Our Training Program is a full-time two-year professional experience for avid movers ages 18-24. Each year consists of 2 semesters of instruction, during which time dancers work with a world-class faculty, including former and current LINES Ballet company members. Each semester, students are privileged to study with Alonzo King in an interactive workshop setting.

Join us and engage in profound processes of collaboration, creation and performance of new works by leading choreographers.
