King of the Dance Hall

Chris Brown told us in his hit single to ''Turn up the music – I need it in my life.'' That holds for Zach, too, who you might catch gyrating and swaying to the club hits at Town Danceboutique on the weekends. But unlike most, he's actually getting paid to do it. After all, even this 20-year-old member of the Air Force and self-described ''geek'' needs a creative outlet. Zach, who hails from New Hampshire, says he's grateful to be out of the cold and is looking forward to summer when he can visit the beach. In his spare time, he plays volleyball and tennis, and works out about six times a week. One thing is clear with this natural athlete: You're going to need a lot of stamina just to keep up.
