About this event

The Pittsburgh Youth Chorus & Hill Dance Academy Theatre are thrilled to co-present the youth premiere of CROSSINGS, a coming-of-age story - told through dance, vocal music, and spoken word - of a young Black woman growing up “Uptown” and confronting racism in her community.

The Pittsburgh Youth Chorus & Hill Dance Academy Theatre are thrilled to co-present the youth premiere of CROSSINGS, a choral ballet celebrating its 30th Anniversary. CROSSINGS was written by composer and performer Ysaÿe Barnwell and choreographer, writer, and filmmaker David Roussève. The performance will feature Pittsburgh-based vocal artist Anita Levels as the spoken word and vocal soloist.

CROSSINGS is a coming-of-age story – told through dance, vocal music, and spoken word – of a young Black woman growing up “Uptown” and confronting racism in her community. It is a story of empowerment, highlighting the value of inner strength and the importance of cultivating beauty in the way we see ourselves and our community.

Tickets are pay-what-you-can, but advanced registration is required. PYC’s 2021-2022 COVID-19 Special Event Policy will be in place for the event.

Thank you to the Opportunity Fund for supporting this performance.
