SMALL TOWN ROOTS
Zach is from a small town in the Seattle, Washington area named Buckley. Buckley is famously known for being the home of the Buckley Logger Show.
Zach began dancing when he was just 8 years old! He started his dance career at a small local studio named "Michelle's Studio of Dance." At 10 years old, he was accepted at a nationally recognized dance studio: the Allegro Performing Arts Academy.
At 17, Zach left Washington and said hello to sunny Arizona where he attended Grand Canyon University. Zach graduated from GCU with a degree in biology with an emphasis in pre-medicine and a minor in dance education.
Zach's made his debut on the dance scene with performances for the American College Dance Association. Since then, he has performed in over 11 countries worldwide.
Zach began coaching tap dance at the age of 20 at a dance studio in Goodyear, Arizona. Since then, he has worked at some of the most renown and acclaimed dance studios in the USA. He especially loves working with students who are applying to elite collegiate dance programs such as Julliard and PACE.
When Zach first started working as a choreographer, his jobs were mostly for small tap competitions and festivals. These days, he is the go to choreographer for dance stars, Rockettes, and beauty queens, including dancers featured on the Disney Channel, Dance Moms, World of Dance, So You Think You can Dance, and Miss America.
"Zachary is one of the most talented dancers I know. But his talents go far beyond just dancing! He is one of the kindest and down to earth people. His kind heart and uplifting words really made the difference!"
