Exercise program arrives just in time for spring

SPRING is upon us, bringing Opening Day fever, sprucing-up chores in the yard and the sight of dimpled, droopy body parts that haven't seen the light of day since September.

But it's not too late to start that long-delayed exercise plan.

Sweatpants and Dance, a low-impact exercise program for the nonspandex crowd that is sponsored by the county Department of Recreation and Parks, meets from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and Wednesday evenings at George Fox Middle School.

George Kelch, program leader, said the self-directed dance activity attracts men and women.

The program is based on familiar dance steps such as the polka, cha-cha, electric slide, foxtrot "and as many others as we can fit ++ into our hour time frame," he said.

The next session is from April 1 through May 27th.

The cost is $15, due on the first night of class.

Information: 410-437-8889.

Coffeehouse to premiere

Pasadena United Methodist Church, 61 Ritchie Highway, is having its first coffeehouse from 7: 30 p.m. to 9: 30 p.m. March 29, featuring the music of Otis Stroup and Friends.

"Mr. Stroup performs secular and religious music in the area and is familiar to many people," said Sara Titus, church spokeswoman.

Tickets are $6. Refreshments will be provided, and baked items will be sold. Child care will be available.

All proceeds from the coffeehouse and bake sale will go to the Arundel House of Hope, a multidenominational project to help homeless men in northern Anne Arundel County build productive lives.

Information: 410-647-3090.

Governor invited

Gov. Parris N. Glendening will be the speaker at the Pasadena Business Association's meeting at noon April 1 at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie.

The cost is $10 with reservations, which must be made by March 27, and $15 without.

Information: 410-987-4887.

'Guys and Dolls' opening

Broadway arrives at Chesapeake High School this weekend in the form of a production of "Guys and Dolls" by theater and vocal music students.

The show opens tonight and continues tomorrow and March 26-28 in the school auditorium.

Curtain time is 7 p.m. for all performances. Admission is $7 for adults, $5 for students and seniors.

School choir recognized

Congratulations to Chesapeake High School's Concert Choir for being the first high school chorus invited to perform at the Kennedy Center's new Millennium Stage in Washington.

The 58-member choir, under the direction of teacher Karen Smith-Rhodes, performed a medley of five ethnic tunes there two weeks ago.
