“I would stack them up to any ballet in the country,” said Suzanne Kendig, who was joined by her husband, Thomas, for the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's annual Ballet Under the Stars on Aug. 17 at Hartwood Acres.

VIPs, including Betsy Teti and her daughter, Julia, Dan and Donna Hotopp, Dr. Helene Finegold and her daughters, Rosie and Elsa Blodgett, Becky and Herb Torbin, Dr. Larry Leahy and John Vandegrift, and Steve and Peggy McKnight, enjoyed a summer barbecue while blankets and chairs were used to stake a claim on the lawn.

Unable to quell their excitement any longer, a troupe of tiny dancers began their own impromptu performance — one that undoubtedly reassured artistic director Terrence Orr and executive director Harris Ferris that the next generation of ballerinas had arrived.
