Summer Program

Immerse. Uncover. Transform.
Alonzo King LINES Ballet | Online Summer Programs

Alonzo King LINES Ballet | Online Summer Programs are designed for aspiring artists ages 11-25, and offers a unified approach to training. Like our in-studio program, our Online Summer Programs are rooted in the philosophy of Alonzo King. All classes are taught by previous LINES Company members with the exception of select Guest Artist workshops.

Our aim is to supply a solid technical underpinning, based in classical training, and to provide an environment for the unfolding of the students’ own creative power. They are encouraged to problem solve through exploration and a tenacious work ethic. Emphasis is placed on cultivating the ability to recognize individual gifts and express themselves with fluency.

For an insider’s perspective, we asked student Mia Ortega to share her reflections over the course of the Advanced session. To read more about her experience online with us this summer click below.


Online Pre-Professional | June 22 – July 4
Online Advanced | July 27 – August 8
Online Junior | July 6 – 10

We realize that this is a confusing time for everyone making summer plans and we want to help.

Alonzo King LINES Ballet continues to closely monitor the coronavirus situation through the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the California Department of Public Health, and the San Francisco Department of Public Health. The health and safety of our students, faculty, artists, and staff remain our top priority.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, LINES Ballet has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Pre-Professional, Advanced, and Junior Summer Programs in San Francisco*. We had hoped circumstances would be different, but due the government mandates, it is not optimal to host our program in our LINES Dance Center studios.

We are excited to offer another way to submerge into the LINES experience this summer. If we cannot be together in our studios, we will join you in your home!

The task of the human being is to radiate
“Everything in the phenomenal universe is straight line and circle. The horizon, our heads, arms, electrons, the oceans, planets and stars. Their principal function is to radiate. The task of the human being is also to radiate.”
