Starting out by joining his high school’s talent competition with 6 other friends (shoutout to Superheroes), Zach had a taste of his first ever dance experience and loved it. He decided to pursue dancing a little more by putting himself in a studio and learning basic hip-hop for 5 months. Despite his growing passion, he stopped dancing at the age of 17 to focus on his studies.
A year and a half later, Zach found himself sitting in the audience of Flare’s 2015 production ‘Be’. Being wowed piece after piece, he wondered if he had the skills or even the guts to set foot in one of Flare’s classes. Little did he know, a friend would bring him to his first class, and he would go on to be graced with his first Cocktail Night piece the next year.
From being the awkward newbie in his first piece, to being part of Flare’s 2016 production, Zach finds that Flare has opened his eyes to so much more in the world of dance, offering genres that he had not even heard of before. As much as he appreciates the opportunity to grow and have fun outside of Uni, the friendships and memories made are what Zach cherishes the most. Finding a family miles away from home, he hopes to give back to Flare as part of the committee this year. Zach is proud to call himself a Flarian and looks forward to continuing life with the Flaremily.
