ACHF Arts Education
Zenon Dance Company and School seeks to offer new opportunities for arts learning in the state by partnering with new residency sites and audiences for our programming. The project outcome will be evaluated through class participation levels, written and verbal evaluations, school administrator evaluations, and the quality of the culminating student performance. 2: Zenon seeks to make dance as an art form accessible to young people regardless of economic background, geography or physical ability. The project outcome will be evaluated by demographic analysis of residency participants as provided by school administrators, including physical and economic challenges and limited geographic access to the Twin Cities dance community.
