Jennifer Weber is the founder and artistic director of Decadancetheatre—an all-female, hip-hop, dance theater company based in Brooklyn. Trained in dance studios and nightclubs in NYC, Philadelphia, and London, Weber has always been a student not just of dance technique, but of the larger cultural meanings of urban movement. As an artist, Weber seeks to explore hip-hop as the key emerging language of a global youth culture.
Weber’s work has toured across the US, UK, Japan and France in venues such as Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, The Apollo, Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, London’s Southbank Center, The Everyman in Liverpool, New York City Center, San Francisco Hip-Hop Dance Festival, and Bumbershoot in Seattle. She has also choreographed for the NBA’s Miami Heat, American Express, Uber, Ulta, L’Oreal Matrix, Reebok, Bloomberg, Philosophy, Marc Jacobs, CK1 and UK TV show, Blue Peter. Recently she choreographed the US Premier of Bryony Lavery’s Stockholm at Stageworks/Hudson, Trouble, A New Rock Musical at NYMF and James Brown–Get On the Good Foot for The Apollo Theater with director Otis Sallid and assisted Tony Award winner George Faison (The Wiz) on the Sankofa Dance Project. Weber and The Deca Crew were featured on Season 2 of TruTV’s theatrical reality completion, FAKE OFF.
Currently, Weber is the director and choreographer of The Hip Hop Nutcracker, which will tour the US and Russia in the 2015 holiday season.
Weber holds a BA in Communications (Cum Laude) from the University of Pennsylvania and is a member of Lincoln Center Director’s Lab.
