PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Ballet Theater says it’s two-thirds of the way toward raising $20 million to expand a school for aspiring dancers and, hopefully, help sustain the arts group for decades.

The ballet plans to break ground on a 14,000-square-foot annex to create what’s called the Byham House - a residence for high-school age ballet students from out of town.

The facility will include two dance studios, a fitness area, changing rooms and study areas.

Ballet officials hope the expansion attracts 40 percent more students in the next three years.

The ballet just celebrated the end of its 45th season.
