LINES Vs. Classical

swan3LINES

I tried to find pictures of similar moves but in the totally different styles of classical and contemporary ballet. This was difficult to do since LINES uses such unique movements, but this was the best I could get. The classical picture shows the straight lines and lofty nature of the style. The contemporary picture, from Alonzo King’s LINES, shows the curvature and lowness of his new style. LINES feels much more grounded and earthy than the structured and strict style of the classics.
