In the heart of Downtown San Francisco


Last Updated: December 20, 2022

Alonzo King LINES Ballet has developed thorough operations and safety plans for the Dance Center studios, with guidance from state and local officials.

The LINES Dance Center will follow SFUSD’s protocol in the event of COVID-19 direct exposure and/or a positive COVID-19 test.

Masks will be optional in studios, subject to teacher discretion. You can find out which classes require masks by referring to our schedule or asking Dance Center staff.

Out of care for our community of staff, teachers, and students, masks continue to be required for everyone in common areas of LINES Dance Center.

Alonzo King LINES Ballet requires proof of up-to-date vaccination against COVID-19 for everyone—including a booster shot—for entry into the LINES Dance Center. All religious and medical exemptions must be approved by Human Resources prior to entry. Please reach out to Elizabeth Lopez, Director of Human Resources at with documentation relating to religious or medical exemptions.

The current recommendation from the CDC is that people become eligible for boosters 2 months after the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccination, and 5 months after the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna. The CDC is also currently recommending that people who received any of the three basic vaccines receive a Pfizer or Moderna booster, and we encourage everyone to follow the CDC guidance.


We began a gradual reopening of our dance studios at 26 Seventh Street, San Francisco, on July 5, 2021. This process started with an initial schedule of limited-capacity in-person Dance Center classes, which grew to incorporate more offerings through the summer and fall. Please see below for a breakdown of our plans outlined by program.

The LINES Dance Center is located at Seventh & Market in the historic Odd Fellows building. It is less than a block from the Civic Center/UN Plaza BART and MUNI station and the many Market Street bus lines.


In May 2021, Mayor London Breed announced a “Mid-Market Vibrancy and Safety Plan”, which is aimed at creating a safer environment in our neighborhood. Currently in effect, this plan includes an increased police presence combined with community ambassadors to cover every block of the area from Powell Station (5th Street) to 8th Street on Market Street and adjacent areas just south of Market Street, UN Plaza, and the Tenderloin blocks bordered by Larkin Street and Eddy Street. For your safety, please continue to be alert and aware of your surroundings when traveling through the area.
