Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre brings on five new dancers.
Three of the new hires -- Masahiro Haneji, Michaela King and Marisa Grywalski -- come from the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School’s graduate program. Lucius Kirst and Jake Unger hail from Ballet San Jose and Houston Ballet II, respectively.
Mr. Haneji is a native of Japan who trained with the Houston Ballet Academy and Houston Ballet II before coming to the PBT School. He’s competed in a number of international ballet competitions, recently earning a bronze in the World Ballet Competition’s pas de deux category.
