Monique Jonas is still only at the beginning of her dance career and she’s already worked with Rambert Dance, Kim Brandstrup, New Adventures and Richard Alston Dance Company. Not only that, but she’s also started her own company-- Jona Dance Company .

She talks to Emma Lister about how aged 6 a twist of fate introduced her to dance, the frustrations that led her to start her own company, as well as her work on the Young King music video and the creation of her newly commissioned piece for Matthew Bourne’s Adventures in Film, Checkmate.
