Linthicum teen, 15, in ballet competition Dance: Adrienne Caterna was chosen to compete internationally with 102 other dancers in Jackson, Miss.


A dance student from Linthicum is among 103 dancers who will participate in the 1998 International Ballet Competition, to be held June 13-28 in Jackson, Miss.

Adrienne Canterna, 15, was selected by a videotape audition process from among 250 applicants. She is the older of two sisters who often perform as a team. She and Ashley, 13, study at the Edna Lee School of Dance in Glen Burnie and are privately coached by J. Anibal Macedo, a former member of Ballet Theater Annapolis.

The Kirov Academy of Ballet in Washington will send six students to the competition. Among them are Maria Bystrova and Brian Maloney, whose bluegrass duet was the highlight of a Kirov Academy showcase last fall at the University of Maryland, College Park.

The ballet competition is held triennially in Jackson, Moscow and Varna, Bulgaria.

Dennis Price, incoming chairman of the dance department at Towson University, and Judi Fey, who teaches dance at South River High School in Edgewater, are recipients of the annual award for outstanding service to dance in the state by the Maryland Council for Dance.

Kelly Isaac, 18, of Annapolis, will join the New York company of the tap musical "Bring in da Noise, Bring in da Funk" next week.

Isaac, completing his freshman year at the University of Maryland, College Park, studies with Mary Slater of Edgewater.
