What level class should I take?


Youth classes are for beginners. The instructor will evaluate the class based on the student’s needs and teach appropriate level skills and techniques.

Beginning – Students looking to build basic technique. Should have some, if limited, experience and sense of rhythm.
Intermediate – Students ready for a faster pace and more advanced combinations. Students should have some experience, good body awareness, knowledge of basic technique and terminology.
Advanced/Professional – Those ready for a challenge or have years of dance experience.


Can I extend my 10-Class Card?

Only for severe injury/illness. Students must provide physical doctors note to receive extension.

When are you open?

Zenon’s lobby desk in The Cowles Center for Dance and The Performing Arts is staffed by a work study volunteer approximately 1/2 hour before each class. Volunteers are available to register students and answer basic questions about the school.

Zenon’s office hours are 10 am – 4 pm Monday–Friday. Since we have a small staff, the office may be closed during holidays, lunch hours, or when the staff is in meetings at an off-site location. Please call ahead for an appointment if you would like to meet with an office staff member.


Do I have to sign-up for class in advance?

No! Drop-ins are always welcome!

What happens when I get there? AKA: When should I show up for class?

Please show up 15 minutes before your class to allow time to get checked in and dressed appropriately before class begins.
