Performance Track tuition covers unlimited classes during the session, with a minimum of three classes per week, and must perform in at least one showcase piece.

**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.
