Nittany Ballet, part of the Performing Arts School of
Central Pennsylvania (PASCP), since 2007, and served as
the organization’s artistic director from 2012-2019. As
artistic director of Nittany Ballet, Rebecca arranged two
major productions annually, in addition to smaller-scale
performances throughout the year, for which she
choreographed and set new and existing works on

direction of Marcia Dale Weary. During this time, she
trained with permanent and guest teachers including
Richard Cook, Leslie Hench, Darla Hoover, Melinda Jones
Howe, Lisa de Ribere, Violette Verdy, Gennadi Vostrikov
and Deborah Wingert, among others. She studied ballet
and modern dance with Washington School of Ballet and
Delaware Dance Co. Rebecca danced principal roles with
both CPYB and Delaware Dance Co. and performed
various principal and ensemble roles with Virginia Opera,
Virginia Musical Theatre and Theatre Harrisburg. Local
theater credits include performances with FUSE
Productions and State College Community Theatre, as
well as choreography for SCCT. Rebecca holds a B.S. in
