Her biological mother, Dorothy Rowell, was of English descent and a Mayflower descendant, and her birth father, whose surname was Wilson, was of Jamaican descent. Rowell knew very little about her father hence she traveled to Jamaica to do some research.

When she was 16 days old, Rowell, along with her two sisters, Sheree and Lori, were surrendered to child services.
While living in Maine with foster parents Agatha C. and Robert Armstead, Rowell, at the age of 8 began ballet lessons. She became a member of Sigma Gamma Rho sorority, an African-American Greek-lettered sorority. After dancing with the American Ballet Theater II and the Juilliard School of Music Dance Extension program with Antony Tudor, Rowell accepted guest-artist teaching posts in New England
