It could be embarrassing, a Missouri criminal defense attorney admits. But Jennifer Bukowsky is hoping to gain a higher profile for her law firm by participating in Dancing with Missouri Stars later this week.
“In my business, I am the product. I have to seize opportunities to get the word out about my product … even if it means I’ll have to embarrass myself on the dance floor in the process,” she tells the Columbia Daily Tribune’s Art Axis blog.
However, she has been working hard to prepare for the event, just as she would for any other competition, and an “incredibly talented” dance partner, Jason Stotz of the Missouri Contemporary Ballet, gives her hope of carrying the event off with some style.
“I’m not sure whether he’ll be able to shoot me to the top in this competition, but I know he’s strong enough to throw me up into the air,” she says.
