Tri-State-area residents will have ample opportunity to enjoy ballet this weekend as four local dance companies will have recitals.

Potomac Classical Youth Ballet Company is celebrating its 10th anniversary Saturday night with students performing five pieces from the company's 10-year repertoire, including modern ballets to music by Yanni and one to Aaron Copland's "Rodeo: Hoedown," known as the song from the beef commercials, said Julie Schimmel, the company's treasurer.

An original ballet choreographed by the company's artistic director, Lauran Clowser, for the anniversary will be performed.

City Ballet School's recital, also Saturday at The Maryland Theatre, will feature about 170 students performing classical ballet, modern, jazz or tap, Artistic Director Danielle Horochowski said.

The recital includes a hip-hop dance with basketballs to jazz music and a jazz dance with music and costumes like those from the movie "The Matrix."

Three guest artists who have danced with the Louisville Ballet in Kentucky, including Chambersburg Ballet alumnus Christopher McCauley, will join the students on the stage.

"Fantasy from Sleeping Beauty," "Reverie," and "Variations from Giselle, Act 2" are among the ballets to be performed.
