Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre closed Wednesday on the acquisition of property next to its Strip District headquarters, where it will expand studio space and parking.

The ballet's board authorized $850,000 for the purchase.

The acquisition is the third phase of the ballet's $10.7 million school campaign to support growing enrollment in the children's, student, pre-professional and adult divisions, and attendance at patron and community involvement events.

In the first phase, the ballet opened a residence in Lawrenceville for out-of-town students. The second phase expanded the reception area at its headquarters.

The final phase will be constructing an annex building with studio space to accommodate a 60 percent increase in enrollment, from 832 to more than 1,300 students annually.
