Alonzo King Lines Ballet
Founded by visionary choreographer Alonzo King, LINES Ballet is a renowned dance company and training studio celebrated for its contemporary artistry and authentic creative expression. The company performs locally in San Francisco and spends four months each year touring cities such as New York, Chicago, Paris, Mexico City and Dublin.
LINES Ballet gives back to its community through free dance education that strives to reach children who may not have access to a quality arts program. Designed for underserved youth in grades three through eight, its programs teach universal dance concepts, provide opportunities to attend LINES performances, and foster creative self-expression and confidence.
“Everyone at Bank of the West has treated us with the greatest respect. They recognize the importance of art and have worked to understand our mission so they may support it fully.”
Bank of the West believes in the value of art as a cultural and educational resource in our communities. Since 2010, we have helped to further the mission of Alonzo King LINES Ballet through our sponsorships, grants to support dance programs for underserved youth, and service on the organization’s Board of Directors.
