Alonzo King LINES Ballet

Over the last two seasons, Center audiences have come under the spell of this contemporary dance company from San Francisco. We’ve been mesmerized as their remarkable and exquisite dancers seem to drip across the stage, creating lush, transcendent, and captivating movements that are only possible with LINES.

Alonzo King LINES Ballet is a celebrated contemporary ballet company that has been guided since 1982 by its uniquely global artistic vision. Collaborating with noted composers, musicians, and visual artists, Alonzo King creates works that draw on a diverse set of deeply rooted cultural traditions and imbue classical ballet with new expressive potential. Alonzo King's visionary choreography is renowned for its ability to connect audiences to a profound sense of shared humanity—of vulnerability and tenderness, but also of furious abandon and exhilarating freedom.

Lauded for creating “the most sophisticated modernism in classical dance” by Los Angeles Times, we anxiously await details on what specific works will be unveiled for this engagement! But we know already, LINES is always beautiful and glorious on stage, always a must-see performance.
