Best Contemporary Dance Company 

Alonzo King LINES Ballet

By its very foundation and structure, ballet doesn't allow for much fluidity in its form and execution. Alonzo King, a San Francisco-based choreographer, and his dance company Alonzo King LINES Ballet challenge that perception by injecting contemporary rhythms and sophisticated modernism into classical dance. King calls his works "thought sculptures," and every nuanced movement carried out by a dancer has a total sensory impact on the viewer. This company embraces the spirit of San Francisco: innovating what exists to bring forth something ethereal and unique.
