Zac Jones

PathWave movement creator Zac Jones has spent a lifetime immersed in movement. Initially training in ballet at the Australian Ballet School he danced with Queensland Ballet and Expressions Dance Company before pursuing the study of martial arts including Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Systema, Arnis and Aikido. Concurrently with his training in martial arts he began studying Somatics, including Continuum with Amber Grey, Skinner Releasing and Ideokinetics with Wendy Smith, Franklin Method and Pilates with Bruce Hildebrand and Unwind with Gavin Clarke. From practising these methods together Zac began to develop the ideas contained in PathWave Movement and in 2013 undertook a Research Masters at Victorian College of the Arts in order to further his investigations. In 2012 Zac teamed up with Adam Wood of Armstrongs Singing to create Sing Easy - a method of voice and body release for singers. As a teacher Zac has taught ballet and contemporary dance, martial arts and Pilates and movement conditioning at some of Melbourne’s premier training institutions including The Australian Ballet School, The Victorian College of the Arts and Aikido Shudokan. He is currently Studio Director at Back in Health Pilates in the Rialto Towers in Melbourne’s CBD. In September 2016 Zac’s work The Right Unravelling, an exploration of dance, martial arts and music, presented with sound artist Ziggy Zeigeist for the Melbourne Fringe Festival, was nominated for Best Dance Award. In March 2017 he will be taking The Right Unravelling to The Adelaide Fringe Festival.
