He was also the winner for Ballet Austin's 2014 New American talent choreographic competition, a finalist in Milwaukee Ballet's 2013 Genesis Choreographic competition, and in 2011 the winner of the International Choreographic Competition at Festival des Arts de Saint-Sauveur.

James also has been featured in several music videos, feature films, and in TV documentaries and specials such as Elton John, Lyon, Kresha Turner, Ils Dansent, On the Road, and Soul Survivors. These experiences to work with such a variety of artists and different artistic avenues has given James the tools to create his own language and helped mold his voice and vision.
