CHRISTINE JOWERS | ASSOCIATE ARTIST

Christine Jowers has toured the USA, the UK, and Caribbean as a solo performer, choreographer and teacher, sharing her passion for the art of dance and its history with many audiences.

After working as a principal dancer with the Doris Humphrey Repertory Company, performing lead roles of Humphrey and Eleanor King to critical acclaim across the nation, she created Moving Arts Projects. Her premiere cj/MAPs production, THE SINGULAR VOICE OF WOMAN opened in 1997 to full houses in London, England and was noted for its “exceptional solos”. Judith Mackrell, dance critic for The Guardian UK, hailed Christine as “ not only a remarkable performer, but an important dance historian…”

Her following productions REVEALING ISADORA… and AWAKENING THE DANCING GODDESSES OF NYC were performed in New York City both as full concert evenings and in excerpts at such venues as The World Financial Center, The New Jersey Center for Performing Arts, The Joyce Soho, Joes Pub, OK Harris Dance Gallery, DanceNowNYC, The Henry Street Settlement, The University Settlement, The Culture Project, The Children’s Museum of Manhattan, and The 14th Street Y. Each show has woven classical modern dance; performance art, video, theater, and voice work with dance history to create imaginative moving experiences. Christine has collaborated on her projects with such renowned artists as Margie Gillis (International Solo Artist), Janet Eilber (Principal Dancer/ Artistic Director of The Martha Graham Company), Ann Carlson (Bessie Award Winning Performance Artist) Janis Brenner (Bessie Award Winner) Larry Keigwin (Bessie Award Winner) Kun Yang Lin (Outstanding Choreographer Award 2002) and Catherine Gallant (Artistic Director of Dances by Isadora and acclaimed Duncan interpreter.)

Christine has been on the faculty of the Jose Limon Institute in New York City, and The Laban Centre for Movement and Dance Studies, and Danceworks in the UK. She has also been a guest-teaching artist at the Islington Arts Factory, The Liverpool School of Performing Arts, and Roehampton College in the UK, as well as Goucher College, Kean College and various educational institutions in the USA. Her particular interest in introducing young audiences to the beauty and inspiration of dance has led Christine to foster outreach programs, MOVING KIDS, in communities throughout the east coast and the Virgin Islands.

In 2007, Christine founded The Dance Enthusiast Webzine www.dance-enthusiast.com in partnership with Will Arnold, graphic designer and web artist. She acts as writer and editor for this, the newest Moving Arts Project, bringing the art and stories of dancers to audiences through the medium of the World Wide Web.

Christine lives in NYC with her husband and two sons. In addition to creating Moving Arts Projects, she teaches Pilates and works as a voice over artist. Christine is very pleased to be working with Choreo Theatro Company and the talented Irina Constantine Poulos.
