Born and raised in the ghetto of Montreal, Zachary knew throughout his back and forth childhood, that he would find something that is worth working towards.
Zachary started dancing in 2009 at the age of 14 at MacDonald High School's elite Contemporary & Ballet dance team. During his two years in the team, he trained with some of Montreal's finest ballet professionals where he would then perform at different schools, shows such as TOPS, various elderly homes and more.. This was his first real introduction into the dance world EVER and he still felt like something was missing.
After being involved in a major production for the Greek community in Montreal where Zachary's choreography ability was put to the test, the studio the Hip Hop House in which he was renting from asked for him to be a permanent dance teacher. His ability to start teaching at such a young age with being handed classes with students much older than him, made his love for choreography grow as well as his opportunities.

Steph was always interested in the art of dance ever since she was a young girl. When she was just 6 years old, she officially started taking dance class and her passion started to really blossom. She has taken jazz, ballet, and even some social dancing while she was training in Montreal. But Steph didn't stop there, she then travelled to Los Angeles to train with the top of the line choreographers at some very reputable studios.
After 11 years of competing, teaching, and travelling for dance, the one thing that still rings true to Steph is that she loves sharing her passion for dance with her students and helping them find their own self confidence and love for this art.
