Matthew is from Hythe in Kent and is unique amongst the company in that he has no formal training. He was introduced to dance at Brockhill Park School and worked with numerous youth dance groups in Kent, as well as touring throughout the UK in summer 2009 as part of the BalletBoyz Without Walls commission. Had he not been selected to join the company, Matthew would have completed his first stage application to join The Royal Marines. Matthew appeared in BalletBoyz: The Next Generation for More4. This is Matthew’s eighth season with the company.
