When 12-year-old Leilani Hines wanted to fly away to Neverland, she just had to close her eyes, point her toes, curve one arm above her head, and picture herself springing above the ground in the ballet move known as a grand jete. In her imagination, Leilani soared to that magical land above the floodwaters that destroyed the Morton Street Dance Center on April 30. It was a refuge from her worries that costumes, which had to be ordered 12 weeks in advance, were mud-splattered and ruined.

Not long after they began living their dream of owning a dance studio in their new hometown of Columbia 25 years ago, two sisters from Michigan watched that dream go up in flames - the seven-alarm kind. Six years before tragedy struck, Diane Andrews and Mary Harper had decided to combine their artistic and entrepreneurial skills and become studio owners and artistic directors. Ready to take that leap of faith in June 1987, they rented a space and hustled to spread the word. “No one knew who we were,” recalls Harper, who had followed her older sister from Michigan, where they had cultivated reputations as performers and teachers.

As Josh Groban's "So She Dances" played, Vickie Bath and her dance instructor, Gabe Gamboa, swirled across the wood floor, sometimes forward, sometimes backward, every step silken-smooth. Bath kicked one blue-jeans-clad leg high in the air, then stopped and watched Gamboa demonstrate a step. "One, two three. One, two, cross. I know," she said, and the two whirled off again. Bath, 56, has been an Arthur Murray pupil with Gamboa for about seven years, she said. Until recently, the Clarksville resident traveled to Silver Spring for instruction.

The music swelled, the big ballroom - lined on one side by a mirror - looked beautiful, and my 16-year-old daughter and I were waltzing. She led; I followed. We'd come to the Towson Dance Studio to take a lesson in ballroom and see just what it might take to learn some of the basics of social dancing. In just one class, we learned steps for the waltz, swing and fox trot. We took a group lesson with two other couples, and, sure, at first it was a little awkward. We went to the left a time or two when we should have gone right, but we caught on pretty quickly.

I remember back in the day when conversations about sex were whispered and babies were born by immaculate conception. All three of my children were. Just ask my mother. But actually I was a lucky ducky, and when I asked her where babies came from, she didn't give me the hooey other mothers in the neighborhood gave their kids. She sat me down and drew a diagram of a male organ, female uterus and birth canal. I was 7. I just wanted to know if what Sylvia, who was 8, had told me was true.
