Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School Presents Spring Performance 2012
WHO: Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School Student and Pre-Professional Divisions
WHAT: Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School will close the year by showcasing the talent and diversity of more than 150 students with the 2012 Spring Performance. Under the direction of PBT Artistic Director Terrence S. Orr and School Directors Marjorie Grundvig and Dennis Marshall, the students will perform George Balanchine’s Serenade, excerpts from August Bournonville’s Napoli and La Sylphide as well as original PBT School works. Class Concert, a new work choreographed by PBT School Principal Anastasia Wovchko, will feature students ranging from Level 1-b of the Student Division through Level VI of the Pre-Professional Division. Set to music by Carl Czerny, the work is inspired by the progression of barre and centre work through a dancer’s training. Another new work, A Voice in Time, choreographed by PBT School Faculty Member Alan Obuzor, will feature students of the Pre- Professional Division performing contemporary choreography set to music by Philip Glass.
Friday’s dress rehearsal is open to media for photographing and filming.
