Matt has dabbled in various dance forms since childhood, and of them all Blues has definitely had the strongest pull on his heart. Originally a Dunedin Swing Rioter, Matt set off to travel after finishing University and stumbled across a Blues exchange in Edinburgh in 2013. That fateful weekend, the Blues flame was lit under his heart and has been burning fiercely ever since.
Matt’s main joys in Blues are the wonders of Ambidancing (switching roles), the finesse of Micro movements, and conversing in the dance. And of course generally nerding out about Blues.
Matt is one of the key Blues teachers in Auckland, and frequently travels overseas to chase Blues dance events. He has recently come back from teaching workshops in Europe and UK, and is super excited to be teaching again in Dunedin!
