Register at linesballet.org. Online classes are streamed live via Zoom app. Contemporary dance at LINES Dance Center has ballet technique as its foundation but pulls from a variety of dance forms through its creative incarnation. From modern, hip hop, jazz and others, Contemporary dance fuses styles, forms and a wide expression of movement through the creative process and experience. Classes focus on a foundation of technical and somatic understanding as well as providing space for creative and choreographic investigation and exploration.
