Christine Jowers, reporting for The Dance Enthusiast

Right now I am:


If I weren't in the dance field I'd be:

A musician. I used to play the clarinet when I was younger.
If not, then a psychologist.

My first dance job was with:

Ronald K. Brown/Evidence

My first job was:

working at a Hospital in Queens during my summers in H.S.

When I rest I like to:

sleep, sleep, sleep!

When I am working I need to:

Focus and work on both my short and long term goals

Something I will never forget is:

 Where I came from

My biggest challenge is:

To be fearless in spite of…

My greatest joy is:

spending time with family and friends, being able to do what I LOVE, and sharing it with people.

The qualities I look for in a dancer:

Someone who has a good use of their plie- a good earthbound quality.
My work has a sense of theater, so I look for dancers who have a natural acting ability.
They can NOT be afraid to become a character.
Someone who has a great energy about them.
The rehearsal space is very sensitive.
Attitudes- not welcome!

I cannot tolerate:

pettiness, rudeness, lateness, and laziness

The most influential person in my life is:

my mother


I don't know where I'd be without her

The thing I love about New York:

that my family is here.
I was born and raised in Queens!

What I wish I could change:

Nothing, because all the events that have happened in my life have brought me to this very place.

I am enthusiastic about: 

Our generation really supporting each other. It's such a great feeling!
