Through the unique aesthetic of Artistic Director Kristopher Estes-Brown, Concept Zero creates theatrical productions that are experienced like a work of art. The contemporary dance idiom is expanded to explore the nature of the 21st century world. The limits of movement are explored as a median to evoke human understanding. Searching out an experience of dance and imagery that is visceral and involuntary.


"Working for Kristopher was such a pleasure of mine. He lead the group of dancers in a professional manner with high expectations, yet was positive and offered moments of  comic relief to the intense rehearsals which is always appreciated! He valued each artist's unique sense of movement and choreographed to their strengths without sacrificing his intentions as a choreographer."

A not for profit performance company, the American Youth Ballet is dedicated to presenting quality original dance performances and creating future generations of dance artists.  The company consists of pre-professional dancers who aspire to achieve a high level of excellence in performance.  Kristopher Estes-Brown and Jennifer Tierney are the founding Artistic Directors of the American Youth Ballet.


“Teaching the American Dance Center students was an absolute joy. they are incredibly strong dancers, daring in their approach to movement and possessing a clear sense of weight and energetic focus. In addition, they pick up material at lightning speeds and exhibit a curiosity and an openness essential to processing new ways of movement. Behind these great young students are their guiding teachers, Kristopher and Jennifer, fighting the great fight in shaping a new generation of professional dancers and artists."
