Maggie McLaughlin

Maggie fell in love with dance at the age of 9, as one of Miss Kaitlin’s first students at Bayside Dance. Since then, she has completed numerous SFD ballet and jazz exams, achieving honours with distinction multiple times, in turn receiving both dancer of the year and the jazz exam award. Motivated by her love for performing, Maggie was a part of the Young Dancers’ Company from 2016 to 2021, competing in solo, duo and group routines and achieving awards for many of her performances. In 2019, Maggie was successfully nominated for a scholarship to attend the Australian Dance Festival in Sydney, where she participated in classes and workshops run by industry professionals. Maggie has assisted junior classes for many years, and more recently, has completed all four levels of the DanceStep student teacher training program, participating in both theory and practical work to develop her skills, knowledge and experience. This year, Maggie received entry into a Bachelor of Primary Education, and is excited to take on her own classes, sharing her dedication, passion and love for dance with her students.
