Executive Director of OISTAT 
Dance Critic

WEI is the youngest executive director to hold the position at OISTAT since its establishment in 1968, and also the first with diplomatic training. While in her teenage years, she practiced hip -hop dancing and later transitioned to contemporary dance. With a belief in the commonality between diplomacy and performing arts of "creating dialogues in daily life," WEI explores the relationship between contemporary dance and society by writing dance critiques, with a particular focus on feminism and gender issues.  She earned her MA degree in Arts Politics from Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.
