Our Training Program is a full-time two-year professional experience for avid dancers ages 17-24. Each year consists of 2 semesters of instruction (35 weeks), during which time participants work with a world-class faculty, including former and current LINES Ballet company members. Each semester, students are privileged to study with Alonzo King in an interactive workshop setting.

Engage in the ground-level process of collaborating, creating and showcasing new works by leading choreographers. Challenge your inner artist working with a remarkable roster of renowned Bay Area, national, and international guest artists. Experience the thrill of performing on stage and sharing your artistic voice with San Francisco audiences.

Ultimately, we strive to develop strong, versatile, and intelligent dance artists who are empowered to share their unique voices.
