Early life and education
Weare has presented her choreography globally, in cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, London, Belgrade and Vienna. Upon moving to New York City in 2000, she was twice asked to present work by Dance Theater Workshop, and presented work at Joyce Soho, Danspace at St. Mark’s Church, Judson Church, DancemOpolitan at Joe’s Pub, The 92nd St. Y, The Puffin Room, New York University’s Frederick Loewe Theater, The Kitchen, WAX, BAX, and La Mama. She has collaborated and shared her concerts with many choreographers such as Paul Taylor and Karl Anderson.
While she is a minimalist choreographer, emotionally she explores the areas of love, femininity, strength and sexuality. Her movement ranges from seductive partnering and strong lifts, to witty gestures and lush movement phrases. She is interested in the kind of theatrical dance wherein narrative is implied but never specified and gives evidence of having thought deeply and fruitfully about her intentions. The New York Times noted: "Ms. Weare is simply the choreographer of her own piece."

She was awarded with the 2006/2007 Joyce Soho Residency, and Gwen Welliver mentored her in the studio.
