EVEN THOUGH Dianne Rosso-Freeman attended college on a teaching grant, she says she never thought she would have a career in education. She planned to teach for two years after graduation - a grant requirement - and move on to another profession. It didn't play out that way for Rosso-Freeman. In her 29th year of teaching at Glen Burnie High School, she says she would never want to teach anywhere else. The Anne Arundel County native finds herself in a win-win situation at the school. "I get to teach a wonderful group of students a subject that I love," she says.

"And now they are talented dancers," she says.Some of them study as much as eight hours a week.

It took the irresistible rhythm of the "Cha-Cha Slide" to flood the dance floor at La Fontaine Bleu in East Baltimore. Slinky in shimmery, revealing gowns and impossibly high heels, some 50 party girls hopped to the left, hopped to the right, momentarily released from the challenges of young, disadvantaged motherhood. For one enchanted evening, there were no dirty diapers, housing concerns, money worries, family strife. Instead, it was a night to take part in a ritual that millions of high school students enjoy every spring.
