In January 2017, The Kentucky Center presented Alonzo King LINES Ballet in a public performance at the Brown Theatre.

In addition to sharing their talent with the public, we also contracted with the company to provide a movement workshop with our ArtsReach Dance Ensemble, made up of youth from West Louisville that meet twice weekly for free dance instruction at the Shawnee Arts and Cultural Center.

LEO Weekly published a wonderful article about the workshop, including an overview of how ArtsReach connects these students to amazing opportunities for creative self-expression and skill building, as well as discounted tickets.
