Kudos!: ALONZO KING

Occupation: Dancer, choreographer, company director

Home: San Francisco

The Lines Ballet founder and director has received the $25,000 Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival Creativity Award in Becket, Mass. Festival executive director Ella Baff presented the award to King, saying that the San Francisco ballet troupe remains “under-recognized in America, and especially on the East Coast, where you have to be smack in the middle of New York to be noticed. This is to give Alonzo a boost because he’s very deserving.” Lines Ballet is performing at Jacob’s Pillow, one of the country’s most prestigious dance festivals, this week.
