Miss Mattea started dancing at a young age and fell in love the moment she stepped into her first class. From being a kid dancing at the studio to joining her high school's dance team, dance has always been there and is something she looked to when a little escape from reality was needed.
Dance is what shaped Miss Mattea into the person she is today and, through dance, she has met some of her greatest role models.
Miss Mattea is currently studying criminology at the university and she is beyond excited to get the opportunity to connect and bond with all the dancers and members at Move.
