Teens @LINES

Start here... go further.

Teens @LINES provides dynamic dance education that inspires individual artistry and offers expert technical instruction to youth ages 12-18. The program is born from the philosophy of Alonzo King and aims to educate the whole person through artistic training. Young dancers are given a unique opportunity to encourage the artist within, focus on creativity and strengthen self-identity.

Teens @LINES students participate in the Weekly Class Series – comprised of the Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Tracks – and an intensive Master Class Series to support the transition into pre-professional dance study.

The Teens @LINES program is taught by renowned Dance Center faculty and provides students an exclusive opportunity to work with guest artists from the LINES Ballet community, including current and former LINES company members and Artistic Director, Alonzo King.

"Training in dance is a door into acquiring knowledge about how things work…The process of problem solving and inquiry produces bright minds. When the mind is sharpened through dance, its sharpness remains intact when applied to other forms of study." - Alonzo King
