Alonzo King has created works for companies throughout the world including the Royal Swedish Ballet, Frankfurt Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Dance Theater of Harlem, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Hong Kong Ballet, North Carolina Dance Theatre, and the Washington Ballet.

In 1982, he founded Alonzo King LINES Ballet, an international touring company. In 1989, he opened the Alonzo King LINES Dance Center, now one of the largest facilities for dance education on the West Coast. King has received multiple awards and honors from the city of San Francisco, where he and his company are based, from the prestigious Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, and was recognized as one of fifty outstanding artists in America by United States Artists.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, under the artistic leadership of Glenn Edgerton, celebrates its 35th season in 2012 and 2013. Among the world's top contemporary dance companies and a global cultural ambassador, Hubbard Street demonstrates fluency in a wide range of techniques and forms, and deep comprehension of abstract artistry and emotional nuance.

The company is critically acclaimed for its exuberant and innovative repertoire, featuring works by master American and international choreographers. Hubbard Street's artists hail from four countries and 12 U.S. states, and comprise a superlative ensemble of virtuosity and versatility.

Since its founding by Lou Conte in 1977, Hubbard Street has grown through the establishment of multiple platforms. Each is dedicated to the support and advancement of dance as an art form, as a practice, and as a method for generating and sustaining communities of all kinds.

Hubbard Street 2 cultivates young professional dancers and identifies next-generation choreographers. Extensive Education & Community Programs are models in the field of arts outreach, linking the performing company's creative mission to the lives of students and families. Hubbard Street also initiated the first dance-based program in the Midwest to help alleviate suffering caused by Parkinson's disease.

Youth Dance Classes at the Hubbard Street Dance Center include Creative Movement and progressive study of technique, open to movers ages 9 months to 13 years. And at the Lou Conte Dance Studio, workshops and master classes allow access to expertise, while a broad variety of weekly classes offer training at all levels in jazz, ballet, modern, tap, African, hip-hop, yoga, Pilates and Zumba.
