Zach Klingenberg’s Irish dancing career started when he was five years old with the Richens Timm Academy, where he trained for 14 years. Through his competitive Irish dance career, he became the Mid-West Regional Champion, North American Runner-Up and placed Top 10 at the World Championship four times. After graduating High School, Zach went on to tour globally with Riverdance, Lord of the Dance and numerous other shows as a lead performer. Since the start of his professional career, Zach has pioneered his own style as a choreographer around the world, most notably co-founding the Internet dance group, TapTronic. Currently Zach continues his creative exploration through an original music production and dance entity, Wunderlust in New York. He is looking forward to working with the competitive and non-competitive McGough Academy dancers to develop their creative abilities!
