Dysfunctional Grace Dance Company (formerly Mattidance) was founded in October 2013 by artistic director Ami Mattison. After performing work at several area festivals, Ami decided she wanted to continue choreographing and creating. As Mattidance the company debuted its first show, Dancing Alone Together, with two sold-out performances in May 2014. In 2016 Mattidance was chosen as one of Dance Resource Center's Home Grown artists. DRC hosted Mattidance in a shared evening of work at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles. Ami and Mattidance were selected twice as finalists for the McCullum Theater's Annual Choreography Festival. Choreographer Ami Mattison has also showcased pieces for Medium.Live.Art, Talent Lab, Mashed Up Contemporary Dance, and Choreographer's Carnival.
2023 brings in the rebirth of Mattidance as Dysfunctional Grace Dance with more performances and educational opportunities on the horizon
