"Where the Hell Is Matt?"

For those of you who have had your head stuck in a hole for the past several years, I present ... Matt.

Matt's videos are like brain candy, sunshine for the heart, guaranteed to make you smile or cry or both.

If you haven't ever seen his short videos or heard his stories, his website and FAQs are definitely worth checking out. 

Here's his first video:

Here's the video he made last year. You'll find the Austin stop on this one. I'm still kicking myself for not dragging our lazy butts out of the house to dance with Matt on Town Lake.

He has recently come out with a new book, which I haven't seen but which has gotten good reviews: Where the Hell is Matt?: Dancing Badly Around the World


  1. Thanks so much for this Camille! (i guess I'm one of those with their head in the sand - or the hole of mommyhood at least :) I love this!! Oh the things that make me cry...

  2. I've been following Matt for a few years now and I just love what he's doing. It's such a simple thing...a silly dance...but to do it all over the world, with strangers who become instant gets me every, single time. I love Matt.

  3. Andrea, I know exactly what you mean! I've seen his videos several times, and I always tear up. Be sure to check out his site: His FAQ list and lecture are really interesting.

    Moxy Jane, I have this fantasy of having him come speak at a co-op class some time. What are the odds of that? LOL

  4. Thank you for sharing this! I am now a huge Matt fan.

    Looks like I'm going to be a fellow Austinite!
