Ballet Idaho fills its executive director position with an Idaho native

Jennifer Weaver will join Ballet Idaho as its executive director at the end of May. Weaver replaces Paul Kaine, who retired at the end of the company’s season in April.

An Idaho native, Weaver grew up in Council and graduated from Boise State University with a degree in business. She comes to the dance world from the medical field. She most recently worked at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colo.

You can meet Weaver and Ballet Idaho Artistic Director Peter Anastos at a welcoming reception from 4 to 6 p.m. June 11 at Bonefish Grill, 855 W. Broad St., in BoDo.
