Dawson Wallace Dance Project represents an unprecedented merger of artistic direction between Gregory Dawson, artistic director of San Francisco-based dawsondancesf, and James Wallace, former artistic director of Denver-based David Taylor Dance Theatre (DTDT).

James Wallace, a nationally acclaimed choreographer, was born in Hutchinson, Kansas and began his training at Friends University before studying at Arizona State University where he graduated summa cum laude with a BFA in dance performance and choreography. He danced professionally for the San Diego Opera, Kim RobardsDance, City Ballet of San Diego and Company C Contemporary Ballet of San Francisco. While apprenticing at Colorado Ballet, he choreographed two major works, "Carmina Burana" and "Inversion," each to high critical acclaim; and as a choreographer in residence for DTDT, he created works for American National Ballet, Boulder Ballet and Ballet Nouveau. Among his achievements, Wallace received the American Ballet Builders award for New Choreography presented by New Choreographers on Point and earned a New York City premiere for his piece, "Suspect Lines."
