In 2000, the British film "Billy Elliot" generated a flurry of admiration on both sides of the Atlantic. Something about this story of an 11-year-old boy, who decides to study ballet even as it makes him a major oddity in his northern England mining town, touched a nerve. Five years later, transformed into a musical with a score by Elton John, "Billy Elliot" became a runaway hit in London's West End. It went on to win a slew of Tony Awards, including Best Musical, after its 2008 Broadway premiere.

Glen Burnie High School showcases its students' interests each semester with "An Evening of Dance." Tickets to the school's semiannual event often sell out. Saturday's affair will consist of 33 performances, many featuring some of the more than 250 students who are either enrolled in dance classes or members of the two after-school dance clubs. With 18 different sections, Glen Burnie has the state's largest dance program at a public high school. Much of the enthusiasm derives from the "Dance for the Athlete" class, which helps boys and girls develop coordination and agility for sports such as lacrosse, football and basketball.

Most of Lutherville resident Brooke Kuhl-McClelland's day is spent in a dance studio in Howard County. When this veteran dance teacher's students give a public performance, she prefers to be off to the side - watching as her students bask in the applause. But last month the spotlight and applause were for this teacher, who instructs dance students at Hammond High School. Kuhl-McClelland's career earned her one of the four Howie Awards, handed out at the 15th annual "Celebration of the Arts in Howard County" on March 24 in the Peter and Elizabeth Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center at Howard Community College.

One of the first things that needed changing was the hard floor. Jillian Barber could scarcely believe that she'd been hired to launch Annapolis High School's dance program in a room that clearly was not suited for dance. So she started from the bottom: first the floor, then other equipment and additional mirrors on all four walls. And still only six students showed up to try out for the school's first after-school dance company nine years ago. "Only three had any idea of what they were showing up for," said Barber.

Director Kendra Smith received a call last April from a national tour organization for school performers telling her that someone had anonymously nominated her troupe to perform at a college football bowl game. "You know you're calling Annapolis Middle School, right?" Smith asked, knowing that such honors are usually reserved for high school programs. But she was assured that the caller had indeed specified her group and its performance at the Anne Arundel County Public School Dance Festival in February.
