Seton Hill University is once again partnering with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre (PBT) to host a dance residency with PBT dancers for Seton Hill students. The residency program, in its second year, kicks off a semester of PBT activities on the Seton Hill campus, including master classes and PBT performances at the University’s Performing Arts Center.
During the three-day residency on January 23, 25 and 27, a group of 50 Seton Hill students will learn choreography from PBT dancers Amanda Cochrane, Julia Erickson, William Moore, Yoshiaki Nakano and Cooper Verona. The pieces the dancers will learn are all part of “Millennial Movement,” a collection of new works created by the five PBT dancers, which will be performed May 5 at 7 p.m. and May 6 at 2:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Seton Hill University Performing Arts Center. Tickets for these performances can be purchased at setonhill.edu/tickets.
Later in the spring semester, PBT artists will come to the Seton Hill campus to teach master classes to both Seton Hill dancers and youth dancers from throughout the community.
