Spanish dance

With rhythm and groove, Spanish music and dance reel with energy and set feet a-tapping. As part of the Performing Arts Series for Children at Howard Community College, Ziva's Spanish Dance Ensemble presents an exotic and colorful dance designed for children and families. Along with musicians and singers, the ensemble offers regional dances of Aragon and Cataluna and the fiery flamenco of Andalucia.

The performance takes place Sunday at 2 p.m. and 3: 30 p.m. at Smith Theatre, Howard Community College, 10901 Little TTC Patuxent Parkway in Columbia. Tickets are $6 for adults and children. Call 410-715-0034 or 301-596-6203.

Did you remember to brush? Your pet's teeth, that is. Learn the right way to care for dogs' and cats' teeth at the program "Jaws, Claws and Paws" at the National Museum of Dentistry Sunday. A demonstration with Dr. Ira Luskin and Scupper, a black Labrador with a great smile and pearly whites, will show how easy it can be to care for pets' teeth and gums using toothbrushes and toothpastes designed for animals. Children can sink their teeth into a craft workshop and create their own dinosaur or shark tooth.

The program takes place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the National Museum of Dentistry, 31 S. Greene St. The program is free with museum admission of $4.50 for adults; $2.50 for children and free for ages 6 and under. Reservations requested. Call 410-706-0052.
