Voloshky, the celebrated Ukrainian folk dance ensemble, will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday at North County High School. The concert is sponsored by the Performing Arts Association of Linthicum.

The dance company, directed by Andrei Pap, has a repertoire of dances from every Ukrainian region.

Voloshky has traveled northeastern United States and Canada since 1972, promoting Ukrainian dance and tradition and cultivating an interest in Ukrainian culture.

The ensemble has developed 40 dancers who perform everything from vibrant, acrobatic dances to fluid, stylized romantic pieces.

There is still time to subscribe and see the four remaining season concerts, all for only $20. PAAL concerts are handicapped accessible, and parking is free and well-lighted. Assistance for the hearing impaired is available. For more information, call Eloise Vaughan at 859-8047 or Jerry Van Airsdale at 636-2579.

PAAL concerts are partially underwritten by the Anne Arundel County Commission on Culture and the Arts and the Maryland State Arts Council.

Children at Linthicum Elementary School recently received a visit from Henry Lide, an assistant on the television show, "Mr. Wizard's World." He presented a scientific program using student volunteers.

The following students performed projects using common items found in the supermarket: Jessica Arrington, Caitlin Burns, Dominic Butera, Mary Butera, Adam Callahan, Jamie Henderson, Marc Holstein, Andrew Kane, Mary Notari, April Parker, Lisa Savard, Dana Shakiba, Kevin Watkins and Amanda Weatherley.

Lide told the students that experiments can be performed with any common supermarket item, but stressed that safety precautions should always be observed. He told the students that "science is not just memorizing facts from a textbook but a way of thinking, learning and exploring."

Student representatives Erin Death and Dan Taylor thanked Lide for his informative program.

The program was sponsored by the Linthicum Elementary PTA.
