“If you’re afraid to dive, just dive afraid. Jump afraid, dare to do it and maybe you’ll land.”
– Viola Davis

Born and raised in the small town of Breton, Alberta, Kane took his first dancing steps at the age of four in his mother’s dance studio. Soon he started training in every style he could; hip hop, various funk styles, tap, contemporary, lyrical, jazz, ballet, and musical theatre. He spent years training, attending workshops across Canada, and was awarded scholarships to further his training. During these years, Kane also pursued acting and at the young age of 12, he performed in The Citadel Theatre’s productions of Peter Pan and Oliver- his first dive into professional work. After exploring his craft in Edmonton and Los Angeles, he settled in Vancouver where he currently resides.

Kane was a two season recurring character in the Golden Globe and Emmy award winning television musical series, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, as well as the Christmas special Zoey’s Extraordinary Christmas, choreographed by Mandy Moore. He also recurred as a dancer on the Paramount+ musical series Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies, choreographed by Jamal Sims. He had the unbelievable experience to be chosen to dance on stage with Janet Jackson during her Unbreakable world tour, a career highlight. Kane has worked with numerous world renowned choreographers such as Kenny Ortega, Luther Brown, Christopher Scott, Gil Duldulao, Jillian Meyers, Tony Testa, John Carrafa, Paul Becker, Jeff Mortensen, Louise Hradsky, Kelly Konno and many more. Other credits include Descendants 2 and 3, Freaky Friday (Disney), Riverdale, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (CW), Julie and the Phantoms (Netflix), Once Upon A Time (ABC), and a supporting role in Center Stage: On Pointe (Lifetime Television).

Kane is an active member of the UBCP/ACTRA Dance Committee, where they continue to push for the rights of dancers and choreographers to help each individual artist strive to achieve their goals in the film and television industry.
