Dancing, cross-country skiing offered for winter warm-ups


January 06, 1994|By JONI GUHNE

It's the first Thursday of 1994. My new calendar has been hung in the kitchen with care. My 6-day-old resolutions are still in working order. And my tree and ornaments are clearly marked and packed away (just kidding).

The beginning of the year is a time for action, and the Chesapeake Dance Theatre and the Central County chapter of the American Red Cross have combined forces to stoke your fire to get through the long winter months ahead.

Tomorrow night the stage at Severna Park High School will be turned over to children and the child in you for two performances of "It's Your Turn on Stage."

And when the audience isn't dancing, members of the Creative Dance Institute will perform.

The shows are at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

Children's tickets are $2; adults' $4.

Information: 647-5954 or 798-5324.


For some really serious activity, Anne Arundel Community College has the solution: three sessions of cross-country skiing.

The sessions are Jan. 25, 28-30; Feb. 8, 11-13; and Feb. 22, 25-27. Participants will study technique on the Arnold campus during the Tuesday evening sessions and then car pool to Deep Creek Lake on Friday night. There will be more lessons during the Saturday morning sessions followed by skiing Saturday afternoon and Sunday.

Tuition and registration are $70. Lodging, food and equipment are $60.

Information: 541-2325.


If you'd rather be entertained sitting down, attend the Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra winter concert at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 22 in St. John's College Key Auditorium.

Conducted by Arne Running, the concert will feature winners of the November piano concerto competition: Sara Jones, a senior at Easton High School in Talbot County; Erin Wagner, a junior at Northern High School in Calvert County; and Erika Knepp, a student at South River High School.

Tickets are $8 for adults; $5 for students.

Send a self-addressed, stamped envelope with ticket requests and a check made payable to "CYSO" to P.O. Box 863, Arnold 21012, or call 647-8474.


To exercise fingers and heart, Hospice of the Chesapeake is sponsoring a series of quilting bees from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesdays, Jan. 12, Feb. 9 and March 9.

These free bees provide AIDS survivors with emotional support and a place to work on their AIDS Memorial Quilt panels.

Information: 987-2003.


Child care providers can learn how to use Sesame Street to stimulate learning in their young charges during a workshop sponsored by the Anne Arundel County Public Library and Maryland Public Television.

The workshop is 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 22 at the Severna Park branch library.

Trainers from MPT's Sesame Street Preschool Education Program will be on hand.

The fee is $10. Pre-registration is a must. Call 222-7371.
