"I'm a student of Zoe's in an adult ballet class at the YMCA, where Zoe makes us all feel like real dancers. Her classes are rigorous but enjoyable, featuring interesting musical choices and her own brand of gentle encouragement. Even though different people show up to each class, she knows each one of us by name -- proof of her dedication and investment." – Helen Kapstein
Dance classes range from creative movement for children, to ballet for adults, to modern dance and repertory workshops for pre-professional and professional dancers. In each format and with every age group, Zoe empowers participants through strength and skill-building, creative choreography, and eclectic musical choices. In June 2016, Zoe was an artist in residence at Chungnam National University in Daejeon, South Korea, where she led a week of contemporary and improvisation workshops for dance majors. In 2017 Zoe returns to South Korea to offer workshops at the Seoul Dance Center and Ehwa Dance Academy in Incheon in October. With Yaa Samar! Dance Theatre, Zoe has taught movement workshops abroad at Chonbuk National University in Chonbuk, South Korea, Kobe Art Village in Kobe, Japan, and in Amman, Jordan; and locally at the Office for Child and Family Services Juvenile Detention Center in Staten Island, The Staten Island Youth and Justice Center, Drew University (Madison, NJ), Roseland Performing Arts Academy (West Caldwell, NJ), and the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. She has taught at Hunter College and Carnegie Hall with Maria Bauman/MBDance; with the Movement Party at the Fleet Moves Dance Festival in Wellfleet, MA; and on her own at countless studios, gyms, afterschool programs and summer workshops in New York City.
