Open & Jazz

I was born in New Brunswick, in the small town of Bathurst. I started dance at the young age of 3 yrs old. I was trained at Dance Acadie (New Brunswick) from age of 3 to 18. Dance has always been a part of me and helped me get through difficult times.

The dance studio was a place where I always felt at home. I took every class of every style that was given. I always knew I wanted to keep dancing and make a living with my passion. Being a professional dancer has always been my dream. One of my biggest goals when I was young was to be part of So You Think You Can Dance Canada. I knew the odds of making it were slim, bring from a small town. I knew I had to make a big move. My parents were always behind me in every decision I took. I never let the negative comments get to me, I always kept my mind on my goals. I finished high school in New Brunswick and moved to Montreal with the help of 8Count to pursue my dance career. I was recruited by choreographer Steve Bolton. I left everything behind, including friends and family, took the risk and made the move. My family still lives in New Brunswick. I have a little sister (Danica, 24 yrs) and a big brother (Marco, 29 yrs). They follow my every move even though they are miles away.

Ever since, I accomplished so many goals that I’ve set for myself, and started my dance career in Canada. One of them was being on So You Think You Can Dance Canada Season 3. Not only did I accomplish that goal, but I finish as a finalist – Top 4. I’ve also since then accomplished, dancing in the videogame “The Micheal Jackson The Experience” from Ubisoft with the Kinect for the Xbox 360; assisted alongside Megan Lawson (FanyPack) and Phil “Packman” Shbeeb (IamMe) for the Micheal Jackson The Immortal Tour from Cirque du Soleil choreographed by NappyTabs; I danced in the movie “Mirror Mirror” featuring stars such as Julia Roberts; Nathan Lane; danced in the movie “Make your move 3D” choreographed by NappyTabs, directed by Duane Adler and starring Derek Hough and BoA; was on America”s Best Dance Crew Season 7 with Irratik; danced for Ceelo Green, Def Leppard, Melissa Etheridge and Kelly Clarkson on the Quebec version of the hit TV show The Voice (La Voix); danced on the Bell Center stage for signer Marie-Mai and danced in the movie Step Up 5 : All In.

I am now living in Los Angeles and accomplished my biggest goal yet. I am dancing with Jennifer Lopez in her three year residency show in Las Vegas at the Axis theatre in Planet Hollywood as my first job in the USA. I’ve also along the way danced in JLO”s newest music videos “Ain”t your mama”, “Dinero”, “El Anillo” and “Limitless”; danced with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart at the MTV Movie Awards, I danced with Hailee Steinfeld at the RDMAs and danced with Rihanna at the VMAs.

Even though I have accomplished so many of my dreams, my goals do not stop there. I believe that as a dancer and as a person, we always have more than we can learn and achieve, and one should never settle. If you can dream it, then it can become a reality.

James Marino

Hip hop & open

James “Combo” Marino was born and raised in East Hartford, CT. After playing in Italy, this soccer player turned dancer at 20 years old started his hand in dancing by teaching himself Justin Timberlake’s Justified tour choreography in his father’s office when he came home from school.  While attending college for accounting, after he graduated he realized he wanted to pursue dance as a career soon after.  This led him to commute 2 1/2 hours (each way) 4 to 5 days a week in order to train and work in New York City with some of the industries finest choreographers, including one of his mentors Rhapsody James.

After 2 years of that lifestyle and being signed to Bloc Talent Agency, he felt ready enough to make his way out west to Los Angeles and within 6 months booked his first major gig.  It was the NFL Kickoff Television performance with Mariah Carey in Rockefeller Center, where he met and worked closely with his biggest inspiration, Eddie Morales.   This was the moment that truly kick-started his whole career.  Since then James has toured and worked with artists such as Missy Elliott, Gwen Stefani, The Backstreet Boys, Mariah Carey, Fergie, Eve, Rick Ross, Victoria Monèt, Illuminate, Nike, Target, A.D.I.D.A.S., Verizon Wireless, and many more.

James’ most special and memorable moment came in February of 2017.  After years of dreaming, training, and endlessly remaining disciplined towards his major career goal; he accomplished the primary reason he packed his bags and moved to Los Angeles for.  Choreographer Marty Kudelka reached out and booked him to perform with Justin Timberlake on the biggest night in Hollywood, The Academy Awards.  Now with new goals and aspirations, James continuously pushes himself and his mentality to new limits.  Currently mentoring the youth as much as he can in his downtime, he also teaches at Millennium Dance Complex and Debbie Reynolds Dance Studio in LA and teaches dance class both domestically and internationally, in order to share the hunger, work ethic, and experience he is constantly accumulating.

He recently wrapped up the Backstreet Boys Residency “Larger Than Life” in Las Vegas, NV at Planet Hollywood and teaches all around the world in his time off from performing.
