the students’ own creative power. They are encouraged to problem solve through exploration and a tenacious work ethic. Emphasis is placed on cultivating the ability to recognize individual gifts and express themselves with fluency.
