Jennifer Weber holds an M.F.A. from the University of Iowa where she was an Iowa Arts Fellow and was a recipient of the Caroline H. Newhouse Scholarship. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She has been on faculty at the College at Brockport SUNY, University of Utah, the University of Iowa, the University of Iowa Youth Ballet, and Burklyn Ballet Theater as the Intermediate Director. She danced professionally with Omaha Theater Company, Ballet Quad Cities, and Ballet Nebraska. Ms. Weber’s choreographic work has been presented internationally and nationally, spanning full length narratives, such as The Nutcracker to abstract contemporary works. She has presented her scholastic work at conferences including CORPS de Ballet International, World Dance Alliance Americas, Royal Academy of Dance, and the Evans Somatic Conference. Her research engages critical approaches to existing codified dance techniques to reimagine the ways in which the various training methods, practices, and genres of dance can be in conversation. The direct areas of application she investigates are dance pedagogy, creative process, and the individual artist. As full time faculty at Dixie State University, she teaches technique, theory, creative practices, and also works with the Dance Performance productions.
