Zaki is a multi-disciplinary circus artist pulling from a wide background of movement and disciplines both on the ground and in the air. Starting his training in ballet at a late age, he moved on to explore and develop in other different dance styles and functional movement training, before taking all the skills he’s learnt into the air as a pole and aerial performer, choreographer and coach across the world.
Zaki is adept at a wide range of aerial disciplines, but primarily performs on the Flying Pole, Hoop, Silks and Dance Trapeze (with a big spin of course!). His movement work focuses on developing good core, technique and form, with flow and a performing flair.
He is the 2019 Professional Open Champion of the UK Aerial Performance Championships in Flying Pole, and the 2019 Regional Champion in the Professional Open category on Hoop. However, his biggest moment was performing live for Tsar B in concert in Belgium, but has also most recently worked with companies such as Bassline Circus, Upswing Aerial, Mariah & Friendz, and performed across London cabaret and theatre venues, from the Roundhouse to Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club.
