American James McGinn has been working at the cutting edge of performance, dance, theatre and contemporary arts from Paris to Brooklyn since completing his training as a classical dancer. A strong influence on his artistry were years spent training with the American Dance Festival, The New School / Eugene Lang College and as a danceWEB scholar at Impulstanz in Vienna. Central to his study at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels were Trans/Posthumanistische Theory and Composition. He received important impetus for his artistic achievements from Jonah Bokaer, Wally Cardona, Miguel Gutierrez, Ishmael Houston-Jones, John Jasperse, Daniel Linehan, Jen McGinn, Marten Spangberg and Robert Steijn.
