"Ja’Malik’s unpredictable physical inventiveness and theatrical sense mark him as a choreographer to watch."- Roslyn Sulcas
“This choreographer shows the fine eye of someone who knows how to push dancers to their technical limits while keeping that technique in the service of an idea or visual statement."- Pamela Squires
Ja' Malik’s work with the summer intensive students, “Love, Because,” was inspired by a Cirque de Soleil show that he saw in Las Vegas and The Beatles music that accompanied it. He had not listened to The Beatles before.
