Dance With Me

For Jeté Dongieux, dancing has never really been a hobby-- it's her therapy

The Beginning

"I started dancing when I was two, but I never really realized it was an option until I got accepted into CalArts. It took some convincing that I was good enough to pursue it as a career.

Music?

"It all really depends on the mood, usually something funky with a cool beat and textures to play with."

Inspiration?

"Bob Fosse hands down! Such a classic and so awkward and somehow sexy at the same time. And who doesn’t like Chicago?"

Off Stage?

"I have always been creative in different mediums but most recently I started choreographing, filming, and editing my own dance films. I think it’s amazing how you can put people in different worlds by using different camera angles and backdrops."

Advice?

"This is brutal, but dance is brutal. You better love it more than life itself, because there's always going to be someone prettier, skinnier, and hungrier than you."

Up Next?

"I'm auditioning for a job that will land me in Tokyo for six months!"
