Matthew Heyse-Moore

He is a Mentor-in-training. Apart from leading and creating dances, he is a musician, composer and teacher based in Stroud, Gloucestershire. Much of Matthew's own music takes its inspiration from natural landscapes and the timelessness of ancient chant. He has written participatory multi-faith chants for the 2018 and 2019 Sacred Music Festivals in Stroud, embodying his conviction about the power of music to unite people and to build bridges. He believes in the capacity for music to articulate experiences and to heal conflicts in a way that words cannot. He sees the path of the Dances as both a personal healing journey and a positive tool in creating true community. His websites are
