L. James O'Gilvie began his dance education with Boston Ballet School’s City Dance Program. He was then invited to join their Classical Ballet program progressing to the Pre-Professional Program. While a student at Boston Ballet School, James performed as a Party Boy in The Nutcracker for 3 years. In 2017, following a summer studying at The Ailey School's Summer Intensive Program in New York, James was inspired to expand his dance education with other genres and joined Urbanity Dance as a student, Youth Company member and a Junior Apprentice with the Urbanity Underground Company. In the same year, James was invited to perform with Peter DiMuro/ Public Displays of Motion with Landmark Orchestra at the Hatch Shell and the Illuminous Festival in Downtown Crossing. James is excited to continue working with PDM this fall.
