Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre will be taking its artistry overseas in August when it performs in Israel at the Karmiel Dance Festival.

The performance will mark the first time PBT has toured internationally in several years. Dancers will present Dwight Rhoden's "Step Touch," an energetic production choreographed to doo-wop-era songs.

Now in its 25th year, the Karmiel Dance Festival showcases more than 5,000 dancers from Israel and across the world and attracts about 300,000 guests. Israel's Karmiel and Misgav region are Pittsburgh's sister communities through the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh's Parternship2Gether program, which bridges Israel with other global Jewish communities.

PBT will announce the tour April 26 when the company performs "Step Touch" at the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh's JFest. Learn more at www.jfestpgh.org and www.pbt.org.
