A native of Chicago, IL, James Morrow is the founder and artistic director of james morrow/The Movement. Coming from an urban background, Morrow yearns to see the classical vocabulary prevalent in concert dance integrated into the hip-hop culture with which he is submerged. His movement has become a fusion of modern, contemporary, and urban dance styles. His choreography can be seen on companies throughout the U.S. and internationally, working in Utrecht, Vienna, Mumbai, Puebla, Krasnoyarsk, and new Brighton. He has worked with many Chicago dance companies as a performer - including MOMENTA - and has also performed nationally and internationally. He is the recipient of many awards and holds an MFA in dance from Hollins University/The American Dance Festival. He is currently on the dance faculty at Salem State University in Massachusetts, and recently taught dance in Mumbai!
