He moved on to the Paris Opera, where he studied classical dance with Yves Casati, and Decroux technique with Yvan Bacciocchi at the studio of Belleville. Zaryan perfected his artform at the prestigious École Internationale de Mimodrame de Marcel Marceau; he was, in fact, one of the last students to receive a degree from this school.
