Pittsburgh, Nov. 12, 2007 — The La Roche College Dance Department will host its annual Winter Rep series at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, and Saturday, Dec. 8, at the Zappala College Center on the main college campus, 9000 Babcock Boulevard.

The Winter Rep performance features several numbers, including:

• Artistic Director Gerard Holt will present “Degas,” an original piece in which he works with the student dancers to capture the look and style of French impressionist painter Edgar Degas, whose famous works feature many ballet students. Accompanying music is from the motion picture soundtrack “Pride and Prejudice.”

• Ballet Mistress Lana Novodran will be restaging several student numbers that focus on excerpts from “Sleeping Beauty” and “La Bayadere.” The latter is a classical ballet that was originally performed around 1846. It is a four-act ballet, and the La Roche dancers will be doing excerpts from the most popular section – the third act – called “Kingdom of Shades.”

• Modern and jazz dance numbers also will be part of the faculty-choreographed numbers from Gina Desko and Miriam Scigliano.

Parking is free. General admission tickets at the door are $10, senior citizen tickets are $5, and students are $1 with valid student ID. For additional ticket information or to purchase tickets, call 412-536-1214 or 724-538-5856.
