Arlington Parks and Recreation
And Performing Arts

Bicycle Paths
Arlington has a number of paved off-road bicycle trails, all of which travel along the Potomac River and its tributaries, abandoned railroad beds, or major highways. One of these trails, the Mount Vernon Trail, runs for 17 miles along the Potomac, continuing through Alexandria to George Washington's plantation home. In Arlington's southeast corner, immediately south of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, the Mount Vernon Trail connects to the Four Mile Run Trail, which travels westward through Arlington in a stream valley. In addition, a rail trail, the Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Trail (W&OD Trail), travels northwest for 45 miles from the Arlington/Alexandria boundary at Shirlington through Falls Church, Vienna, Herndon, and Leesburg to the town of Purcellville in western Loudoun County, Virginia. Other notable trails include both the Custis Trail, which travels westward beside Interstate 66 through Arlington, connecting the Mount Vernon Trail in Rosslyn with the W&OD Trail, and the Bluemont Junction Trail, a rail trail that travels between the W&OD Trail and Ballston, where it connects with the Custis Trail. In addition, a partially off-road bike route bisects the County while traveling westward from Arlington National Cemetery, the Iwo Jima Memorial and Rosslyn to Falls Church while traveling as a paved trail near or adjacent to Arlington Boulevard (U.S. Route 50) or within the Boulevard's service road. Further, many of the County's major streets contain designated bicycle lanes near their curbs or parking lanes.

Iwo Jima Memorial
The Tomb of the Unknowns, also known as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, stands atop a hill overlooking Washington, DC. Kennedy is buried in Arlington National Cemetery with his wife and some of their children. His grave is marked with an "Eternal Flame." His brother Senator Robert F. Kennedy is also buried nearby. Another President, William Howard Taft, who was also a Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, is the only other President buried at Arlington. Other frequently visited sites near the cemetery are the USMC War Memorial, commonly known as the "Iwo Jima Memorial" and the Netherlands Carillon.

PERFORMING ARTS

Subtext, our quarterly newsletter, contains historical, critical, and analytical features about each production (e-mail us for free subscription); Audience Guides are prepared for each production; post-show discussions are held for selected productions with directors, designers and actors. Because The American Century Theater strives to create theatrical experiences that entire families can watch, enjoy and discuss long afterward, and because we believe that theater should be available to the entire commuity, maintaining affordable ticket prices is a major objective.

TACT is also the area's only professional theater that admits all children free of charge with a paying adult.

Classika Theatre
www.classika.org
(703) 824-6200
Classika Theatre has teamed up with NASA to produce “Galactika,” a one-act play that uses movement, sound and, yes, sometimes even Three Stooges-like comedy to make points about astronomy.The result is a show that works both for young kids and their parents, a less-than-one-hour effort that offers some effective lessons with the entertainment.As the show opened, I worried for a while that it would be a kid-sized version of what Classika (or, more appropriately, its sister troupe, Synetic Theatre) has become known for: ethereal combinations of dance, pantomine, lighting effects and more.While that works for adult shows, it probably wouldn't carry a production aimed at the under-10 crowd. But not to worry. The energetic, four-member cast quickly breaks into humorous stories that complement all the motion on stage. Did you know that the sun occasionally “burps”? That's a pretty low-brow way of explaining solar flares, but it works well for both the younger crowd and those of us who really enjoyed, but didn't do so well, in a mandatory astronomy class in college (color me guilty).

The Synetic Theater
"The Synetic Theater traffics in rapturously surrealist stagecraft."
Bob Mondello. Synetic Theater seeks to advance and enrich the theater arts through presentation and education in its unique performance style of a synthesis of the arts, fusing the classical elements of drama, movement, dance, mime, and music into a distinct form of non-realistic theater. As Synetic Theater begins to develop a bridge between the DC and New York theater scenes, the company also seeks to expand its international presence. The theatrical style of Synetic Theater lends itself beautifully to cross-cultural performances, and the company plans to share their work and vision with people from around the world. Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili, artistic director and resident choreographer, respectively, have garnered international, critical, and audience acclaim for their award-winning productions. Mr. Tsikurishvili has received six Helen-Hayes-Award nominations and two awards (Best Director and Best Resident Play for Hamlet…the Rest is Silence). Mrs. Tsikurishvili has received seven nominations for Best Choreography and won the award three times (The Idiot, Faust, and Hamlet…the rest is silence).“Art with a capital A” – The New York Times

American Balalaika Symphony
3811 N. 14th St.
Arlington, VA 22201
The American Balalaika Symphony is a symphony orchestra based in the Washington, DC metropolitan area that performs music ranging from folk to symphonic.
We are a full symphony orchestra in which the customary bowed stringed instruments - violins, violas, cellos, and basses - are replaced by a variety of plucked equivalents from the balalaika and domra families. Sustained “string” tone is produced by frequent use of rapid tremolo playing, which gives the balalaika orchestra one of its most distinctive sounds. The wind and percussion sections of the ensemble are no different from those of a conventional symphony, and there are some unusual instruments, including bayan (Russian button accordion), gusli (Russian table harp), and cimbalom. Our repertoire includes both traditional and Soviet-era music for balalaika orchestra and special arrangements of carefully-chosen classical works. The sound is distinctive but familiarly symphonic.The American Balalaika Symphony was founded in 2001 by conductor and artistic director Peter Trofimenko. The group consists of an internationally diverse mixture of professional and amateur musicians in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
The ABS is seeking musicians to play with our group. We also welcome those who are interested in contributing to the orchestra in non-musical ways. Please visit our "join" page to find out more and then contact us by phone or email.

Firebelly Productions
Theatre on the Run
3700 South Four Mile Run
From its inception in May, 2002, Firebelly Productions has focused on the talents of young artists. Artistic director Kathi Gollwitzer has successfully trained actors for stage, auditions, and performance-based productions. Her teaching method, which is based on the method created by Stanislavski, creates confident and honest performances with disciplined actors. They are trained in scene study and monologue work using techniques such as sense memory exercises, improvisation, and action / motivation / object method. Firebelly was the direct result of a collaboration between Kathi Gollwitzer and producer, Barbara Walthall. The two first joined forces on Postmortem, during Kathi's 6-year tenure at Bishop O'Connell High School in Arlington, Virginia. While there, she challenged her students to rise above the "just another school play" standard to "professional quality productions." Her work on productions like My Fair Lady, West Side Story, An Ideal Husband, and Singin' in the Rain attracted the attention of locals who became loyal followers and resulted in sold out houses. Sharing a commitment to the training of serious students, Kathi and Barbara founded Firebelly as an opportunity for students to work alongside a group of talented, dedicated, and creative individuals. Drawing from a variety of experiences in many areas of theatre, they provide guidance, support, and expertise. Firebelly Productions is supported by Arlington County through the Arlington Commission for the ARTS and the Cultural Affairs Division of the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Resources.
