From Ariana DeBose to Troye Sivan, queer dance is in its golden age. Add Jennifer Weber to that list of movers and shakers. The queer multihyphenate received two Tony nominations this year in the Best Choreography category — for & Juliet and KPOP. Weber says opening two Broadway shows in the same week was her most thrilling (and challenging) accomplishment of 2023.
As a choreographer, Weber is still very busy with & Juliet, a queer-themed, feminist take on the Shakespeare classic (where the leading lady lives!). The jukebox musical is especially brought to life by its dancers and is still rocking Broadway as well as Australia. It’s soon heading out for U.S. and U.K. tours.
Weber, who’s choreographed everything from Broadway’s Cruel Intentions to the TV movie Disney Zombies 2, is expanding her creative reach, finding her groove at the center of a new project. “This holiday season you can also see my work as the director, choreographer, and co-creator of The Hip Hop Nutcracker, which will be on tour across the U.S., featuring hip-hop pioneer Kurtis Blow,” Weber says.
For Weber, dance is freedom: “My art is inspired by finding new ways of using movement to find your power and tell your story.” @jenniferwebernyc
