``An Evening at the Ballet'' features local sisters


June 30, 1996|By Rosalie Falter | Rosalie Falter,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

IF YOU ENJOY classical ballet and contemporary masterpieces, you have the opportunity to attend a special performance featuring Adrienne and Ashley Canterna, local young ballerinas.

Ballet Master J. Anibal Macedo will present "Encore! (An Evening at the Ballet)" featuring the two sisters at 7 p.m. Friday in the Pascal Center for Performing Arts at Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold.

Macedo will dance with Adrienne for three pieces and with Ashley for one piece. Both girls will perform solos.

After three years of training with Macedo, Ashley and Adrienne have won the regional titles of Petite and Junior Miss Dance Masters of America. They will represent Maryland, Washington, Virginia and West Virginia at the Dance Masters of America National Title Competition in New York City in July. Friday's performance will be a fund-raiser to pay for their trip.

"Encore!" will include two other solo dancers: Oscar Hawkins, a 22-year-old from Waldorf who attended the Kirov Ballet Academy in Washington, and 15-year-old Jodi Adkins, a promising young dancer from Gambrills.

Adrienne and Ashley have also been asked to dance in the July Fourth celebration of the Jazz World Congress dance convention at the Kennedy Center in Washington.

The sisters live in Linthicum with their parents, Sally and John Canterna, and two brothers, Andy and Tony.

Tickets for "Encore!" are $10 and can be purchased at the Edna Lee Dance Studio in Burwood Plaza, or by calling 242-4442.
