Zack Richard

Balboa Instructor

Nearly twenty years ago Zack discovered a passion for swing dancing (through the movie Swing Kids… yup. Classic!) and kinda never looked back. Or like, only looked back occasionally. That being said, it’s a love of discovery, connection to the other, to ourselves, and to the music that brought him to co-found Swing ConneXion with Maryse Lebeau – after having already made Montreal swing dance history by developing the first years of Studio 88 Swing and the Swinging Air Force.

It is with sustained interest that Zack thinks and approaches his teaching. Always figuring out or discovering new ways to dance, to think, and connect with the spirit of jazz and communication between partners, the best compliment he can receive – despite his many wins on the competition dance floor – is still “Hey thanks, amazing class!”
