The crew, started in Brooklyn by Syrin Zero, has turned into an international dance family represented in countries including France, Russia, Brazil and Jamaica. In addition to dance, the good folks of Zero Nation are DJs, clothing designers and photographers. They pledge loyalty to their crew and really know how to throw a party.
