Call it love at first sashay.

When the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, in its first international tour in almost two decades, landed in Israel last week for a tour of the country, few could have suspected that the performances would have such an impact on not only the Israeli audiences, but the dancers themselves.

In first international tour in years, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre to dance in Israel

Dancers with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre headed back to the studio a bit sooner this summer to prepare for a pre-season performance, but it won't take place at the Benedum, Byham or any of the troupe's other regular venues.

This week, the company will present a mixed repertoire program in Israel at the 25th annual Karmiel Dance Festival, which will feature about 5,000 dancers from across the world. The trip will mark the first time PBT has toured overseas in nearly 20 years.

"We're very excited about it," artistic director Terrence Orr said.
