As Artistic Vision Director at NPAFE, Julia Battist is charged with monitoring the quality of performing artists’ creative process, assuring that there is a match between artist and sponsor expectations.
In the United States after having been selected and contracted by Washington DC based Dakshina / Daniel Phoenix Singh Dance Company to perform with that renowned dance troupe, Julia has performed beautifully in complex original new works and classic modern dance pieces not only in Washington DC but across the United States, in Europe and in Asia as well. Her talents have impressed broad audiences and so many in the dance world; Julia is sought after and dances with other companies. This includes one of the best East Coast dance companies, Company E, where she performed at the Kennedy Center.
Julia has the knowledge, patience and passion to collaborate with people living to create, certainly to dance. She excels at recognizing the best among the many competing ideas as to just what great performing arts are. Her high level of commitment to bringing out the best in people is a special and valable asset for NPAFE and all the performing artists whom we support. (back to Team page)
