About Zenon Dance Company

Technique Track

Tuition – $55/week

This program is for dancers of all levels, backgrounds, and ages,
who are looking to enhance creative and technical skills, and explore different styles of dance.

Technique Track tuition covers unlimited dance classes during the session to ZenONLINE, in-person and hybird classes, with a minimum requirement of attendance at three classes per week.

This track offers significant savings for those who already take 2+ dance classes at Zenon per week.

Performance Track

Tuition – $55/week

Fall 2023 Performance Track

This program is for students with a strong intermediate or advanced level of dance technique and who are looking for opportunities to perform.

Performance students attend classes, learn, and collaborate with local area choreographers, and perform in an end-of-session showcase.

Performance Track tuition covers unlimited classes during the session to ZenONLINE, in-person, and hybird classes, with a minimum of three classes per week, and must perform in at least one showcase piece. Zenon Dance Zone choreographers will be conducting rehearsals at the Zenon studios located in The Cowles Center for Dance and The Performing Arts. Each choreographer will create one work for the Zenon Dance Zone Summer Showcase on December 15 & 16, 2023.

**Students who audition for the Performance Track and do not qualify will be automatically offered a contract for the Technique Track.”

The Zone program has allowed me to grow in terms of both technique and performance at a manageable price. It has been an unparalleled opportunity to work with and get to know a wide range of choreographers and fellow dancers in the Twin Cities. In this sense, Zenon’s Zone program opens the door to dance opportunities and advancement in the Twin Cities like no other program I know.
