Our Story

At ZoNa Dance Co., we believe that dance seeks to provide a context for aesthetic and artistic experience which enables the individual to develop personally, socially and physically through participation in dance and choreography in an enjoyable environment.

The company and school began with the vision of bringing dance to the young people of the northwest of Ireland. The growth since the time of the inception of the school has increased and developed beyond the original vision. The dancers have had wonderful opportunities to be invited to dance in professional dance festivals and productions and produce original pieces of choreography, they have been displayed at numerous events, and have made a very reputable annual end of year showcase.

We’ve had students become members of the Irish National Youth Ballet, and have had students successfully audition for third level college/university in Ireland, USA, England and Scotland. We have the privileged of an ongoing relationship with Ballet Ireland and are fortunate to have private tuition with Stephen Brennan.
