She has also enjoyed being on the podium for Champions level Freestyle and DWAS divisions at every competition since 2007 with a tidy 27 titles under belt at last count.
Zac has danced since he was 13 years old and had his first partner dancing classes with Le Step on the Coast where he now teaches, choreographs, mentors, judges and MC’s. Zac has skills that have seen him a regular on the podium at national competitions, for both Champions Freestyle and DWAS as well as multiple team events. He’s lost count of his medals and trophies but that’s not why he dances.
Emma and Zac have an enormous passion for social dancing and they believe that is where the magic happens.

Patryck & Wendy are excited to be joining the Pan Asia Ceroc Championships Party for the second time this year, bringing over 24 years of collective dance experience and over 15 champions level Ceroc placings between them.
Wendy started her dancing journey in New Zealand, learning Ceroc, Salsa, Bachata, Zouk, and Kizomba, yet always came back to Ceroc because of its freedom to bend the rules and draw on inspiration from other dance styles. Wendy is known across the Ceroc community for consistently winning at the highest level (including winning the top level Dance with a Stranger at CPAC in 2017) and her ability to teach and inspire students with her endless creativity, styling, and musicality.
Patryck is passionate about Ceroc dancing because it brings people with varying levels of dance experience together from all around the world. Best known for his technique and musicality, Patryck loves sharing what he has learnt with all of his students. Patryck has developed extensive teaching experience through his workshops at dance weekenders around Australia, teaching choreography and numerous routines to his students, and providing free competition preparation for his students in Sydney.
Music and dance has always touched Jacky’s soul and as a child she was forever singing & dancing around. 17 year ago, Jacky started Ceroc, swiftly progressing from Taxi Dance and then to Teacher 12 years ago in Kent, UK. As a Ceroc Teacher, Jacky found she was in her element. Nothing fulfills Jacky quite like helping others to discover something she loves so much.
Ian, who accompanies Jacky as showcase workshop partner, comes from a musical background and yet again dance was in his soul from an early age. Ian began Ceroc 10 years ago and is now both Taxi dancer & Demo in Kent, UK, bringing his outgoing nature and enthusiasm to the floor as he helps dancers satisfy their ambition and reach their potential.
At the ripe old age of 21, Tamara joined her University Latin and Ballroom society with high hopes of being on Strictly. Then, 3 months later she sacked it all in after being taken to her first Ceroc class and hasn’t looked back since. 4 years go by and with her addiction is as strong as ever, she and her ridiculous collection of leggings are bubbling with excitement at joining the Ceroc Asia dancers, bringing with her from the UK her fresh perspective as a newly qualified Ceroc teacher.
Short in stature at only 5 foot 2 inches, Tamara has a determination to show that you don’t need height, man-power or cheesy one-liners to lead Ceroc like the best of them – just ask her for a dance to find out for yourself, or come and join in her Leading for Ladies workshop and have a go!
Willing to get her groove on with everyone and everything, you’ll rarely find her off the dance floor, and she gets even more excited when you lead her round in ballroom frame – it makes her feel like she did get to Strictly after all…
