Alonzo King LINES Ballet HeART with LINES partnerships are developed to connect the philosophy and approach of Alonzo King to the everyday experience of students, youth and families in the Bay Area. Focusing on the power of discovery, collaboration and truth, HeART with LINES programs provide a space for students to learn a foundation of dance concepts, experiment and improvise with movement, develop their own ideas through the choreographic process, and an entry point into the world of dance.
Students will have the opportunity to engage in the creation, performance and reflection through dance, while also learning more about themselves and the world around them as young emerging artists. HeART with LINES partnerships will allow students to utilize the truthful, choreographic approach of Alonzo King to assist in developing abstract and critical thinking skills, social proficiencies through collaboration and build confidence and deeper sense of self.
