Artistic Director and choreographer of T.MAJ Dance Company, Titilayo Majoyeogbe dedicates her life to invigorate individuals and communities by exposing dance as a creative impact to help produce change. She aims to research, develop, create and present an evocative multidisciplinary body of work around the issues of social justice and movement.  By maintaining this vision, she holds a core commitment to examine unethical issues in history that are thought provoking to refine the perspective of today’s America.  Recently, Titilayo developed a residency at The Society of Performing of Arts in Lagos, Nigeria to create an avenue that reflects physical practice and choreography to share the wealth of professional dance knowledge. Titilayo graduated from Georgian Court University with a BA in dance on a scholarship reflecting her academic and performance excellence. While at Georgian Court, she received the GCU’s Dance Choreography Award and was recognized in the Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities. That year, she continued her career with Urban Bush Woman [intern] and the Charles O. Anderson’s Dance Theatre X [apprentice dancer] and is now a performer with Umoja Dance Company. Her creative work has been showcased in Movement Research at Judson Church, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Creators Collective in Brooklyn, NY, Dance NJ Show Up & Dance Event, San Jose Dance Company Festival and NJPAC just to name a few. Titilayo pursued her MFA in dance from Hollins University in collaboration with Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts in Frankfurt, Germany on a fellowship award.
