Led by LINES’ Ballet Master, Meredith Webster, this repertory workshop will focus on learning and working on choreography from Alonzo King’s work. Dancers should arrive warm for this class as it focuses on learning choreography and a warm-up will not be included. As such, it is strongly recommended for dancers to register for and take Lauren Lovette’s ballet masterclass before this workshop to be adequately warm.
Alonzo King LINES Ballet celebrates contemporary ballet, drawing from a diverse set of deeply rooted cultural traditions, imbuing classical ballet with new expressive potential. This repertory/movement class Alonzo King has led the company since 1982, relying on his understanding of ballet as a science—founded on universal geometric principles of energy and evolution. The company continues to develop a new language of movement from its classical forms and techniques. Alonzo King’s choreography, brought to life by the LINES Ballet dancers, connects audiences to a profound sense of shared humanity. LINES Ballet has been featured at venues such as the Venice Biennale, Monaco Dance Forum, Maison de la Dance, the Edinburgh International Festival, Montpellier Danse, the Wolfsburg Festival, the Holland Dance Festival and Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris.
