Matilda Maginnis (Tilly)


Tilly was a Birmingham Royal Ballet Associate and a member of Rutherford Dance Company Youth, where she performed works by Adam Rutherford, CaraBdanza and Carlos Pons Guerra. In 2018 she graduated from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance with a first class (Hons) degree, performing works by Jamaal Burkmar, Gavin Coward and Hetain Patel. She recently graduated with a distinction, a Master’s in Dance Performance and Professional Practices from the University of Salford. She toured the UK with Emergence Dance, performing works specially created by Sharon Watson and Joss Arnott.

Tilly is looking forward to working with new dancers, developing herself as a creator and a performer, and engaging with local communities of Stoke-On-Trent.

Tilly is a keen dance photographer specialising in movement, body and head shots for dancers. She has been fortunate enough to have her work exhibited in Vital Stages at Studio 3 Arts in London (2019) and Derby Dancing at Déda (2018)
