Teens @LINES

Start here... go further.

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

Teen students participate in the Weekly Class Series – comprising 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 chance to work with guest artists from the LINES Ballet community, including current and former LINES company members and Artistic Director, Alonzo King.

Both the Master Class Series and Weekly Class Series are designed to give dancers an in-depth understanding of foundational technique and the choreographic process. While building skill and physical strength through proficient technical instruction, students also have the opportunity to experience the creative process, discover their own artistic voice, and build community through dance in a safe and encouraging environment.

"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
