HAGERSTOWN - Rain poured down during a recent practice, but a group of about 20 children bounced into headstands, freestyle dance and back flips in the courtyard of North Springs apartments as a Caribbean, reggae, hip-hop music mix blared from a portable compact disc player. It's the last HoodHop practice before the neighborhood dance-off, and they have to practice their routine 20 times, said Anna Shetler, their dance instructor. About 80 local children have been practicing their dance moves for seven weeks this summer, leading up to a final dance competition on Saturday.

HAGERSTOWN - Tre Lewis used to think dance was short on variety and big on boredom. Then, he discovered hip-hop. "There's nothing like it," he said. "You can really move and have fun. And I think I'm pretty good at it. " Lewis had a chance to show off his talents Saturday afternoon when he participated in HoodHop, a dance-off at Doub's Woods Park.

When local celebrities Heather Guessford, Clayton Wilcox and Joe Ross signed up for Dancing with the Arc Stars, they probably weren't quite prepared for the amount of dedication needed. Since June, they've been shuffling-ball-changing their way through weekly rehearsals. Their routine also has translated into tired feet, aching bodies and, in Guessford's case, bruising. But when the trio take the stage with their professional dancing partners Saturday, Oct. 6, at Hager Hall Conference & Event Center, pain will be the least of their worries.

HAGERSTOWN --For four years, Anna Shetler has taught children in the "hot spot" neighborhoods of Hagerstown how to dance. On summer days, they practice hip hop, breakdancing, jazz and more exotic international dances in local parking lots and parks. "It's the easiest to get in trouble in those neighborhoods, because there isn't anything going on," Shetler said. So, once a week in the summer, Shetler, 22, teaches dance to youths ages 4 to 17 through a free program she calls HoodHop.
