Education Programs Audition Tour 2023

Alonzo King LINES Ballet

Summer, BFA, and Training Program

Join us in Chicago for our 2023 Summer Program Audition! We are traveling across the country searching for the next generation of artists to train with world-renowned faculty at our downtown home in San Francisco.

Our Summer Program is designed for aspiring artists ages 11-25 and offers a unified approach to training. Rooted in the philosophy of Alonzo King, our programs guide students on a collaborative journey that values risk-taking, creative power, and independent thinking.

If you are interested in our Pre-Professional Summer Program, consider our other education programs! We offer a 4-year academic track with LINES BFA at Dominican University of California, as well as a 2-year robust, full-time program with LINES Ballet Training Program. We welcome you to audition for any or all of our education programs.
