As far as dancers go, Justin Colona is on the beefy side. He has to be. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound Glen Burnie High School senior is also a linebacker for the football team. But tonight, at an "Evening of Dance" in the school's auditorium, he will lose the pads and the cleats - and maybe a few pounds - as he shows off his spins and dips for a crowd full of friends and teammates. "The first time I did it, I was nervous. It was scary," says Colona, who keeps his head shaved and ears pierced.

No heavy-duty bonus to sign. Not even enough money to buy a secondhand car or promises of a partially paid college education. Merely an opportunity. That's what Tony Saunders wanted if only a long-shot chance to prove his ability.He believed in himself if others didn't. To be placed in the ever-demanding arena of baseball was all he asked. And then to see what would happen -- the painful lot that befell him -- after he earned his way to the major leagues as a gifted left-handed pitcher of unlimited promise, became a shock of sudden despair.

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.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The coat and tie Tony Saunders wears are a practical disguise. They have a snug, professional fit on a man who, at 29, is trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life. Selling stocks, bonds and mutual funds hardly gives you the same adrenaline buzz as throwing a baseball 95 mph for a strike, with 20,000 fans screaming their approval. That was another life, another time. Saunders, a standout at Glen Burnie High School in the early 1990s, tries hard not to look back, though it's impossible not to feel an occasional emotional twitch.
