Profile

More

Originally from Co. Tipperary, Ireland James has been fascinated with dance and movement on screen and stage since he was young child.

Now based in London, James specialises in movement and dance drawing from his professional experience working in theatre, film and commercial projects.

His style of choreography is expressive and narratively driven with a versatile approach that lends itself to both filming and live performance. James’ diverse background has enabled a flexibility of style that allows him to tailor his work to client and director’s brief.

In terms of movement direction he has directed and coached actors on embodying different types of physicality, fight sequences, crowd movement and paranormal creatures.

An unique attribute that James brings to his work is his ability to quickly connect with and help realise the creative vision of various directors and artists. This proves invaluable in terms of working collaboratively and producing the best final results.

Initially trained at CSN Dance led by Alan Foley, he then received a full scholarship to attend Bird College of Dance, Music and Theatre Performance in London. He then went on to attain BA (1st class honours) in Professional Practice (Arts) from Middlesex University with a focus on the choreographic process.
