LINES vs Classical Ballet



As you can see from the picture, Alonzo Kings’s LINES is a lot more contemporary than traditional classical ballet. In LINES, the movement is a lot more grounded and unique and untraditional positions are explored. In the picture of a classical pa de deux, both the male and female have a sort of uplifted quality to their stance because they are lifting their chest and looking up while their legs are perfectly straight and aligned with one another. However, in LINES, the male is lunging low to the ground and the female’s leg is slightly bent which makes it a rather unique position for a ballet. 

I really enjoyed looking at the pictures of LINES because I thought that they were interestingly beautiful.
