MAGGIE LAMOON

​About Me

My name is Maggie Lambo but I typically go by my artist alias Maggie Lamoon. I am 26 years old
and I am currently based in London. I have travelled most of the Asian continent as well as much of
Europe and Africa. I am mixed Ukrainian and Nigerian and I have grown up in the UK for most of
my life. From the age of five, I attended Drussilla Duffill Theatre School, a prestigious dance
institution associated with the Royal Academy of Dance where I studied Ballet, Modern and Jazz. I
trained at the school for over twelve years achieving the highest rank in each of my chosen dance
mediums. I have also completed eight years of examinations with the London Academy of Music
and the Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) focusing on “Devised Theatre”.
In the year 2012, I began my undergraduate degree at the world-renowned Kings College London
university. Throughout the course of my studies, I continued to train as a dancer and began my
journey as a choreographer. I trained regularly at Studio 68 London and began to explore new dance
styles such as Jazz Funk, Heels, Urban, Commercial, Hip-Hop, Contemporary and Dancehall. In the
year 2013, I was scouted for the return of TLC’s hit show Shopaholic Showdown (formerly
Ultimate Shopper) going on to become the winner of Episode 1. The following year, I was
contacted by the internationally acclaimed Tamil RnB artist MIA to perform my dance set live at
the UK’s annual Glastonbury Music Festival and join the artist’s political mission to “Stop Tamil
Deportation”.
After graduating with a BA honours degree in English Literature and Language in the summer of
2015, I received an international offer to teach dance and English classes in the city of Shenzhen,
China. I lived in Shenzhen for four and half years where I was employed in numerous roles that
focused on the ESL education sector. While I developed my knowledge and expertise in teaching, I
worked part-time as a dancer and choreographer, teaching workshops and classes at various dance
studios in both mainland China and Hong Kong. I have been lucky enough to work closely with and
perform alongside many famous Chinese and Taiwanese artists such as Jane Zhang, Wei Yunxi,
Paul Wong, Jolin Tsai, Li Yuchun, Jay Chou, Chen He, JJ Lin, Zhang Yishan, Joey Yung, Ami,
MC Hotdog and Ronghao Li.
I also worked as a part-time model during my time in China, gaining experience in working with
urban/streetwear brands; lingerie brands; doing costume/character shoots; hair modelling;
product/catalogue shoots; TVC’s and advertising campaigns.
