Originally from Columbus, Ohio and currently residing in Los Angeles, California, Zach has created a name for himself not only as a dancer and performer, but also a sought after teacher and choreographer. His career has allowed him countless performance opportunities spanning across film, television, and stage

Some of Zach’s credits include the Warner Bros. feature film Project X, the television show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, assisting the legendary Michael Rooney on the television project Hit Record starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tony Danza, a Ford Superbowl commercial starring James Franco, performing with China’s top 5 artists on Hunan TV’s New Year’s Eve Countdown, and a world tour with pop artist Adam Tyler

Most recently, Zach worked with Walk the Moon as the assistant choreographer for the popular “Shut Up and Dance” music video. Zach cites tap as his truest love, and credits much of his training and artistry to Gregg Russell, along with Paris Mann and Rashida Kahn. Zach has had the pleasure of teaching and choreographing at studios both nationally and internationally, and can be found on national convention tours with Art of Movement and KAR Dance Convention. Zach also teaches for competitive studios in the Greater Los Angeles Area, where he hopes to inspire the next generation to love and appreciate dance as much as he does. 

Zach’s goal is to approach every class with a kind heart and constructive eye, pushing dancers to not only believe in their movement, but most importantly in themselves.
