ZooNation UK Dance Company was founded in London in 2002 by director and choreographer Katie Prince and consists of two companies, ZooNation and ZooYouth.

Their work has included creating the award-winning five star show Into the Hoods. After success at the Edinburgh Festival, Sadler's Wells and the Wales Millennium Centre, Into the Hoods was the first ever Hip Hop dance show to transfer to the West End. It opened in 2008 at London's Novello Theatre and received rave reviews from audience members and critics alike.

Since then, ZooNation were invited to perform at the Official Closing Ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games and at Nelson Mandela's 90th Birthday Celebrations at Hyde Park. The company have previously created and performed pieces for some of the most high profile sporting events in recent years including the Opening Ceremony of the Tour de France, the Official Olympic Celebration and the Olympic Launch, all in Trafalgar Square.
