In 2015 he moved to Wellington to train at the New Zealand School of Dance, graduating in 2017. During his time at the school, Jack had the opportunity to perform alongside the Royal New Zealand Ballet during their season of Ethan Stiefel and Johan Kobborg’s Giselle.

He has also choreographed two works, Moonlight and Prelude for WAB’s 2019 and 2020 Genesis seasons.
Jack’s other repertoire includes George Balanchine’s Allegro Brillante, Val Caniparoli’s Aria, Kenneth MacMillan’s Concerto, Graeme Murphy’s Air and Other Invisible Forces and Krzysztof Pastor’s In Light and Shadow.
