Christine E. Dow is a graduate of Ramapo College of New Jersey with a B.A. in Fine Arts: Theater - and is a certified Teacher of English and Speech and Drama, who has been teaching at Park Ridge Junior/Senior High School for the past eight years. She has taught theater and improv at summer camps in New York and New Jersey since 2003. She ran the Ramapo College Explorers Theater Camp from 2015-2017. Her philosophy of theater for young people is one of connection: the actor’s mind can be like that of the technician or designer; in every comedian, there is some sadness; and we can look to our greatest tragedies to find absurd humor. Our young people are one of our greatest resources. Christine is thrilled to be a part of Erin Calev’s effort to help budding artists expand their minds and explore the expanse of their talents.
