Some of those productions include: Carousel, Annie, Peter Pan, Seussical, The Sound of Music, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Flower Drum Song, Singin’ In The Rain, and Elf: The Musical. In 2015, Greg will serve as the Associate Choreographer for the new Broadway revival of The King & I at Lincoln Center Theater.
Greg has also danced professionally with the Alberta Ballet, Los Angeles Chamber Ballet, and Hawaii Ballet Theatre as a principal dancer. As a concert dancer, his repertoire ranged from the 19th Century classical roles to contemporary pieces. He has also danced on Broadway in the 1996 revival of The King & I.
While guest teaching at various dance academies across the US, he has taught ballet at Broadway Dance Center (NYC), Peridance(NYC) and has also taught Open classes at American Ballet Theatre. He is currently a company ballet class teacher for the famous Paul Taylor Dance Company.
He has worked with renowned teachers: Diana Cartier (ABT), David Howard, Peter Schabel, Alaine Haubert (ABT), Eve Walstrum (Netherlands Dance Theatre), Tom Pazik (Atlanta School of Ballet), Danilo Radojovic (ABT), Laurence Blake, and Victoria Koenig. Greg’s approach to teaching has been informed by their teaching methods to stress body alignment, kinetic movement, musicality, and placement in order to develop artistry. Greg’s students have included pre-professionals as well as professional dancers from companies such as ABT, Boston Ballet, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Royal Swedish Ballet, Ballet Hispanico, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, Complexions, Paul Taylor Dance Company and Broadway professionals. Greg has also guest taught in Rosie O'Donnell's arts education organization in New York City public schools: Rosie's Broadway Kids.
Greg Zane's advanced-beginning ballet class focuses on body alignment, placement, and furthering prior knowledge of ballet technique. While focusing on body awareness with emphasis on quality of movement, fluidity, and musicality, this class hopes to result in a more intelligent and versatile dancer.
