So You Want to be a Dancer: Practical Advice and True Stories from a Working Professional.pdf
Matthew Shaffer's more than twenty years as a performer, choreographer, director, Broadway collaborator, writer, and producer has allowed him opportunities to work with celebrities like Megan Mullaly, Ben Stiller, and the elite competition team of Dance Moms. So You Want to Be a Dancer is the ultimate book for anyone who has to fight the urge to sashay down grocery store aisles or school hallways. Shaffer discusses everything from how he got into the industry to practical advice on what to do when you get there-from how to audition and book a job to dealing with the movie stars when you get there.
Matthew Shaffer wrote, directed, and starred in his first production when he was seven years old and has been entertaining audiences (and family members) ever since! When Matthew isn't busy traveling the globe as a master teacher and dance judge, he continues to collaborate and create work with Jeff Payton and their production company, A Group Production in Los Angeles, California.
