About LPAC

Our mission is to be your home for connecting through the arts; a place where you're invited to find your creative voice through dance, music, theater, and other performing arts. We produce our own performances, we serve as a home for visiting artists to produce their own work, and we create opportunities to grow and advance through education.

Lineage, a 501c3 nonprofit arts organization, was founded by the Lineage Dance Company, and the Company forms the heart of our live productions. In 2009 we founded the Dance For Joy program: a series of free acting, dance, and voice classes for people with neurological challenges like Parkinson's, MS, TBI, Alzheimer's and dementia, and stroke.

Lineage's vision of a community where the arts are accessible to all includes making sure our neighbors have equitable access to arts education. Click below on "Artists In Schools" to learn more about how Lineage works with local students.

We see ourselves as part of a network that supports our community. That's why we also partner with other Nonprofits to raise awareness and funds for important causes.

Getting To Lineage

Lineage is located at 920 E. Mountain Street in Pasadena, in the same building as the CVS on the corner of Lake and Mountain. Because we're so new, we recommend caution when using a map app to locate us by name.

We are located just blocks from the Lake Avenue stop of Metro L-Line.


Free parking is located in the CVS lot - please ignore the 1-hour parking signs in the lot.

When leaving Lineage, please exit either onto Lake, or onto Mountain in the direction of Lake. We ask that our guests respect our residential neighbors by staying on major streets coming and going from Lineage.
