Matt grew up in Totowa NJ and always had an urge to perform. Starting dance at the age of 7, Matt didn’t quite like it at first. Within a few weeks of his first jazz class he fell in love with dance. He started to train at For Dancers Only at the age of 10, then did competition dance throughout high school. Growing up dance was not the easiest for him, but he trained harder every day, and pushed himself to improve. Matt has trained in ballet, jazz, musical theater, street styles, contemporary, and modern. Just recently Matt has performed in the opening number for Broadway Cares, “Gypsy of the Year Competition 2015”. Matt is inspired by performers such as Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra, and hopes to inspire others just as they have. His favorite saying is, “Live your life through your imagination because it is the only place you are truly free”.
