The Connecticut Dance School will stage the premier performance of "Seven with Three" on Friday, March 23, at 7 p.m. at the Westport Country Playhouse to benefit its Bridgeport outreach and scholarship program. The performance by the Fairfield troupe, comprised of intermediate and advanced students, will be the first of choreographer Alan Woodard's new ballet, with original music by composer John Rose of Norwalk, according to a school release. The program also will include works by Moira Murphy Wright and Valerie Pullman, both school faculty and choreographers.

The hourlong performance will be followed by a reception, silent auction and entertainment.

To order tickets, $10 for students and $40 for adults, call the school at 203-384-2492; they will also be available at the door.
