“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you.” –Maya Angelou“

Matt is thankful for this thing called dance and for all of the teachers that have helped him along the way. Native of St. Louis, he began dancing professionally with the Modern American Dance Company (MADCO) and was a company member with two Kansas City-based companies: Wylliams-Henry Contemporary Dance Company and the Owen/Cox Dance Group.
Matt received his BFA in Dance Performance from the Conservatory of Music and Dance at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Currently, Matt dances for the San Diego Dance Theater, teaches ballet and Horton technique and choreographs as much as possible. This is his second season with the San Diego Ballet.
