"The cornerstone that shapes the training philosophy at LINES Ballet School is that art is within the artist. Creative intelligence is a part of mankind's makeup as are heart, brain and lungs. We believe that each individual has a singularly unique voice. Our aim is to strengthen and hone the interior voice, while establishing a deep-seated dance foundation. LBS teaches movement as a science that extracts the best attributes of all dance forms with ballet (western classical dance) as our mainstay.” - Alonzo King, Artistic Director LINES Ballet.

The LINES Ballet Training Program is a year-round training experience for young professional and pre-professional dancers ages 17-24. The program is designed as a two-year program that cultivates strong, well-trained, and diversely educated artists. Each year provides approximately 35 weeks of training, divided into two semesters. Artists invited into the program immerse themselves in a core training of Ballet, Pointe & Variations, Men’s Class, Modern, GYROTONIC®, and LINES Ballet Repertoire with an enriched curriculum that includes Improvisation, Partnering, Music, Nutrition, Anatomy and World Dance.

Training Program participants work with a world-class faculty that includes past and present LINES Ballet company members, a diverse mix of Bay Area artists and visiting master teachers from around the world. These young artists work with established and emerging choreographers on the creation and presentation of new work and are given the unique opportunity to explore and develop their own choreography. The LINES Ballet philosophy fosters the application of these experiences and techniques in balance with the value of each individual’s inherent gifts of intelligence, self-expression and virtue. The LINES Ballet Training Program focuses on an ultimate goal of continually realizing and achieving the full range of artistic potential while pursuing a professional career.
