About James Jimbo Murray
My name is James (Jimbo) Murray and I am a worshiping artist from New York City. I praise and glorify God through the artistic expression of dance. I am an Arts Administrator with the Alvin Ailey Dance Foundation, formerly with the School of the Arts at SUNY Purchase College.
Though exposed to dance at an early age, it wasn't until the age of eighteen that I began my dance training. I graduated from Long Island University - Brooklyn in 2014, were I double-majored in Business Management and Marketing, with a minor in Dance. In 2022, I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Master of Fine Art in Dance from University of California, Irvine.
