Kitty Pilgrim-Morris


Dance Artist (Magical Minds)

Dancing Mindfulness Facilitator

Kitty is entering the final year of her BA Hons at London Contemporary Dance School. For Kitty, dancing is a mindful practice in itself that now feels integral to her general and mental wellbeing; it feels more important than ever as a way to connect, share and learn with others while experiencing a joy like no other. To be able to share this approach with others is an honour for Kitty, who believes the work of Truefitt Collective is crucial.

 

Kitty was a Royal Opera House Young Creative in 2019, and has previously choreographed several full-length amateur musicals. Within her degree, she has worked with choreographers such as Eva Recacha, James Cousins, Richard Alston and Anthony Matsena. After graduating, Kitty would like to perform and choreograph socially conscious dance theatre works that are all at once "meaningful, absurd and inclusive".
