COVID-19 UPDATES

 
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.

At this point, we plan to hold the Summer Programs as scheduled, in accordance with the policies of these health organizations. To help families, we are extending our registration and payment deadlines for all of our summer programs, and waiving the initial deposit. Details on this, as well as changes to the refund policy, will be sent to those who are accepted to our program. Questions should be directed to Summer-Program@LINESballet.org.
