Eva Anderson watches her own image appear on the television monitor in the kitchen of her Columbia home - the powerful energy of the dance caught in her figure straining under a taut cloth, like a swan snared in a net. "I like cloth," she says. "I like Spandex especially because it can do things. It can dance almost by itself, if you manipulate it right." Anderson is previewing the documentary Chronicles of a Dancer: How We Became Artists, a video retrospective of the 32 seasons of the Eva Anderson Dancers, which will premiere today at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Anderson, who has always been a creative, inventive choreographer, has been a wizard at keeping a professional dance company afloat for three decades in Maryland.

Eva Anderson's Baltimore Dance Theatre gave its all Saturday night at Howard Community College. Despite the small audience, the seven-member troupe, plus two former company members, deftly performed Ms. Anderson's five distinct and stylistically differing works.From the stark modernism of "Chess Game," to the African-influenced movements in "Ceremony," the comedic pantomime of "Br'er Rabbit" and the ballet-inspired figures of the opening work, "Debutante Slouch," Ms. Anderson's versatile company was technically comfortable in a variety of styles.

Skill and creativity have helped Eva Anderson Dancers Ltd. grow into a well-known and respected modern dance group in the Baltimore-Washington region. But supporters say persistence has been just as important, as the company begins its 30th season. "I just kept doing it," said Anderson, a Columbia choreographer who has been the creative and administrative force behind the company for three decades. "It seems like artists that are successful are those that didn't quit." The Eva Anderson Dancers - the oldest professional modern dance company in Maryland - will celebrate its milestone with performances at Baltimore Museum of Art on Saturday and Sunday.

The music is throbbing, and Eva Anderson is hard at work. While a group of dancers glides to Latin rhythms across a rehearsal room floor at the Howard County Center for the Arts, Anderson watches intently for any missed beat or flubbed step. "One-two-three-four, five-six-seven-eight," Anderson murmurs to herself as she taps one tennis shoe-clad foot. "Yes, yes, that's it." For more than 25 years, Anderson has commanded the Eva Anderson Dancers Ltd., a company that has become almost synonymous with African American dance in the region.
