Alonzo King LINES Ballet | Online Summer Programs are designed for aspiring artists ages 11-25, and offer a unified approach to training. Like our in-studio programs, our Online Summer Programs are rooted in the philosophy of Alonzo King. All classes are taught by previous LINES company members and exceptional guest artists.
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. We emphasize the cultivation of self-discovery and intuitive self-expression.
SUMMER PROGRAMS 2021 ANNOUNCEMENT (May 2021)
We, at LINES, have reached a final decision deemed most suitable for the standard of our Summer Programs. While California is set to open mid-June, this does not currently translate to fully opening our studios for our Summer Programs. Our Summer Program students and families can rest assured that continuing with our Online Summer Programs will provide dancers with a robust curriculum that encapsulates the LINES approach and philosophy. Read the full announcement.

This robust online one or two-week intensive introduces beginner and intermediate dancers to our LINES philosophy and repertoire, encouraging technical and artistic growth as well as independent thinking.
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.
