Hidden in all of us is a metaphorical closet where we have hoarded our darkest secrets, irrational fears, and unresolved traumas. In Dancing Out of the Closet, Matthew Shaffer exposes his outlandish childhood dramas, zany coming of age (while coming out of the closet) young adult debacles, and the "pinch me" moments that come from working alongside superstars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Amy Poehler on his quest for fame, fortune, and a size thirty waistline. Hilariously self-deprecating, addictively charming, and packed with pop culture commentary, Shaffer will have you crying with laughter, blushing with relatable embarrassment, and your heart exploding from shock that comes from an honest look inward.

Dancing Out of the Closet is the perfect book for everyone who has survived childhood with a dream in their heart, those still seeking a stage to release their inner dancer, and anyone ready to laugh their way through the trials and triumphs of this journey we call life.

Matthew Shaffer wrote, directed, and starred in his first production when he was seven years old and has been entertaining family members (and audiences) ever since. When Matthew isn't busy performing on stage and screen, he spends his time traveling the globe as an educator, choreographer, and content creator, collaborating with husband, Jeff Payton for their production company, A Group Production, Los Angeles, California. Shaffer is the author of the Amazon #1 New Release, So You Want To Be A Dancer.
