Matthew Matsunami

Matthew has been dancing blues and fusion for over a decade, previously coming from the land of Latin and Argentine Tango, and since taking brief trips into the various Swings. He immediately fell in love with the improvisational freedom blues gives, while providing a structure to connect with another human. An absolute fiend for isolations and syncopations. His philosophy of partner dance - that it is highly conversational with plenty of adjectives, adverbs, and other parts of speech - is something he brings to dancing, teaching, and DJing. He strives to bring evocative music to dancers and empower them to intentionally connect and have whimsical, funky, and awe-inspiring dance conversations.
