The theater, on the roof level of the venue, has long featured contemporary dance, ballet, chamber music, theater and family performances, including many Japanese arts shows. This year, the Kennedy Center's theaters and stages will showcase the "Arts of Japan Celebration," an ode to the close relations between the United States and Japan.

When she was first asked to reconstruct the dance performance "How Long, Brethren?" Dianne McIntyre had some serious sleuthing to do. Little evidence remained of choreographer Helen Tamiris' powerful depiction of African-American life created for the WPA Federal Theatre Project in 1937. But McIntyre, an internationally acclaimed choreographer herself, was well suited to the assignment from George Mason University, home of the Project's archives. There, in 1991, "How Long, Brethren?" was staged for the first time since its debut.

The thumping beat beckons the dancers to the floor of the Hurt Gymnasium at Morgan State University. On command from Iantha L. Tucker, artistic director and principal choreographer of the university's Modern Dance Ensemble for the past 27 years, arms, legs and hips sway to the jazzy New Orleans-style music. "OK, here we go. Dance, people. Smile," Tucker says, kneeling in front of the 12 dancers, watching their every rehearsal move. Since 1976, Tucker -- a dance historian and associate professor in the health, physical education and recreation department -- has led the school's modern-dance company, drawing the respect and the admiration of students and colleagues.

Step into the urban garden on Woodland Avenue late on a Tuesday afternoon and you'd soon forget that you were in the midst of one of the city's most notorious open air drug markets.Close your eyes to the deteriorating row houses across the street and you'd think you were in Ghana, with greenery, fresh air, syncopated drums and high-stepping young dancers. For a precious few moments, drug dealers stop dealing. Or they move from the garden.On one warm afternoon, a 13-year-old girl leads a dozen younger girls as the New World Dance Ensemble works toward its mission: bringing art to life in this sliver of Park Heights that has had more than its share of misery.
