Through our diverse educational programs, we cultivate the gifts of developing dancers.
The Training Program is a two-year, year-round program designed for young professional and pre-professional dancers ages 17-24. Working with a world-class faculty that includes Company dancers as well as master teachers, the program’s goal is to help students reach their full artistic potentials, while pursuing professional careers.
The Summer Program’s intensive four- and five-week courses are designed for aspiring dancers ages 11-24 with a focus on exposing young artists to process-oriented work, exploring a variety of dance techniques, with ballet as its core discipline. Young people will study techniques designed to cultivate strong, well-trained, educated dancers, and will work a minimum of 40 hours per week.
The Discovery Project is an exciting new outreach program. These three-to-five day intensive workshops are designed to diversify the scope of LINES Ballet's impact on young artists and communities. The Discovery Project addresses ways to use dance to bridge gaps created by diversity of experience, perspective, culture, and socioeconomic background.
Teens @LINES is taught by renowned faculty and gives young dancers the unique chance to work with guest artists from within the LINES Ballet community including current and former LINES company members and Alonzo King. Teens @LINES provides dynamic dance education opportunities that inspire artistry for youth ages 13-17. Through this comprehensive program, connected to the philosophy of Alonzo King, a young dancer can participate in weekly classes for students new to dance intensive or master classes for intermediate to advanced dancers.
Alonzo King LINES Ballet and Dominican University of California join forces in this exciting and completely unique four-year program, which culminates in a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Dance.
