Nicole Battestilli, who graduated with honors in 2012, has leveraged her theater degree and prodigious planning ability to become the new general manager of Pasion y Arte Flamenco in Philadelphia.

This feminist Flamenco dance company “embraces elements of modern and traditional dances, multimedia, theater, and a progressive cultivation of feminist ideas in its expression of modern Flamenco.”

Battestilli studied theater and dance at IUP and managed IUP’s hosting of the Region II Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival, coordinating facilities and resources for over 1,200 student and faculty participants in a four-day festival of plays, workshops, and expositions in the dead of winter.
