Training Ground provides a rigorous yet consolidated dance education for artists ages 18+. Parallel to our two-year Training Program, this pre‐professional pathway is rooted in our LINES training philosophy that “art is within the artist.” The program is perfect for the avid dancer who wants a more serious regimen but may have financial or time constraints. Training Ground is divided into 3-4 month seasons of Fall, Winter or Spring, with the option to attend any season, and is accessible for international and domestic students alike. No audition required.
Training Ground students are permitted 15 classes per week. They will be attending two to three classes with our Training Program dancers daily, and will be allotted supplemental Dance Center open classes per week. Visit our Dance Center’s Class Schedule page for a schedule of these supplemental classes.
Our Training Ground’s curriculum includes ballet, contemporary, improvisation, LINES Repertoire, and GYROKINESIS® and more. Visit our Dance Center’s Class Schedule page to see class options.
Don’t just take class. Ignite your training and discover your artistic potential.
In LINES Ballet’s training philosophy, each individual’s interior facility is tapped, cajoled, nourished, and brought forth.
