Onica Barnes, 11, discovered the grace of classical ballet and the rhythm of jazz dance at the Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre's summer camp. But that was only a small part of what Onica learned. She learned more about herself.Onica, of West Baltimore, said she gained discipline and self-esteem at the camp, which is housed at Morgan State University."The camp doesn't just concentrate on dance, but on discipline," Onica said. "It lets me know that I can do anything I want to do. It helps me discover myself."

Jacoby Jones and Karina get the first jazz dance of the season. He says, "I wasn't nervous in the Super Bowl, do you think I'd get nervous for this?" and Karina gives him a shove. She's too smart to pull his finger during rehearsal but he cuts one without help. Karina brings in some friends, a troupe of tiny girls, and yes, Jacoby in their midst is as cute as you'd think. They taunt him mercilessly. They start with Karina on Jacoby's shoulders, under a very tall trenchcoat, in sepiascope.

Before the music started, they could have been anybody - just another group of mostly teen-age girls chattering about their lives, adjusting their hair, sizing up Britney, stretching. But then someone pushed play on the mini-boombox, and the crew of 10 became stars, no longer subject to the rules of gravity. As War's funky "Slippin' Into Darkness" filled the rehearsal room, they leapt, twirled and flew through the air, fluidly becoming one body with seemingly superb control of its 40 limbs.

Ballet Theatre of Maryland artistic director Dianna Cuatto proved last weekend that it is possible to offer an eclectic program with something for everyone that contains enough substance to satisfy the most demanding balletomane. Cuatto presented the neoclassicism of a "Grande Tarantella," its classic elements punctuated by dancers' rhythmic tambourine playing to enliven this high-spirited Italian dance. This was followed by the Celtic "Dawn Songs," which fused classic dance with aspects of Riverdance, where rhythmic clapping by the audience was encouraged.
