Reviews and Previews from 32nd Spring Season
City Pages Best of 2012 "Best Dance Performance in the past 12 months for Storm"
“Zenon Dance Company has legs, in every sense of the word. Like a classic film, the troupe has weathered the dips and swells of changing artistic and popular taste with its integrity intact. The troupe’s diverse repertory of jazz, post-modern and experimental works — commissioned from some of the world’s most intriguing choreographers — has only grown more satisfyingly complex over time: richer, spicier, ever-surprising and with an impeccable finish.” Metro Magazine
“Zenon’s spring concert demonstrates – with unflagging fortitude, artistic virtuosity and technical clarity – why this repertory troupe has retained its vitality for two decades. In short, this is a dance company that can do it all.” Star Tribune
MplsStPaul Magazine Best of 2007 "Best Dance Company"
