Bio: 

Born in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, Maggie graduated from the National Ballet School in 2001 with a personal achievement award. Her professional career began with the National Ballet of Canada.  She also participated in three summer programs at the Banff Centre for the Performing Arts.  Maggie danced with the Veronica Tennant and Anna Pavlova Dance Projects, helped to create a new work with DNA Theatre and taught at the York School of Dance (Toronto), The Harbour Dance Centre (Vancouver) and RNB Dance (Vancouver). Personal highlights onstage include performing works by James Kudelka, John Alleyne, Twyla Tharp, William Forsythe, Johan Inger, Crystal Pite, Medhi Walerski, Aszure Barton, Kevin O’Day, Emily Molnar, Jorma Elo, Donald Sales and Jacopo Godani. It was an honour for her to contribute, through dance, to the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. Most notable was a solo project with Margie Gillis called “Moon on White Crow” that premiered at Dances for a Small Stage. Maggie has been chosen to participate in a project for which the purpose is the preservation of Margie’s legacy. Maggie completed her seventh Season with Ballet BC in 2013 as Giselle in Jose Navas’s world premier of the classic tale. A certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor, she is a graduate of a body-based expressive arts approach at the Tamalpa Institute and explores choreography as parallel career paths to performing.
