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.

Molly Kay Stoltz

Rehearsals Tues/Wed 7 – 10pm

This piece will combine Flamenco dance vocabulary and rhythms with body percussion and footwork. It explores my feeling of nostalgia – a sense that is both bitter and sweet – while thinking of a memory of watching fireflies communicating with each other at dusk in the summer.

Cullen Propp

Rehearsals Wednesdays 4:30-6pm

“My cast of dancers and I will explore generational trauma and how we find peace, healing, and transformation under the shadow of systematic and social violence. Recognition and acceptance of difference are PARAMOUNT in this work, and provides a foundation for building communities that foster transformative love and holistic healing.”

Edna Stevens

Rehearsals: Fridays 7-9pm

Edna’s piece will incorporate African rhythm and movements and an American flavor.
