Zoroark's physical movepool is terrible, so Swords Dance isn't viable on it, but it's a good chance for surprising opponents. This might be better:
-Swords Dance
-Sucker Punch
-Low Sweep
Nature: Naive
EVs: 252 Atk/4 SAtk/252 Spe
Item: Life Orb

Low Sweep and Flamethrower are there for Steel Pokemon, the latter particularly for Forretress, Ferrothorn, Scizor and physical walls in general. Night Slash can be used over either, but you lose coverage. You also forgot about Nasty Plot Zoroark, who, at times, has an easier time to set up depending on the Pokemon it's disguised as.

I like your moveset except Aerial Ace is almost necessary on him. Also, I never Forgot about Nasty Plot Zoroark but it's so common, putting it here would be reinventing the wheel and is super predictable which isn't good on a pokemon based on surprising / Hit and running. I might update it with a nasty plot sweeping Zoroark but I'd avoid that for the most part.
