Cafe Asia, the latest restaurant to open in the Power Plant Live! complex, is now also a nightclub. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays around 10:30 p.m. the dinner lights go down, the laser lights come on and the tables are pushed back to make room for dancing. (Don't worry; if your table is on the dance floor and you're still chowing down on pad thai at 10:30, you won't be tipped out of your chair.) Perched high above the smooth wooden dance floor is a pagoda-style booth where local DJs spin progressive, house and Latin beats.

Baltimore's Centro de la Comunidad celebrated its fifth anniversary with a Fiesta Latina, a shindig with salsa (both at dinner and on the dance floor) at Lista's restaurant in Fells Point.The evening began with a mariachi band and margaritas. No, that wasn't a conga line snaking onto the back balcony. It was just folks waiting for their chance at the burritos, black beans and rice.Among those enjoying this evening were Haydee Rodriguez, Centro's executive director; Dr. Magaly Rodriguez de Bittner, chair of Centro's board of directors; Dr. Leonardo Ortega, board vice chair; Dr. Wilfredo Nieves, Hector Torres and Andrew Jezic, board members; Angelo Solara, vice chair of the Mayor's Committee on Hispanic Affairs; and Rahn Barnes, Provident Bank of Maryland.

On the night of her company's holiday party three years ago, Amy Strong's date called her to cancel. Just hours before the biggest party of the year for the staff of Union Memorial Hospital, she was left dateless and wearing a new dress. Instead of sitting at home and feeling sorry for herself, Amy went solo to the event at the Belvedere in Baltimore. "I figured I would just go for the dinner, and leave before the dancing started," she said. Toward the end of dinner the band began to play and Amy felt a tap on her shoulder.

"A DANCE craze hit America during the late 1930s and early 1940s," according to Goucher dance professor Chrystelle Trump Bond, writing in the current issue of the Maryland Historical Magazine. And what were local folks dancing during World War II?"Most popular of all was the jitterbug. Despite segregation in the armed forces, defense plants, and the USO, young Americans regardless of gender, race, or class danced the African-based movements of the jitterbug."Incorporating steps from African-American dances like the Lindy hop, boogie woogie, shag, trucking, Charleston, Susie-Q, Shorty-George, and camel walk, jitterbuggers pulsated to syncopated rhythms, especially when dancing to music of the Benny Goodman Orchestra featuring the thrilling drums of Gene Krupa.

The jazz band played a swing number. Couples spun and swirled on the dance floor beneath the white twinkle lights strung from the ceiling of the Seton Keough High School cafeteria. And Mary Koch wasn't about to sit there at her table, sipping Shasta. She had broken her neck in an elevator accident last year, but that wasn't going to stop her. At 95, Koch was attending her first prom. She took the hand of the director of admissions at her retirement home, twirled around, shimmied her hips and swung her blue pleated skirt to show a little more leg. Growing up in Locust Point, Koch had quit school at 14 to take a job in a sugar factory.
