Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre Returns to Seton Hill University

The event is part of a larger partnership to bring PBT dancers to the university for classes and workshops while also fostering programs and performances in the Greensburg area.


Seton Hill University will be the location for the world premiere of three works by dancers from the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. This is the seventh performance by the theatre in Westmoreland County since 2011. During that year, PBT launched an initiative to “establish a performance residency in the area and connect PBT artists with audiences throughout the region.” Tickets for the performance range from $35-$100, and the event is open to the public.

“Millennial Movement: 3 World Premiere Works by Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre Dancers,” choreographed by Alejandro Diaz, William Moore and Cooper Verona, will premier at 7 p.m. on May 7 in the Seton Hill University Performing Arts Center.

“Seton Hill is proud to partner with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre to bring this premier dance event to the University’s downtown Greensburg campus,” says Seton Hill President Mary C. Finger in statement. “‘Millennial Movement’ will enhance the rich arts and cultural offerings Seton Hill provides in the City of Greensburg and will give our students the opportunity to learn more about their art from these talented professional dancers.”

“We are grateful to Seton Hill for this opportunity to perform for Greensburg audiences and think it will be mutually inspiring for PBT dancers and Seton Hill students to connect in the studio,” says Harris Ferris, PBT executive director, in a statement.
