During her time at UCLA, Maguire studied modern dance with Bella Lewitzky, Richard Oliver, Gloria Newman, William Bales, Betty Jones, and Gus Solomon, and became a member of the UCLA Dance Company. In 1971, Maguire joined theatre group the Mystic Knights of Oingo Boingo and performed with the group until 1973. She relocated to Toronto and began teaching dance in the music department at York University in 1974. From 1975 to 1979, Maguire was a full-time faculty member in York’s Department of Dance, where she taught technique, repertory and composition. She has also taught as a sessional instructor at York University and has been a faculty member of the School of Toronto Dance Theatre and the Ottawa Dance Centre. She has held many artist residencies and has been a guest teacher at a number of high schools and performing arts schools.

She has been a member of Dance Ontario, Toronto Dance Heritage Society, the Laidlaw Foundation Arts Education Advisory Committee, the Ottawa Board of Education Arts Advisory Council and an arts adviser for the Action Centre for Social Justice in Ottawa.
