Pleasant Grove, Utah
I’m from Pleasant Grove, Utah and began clogging when I was seven years old. I have been clogging with Rocky Mountain Express under the direction of Greg and Maria Tucker for almost ten years. I have had the wonderful opportunity to tour with them in New York City, New York; Branson, Missouri; and San Francisco, California. I am studying Family Life with a Human Development emphasis at BYU.
Reflections on Visiting China
I loved visiting China and getting to experience the beautiful culture and interact with such wonderful people. Getting to perform with Contemporary Dance Theatre and the Beijing Dance Academy dancers was an amazing experience that I won’t ever forget. I was impressed by how talented everyone was and I feel so lucky to have been able to perform with them. One of my favorite experiences of the entire trip was getting to interact with audience members after our show. They were all so warm, friendly and excited, it made me happy to be around them. I also loved getting to visit the Forbidden City, hike the Great Wall of China, and just spend time in Beijing. I hope I’ll get to visit China again someday.
个人简历：马特是杨百翰大学音乐舞蹈剧院（ MDT）专业二年级的学生。这是他在当代舞蹈剧场舞团（ CDT ）的第二年。他对于身在其中的每一分钟都十分喜欢。当马特不跳舞，不唱歌，或者不演出时，他喜欢打排球，网球和拍照片。马特非常感谢杨百翰大学，以及每一个使得这次中国演出和文化交流成为可能的人。“这是我一辈子的财富。我永远都不会忘记。并且在我的一生中，我都会永远珍惜这一次访问的经历”。
