With Asia as its Western neighbor, San Francisco’s geographical location explains its residents’ cosmopolitan outlook – one of the main reasons why choreographer Alonzo King chose the city as the home for his ballet company. Yet as much as the artist also draws inspiration from the dancing traditions of the Far East, his work remains rooted in classical technique along the lines of George Balanchine.
