Alonzo King LINES Ballet | Training Ground

Training Ground provides a rigorous yet consolidated dance education for artists ages 18+. Parallel to our two-year Training Program, this pre‐professional pathway is rooted in our LINES training philosophy that “art is within the artist.” The program is perfect for the avid dancer who wants a more serious regimen but may have financial or time constraints. Training Ground is divided into 3-4 month seasons of Fall, Winter or Spring, with the option to attend any season, and is accessible for international and domestic students alike. No audition required.

Due to constraints from the pandemic, we must follow protocol to ensure the safety of our artists, faculty, accompanists, staff, and students of LINES. For this reason, we will have two simultaneous options available for our Winter 2022 season: online and in-person.

In order to attend Training Ground in-person at LINES Dance Center, all participants will be required to provide proof of full vaccination for COVID-19 and must comply with our organization’s masking mandates. Out of care and concern for our dance community of staff, teachers, and students, we appreciate your support of this policy that benefits us all. Participants will be attending two classes with our Training Program dancers daily, and will be allotted 5 Dance Center open classes per week. Visit our Dance Center’s Class Schedule page for a schedule of these supplemental classes. In-person dancers have the option of taking class with the online program.
