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.
