Director Biography - Nicole Speletic, Davide Casiraghi

Nicole Speletic (
Dance artist and philosopher from New York City, was first in her family to attend college. Full merit scholarships provided opportunities to pursue her education from high school through doctoral level. She held a full PhD fellowship at Georgetown University, was granted the Mellon Teaching Fellowship, was co-director of the student dance company (G.U. Dance) and received two awards for her contribution to the arts.
Nicole trained and worked at the Limon Institute (7 years), was apprentice with Limon Dance Company, was Associate Director of Limon Professional Studies Program (3 years) and helped design that curriculum. She later completed one year of a master's degree in Dance Studies (Malta University).
Dr. Speletic strongly values her European heritage, and travels there annually offering workshops, presentations, projects and attending special courses. She also maintains an active practice in dance and philosophy, with daily class and cross-training, and through reflective theoretical analysis - each enriching the other. She would say that she has learned the most from life experiences: tutoring prisoners, changing her own name, marrying her sister, talking her father through to the next realm, standing up in court for a friend, dancing back-up at Bowery Ballroom and busking with a jazz band in the UK. And she believes in art's power to express the most profound and significant aspects of this human condition - to catalyze human experience – its mystery, delight or tragedy - into something meaningful and valuable.
