Is there any bar or nightclub in Baltimore worth a $20 cover charge? If so - and I'm not convinced there is - it certainly was not Paparazzi Nightclub on a recent Friday night. The dance club that replaced the concert venue Sonar in February describes itself on its website as "one of the top destinations to visit in Baltimore nightlife. " It was only a destination if someone were in search of a test of patience. Paparazzi is split into two rooms, just like Sonar . On this night, the smaller area held a "Ladies Night" hosted by 92Q's Konan.

Something caught William Ryan's eye, compelling him to venture into the throng of teens grooving to Rihanna's "Don't Stop the Music." The principal inched forward amid pulsating violet light, waving an index finger and admonishing a couple who he felt were getting a little too close. Ryan sent the pair off the River Hill High School dance floor for a 10-minute "cooling-off" period. "This is not a club, it's a school," the 44-year-old principal said later. "There is a difference."

Some 30 years ago, a local rock 'n' roll band called the Van Dykes reigned at the Maidenchoice and Arbutus teen centers in Baltimore County.On those weekend nights, my crowd and other kids packed the centers. The dancing -- to songs like "Keep Searchin' " and "Shout" -- was frenetic, the apron of the stage was mobbed with fans, boys linedthe walls scouting for suitable dance partners, and girls converged in the bathrooms to apply more lipstick and compare notes about theirdates.When I heard in January that the band would be performing at TurfValley Country Club, I knew I had to go. My second thought was: "Howold are these guys anyway?"

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.

If Chaz Bono and Bristol Palin can dance - well then, so can you. Maybe not like a pro, maybe not well enough to make a living at it - it's a rare gift to be able to moonwalk like Michael Jackson or to twirl and shimmy like Stacy Keibler. But dancing is supposed to be fun, not something only the elite can do. Everybody does it, whether at a high school mixer, a cousin's wedding reception or a high-class society ball. Becoming a really good dancer takes serious resolve and tons of hard work.

The minute Janeen Simon found her perfect wedding dress, she knew she had to get another one. Her first dress - a Maggie Sottero diamond-white, sweetheart-style frock adorned in ruffles and anchored by an asymmetrical train - was stunning, but she imagined it was going to be difficult to maneuver in it on a hot August day. Plus, she wanted to dance and show off her rhinestone-encrusted Jimmy Choo heels. "I knew it would be hard to balance the dress and shoes on the dance floor," the 26-year-old Owings Mills resident said.

They danced to the musical stylings of the 19-piece Mr. Dance orchestra. Graceful couples twirled, dipped and sashayed to the sounds of their youth -- Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman -- the men in classic tailored suits, the women in chiffon, silk and satin.And when it was time to choose the king and queen of the prom yesterday, there wasn't really any competition. Bill and Betty Byrne, who effortlessly glided around the Boumi Temple dance floor all afternoon, were the obvious choice for the honors at the Senior Citizens Prom, sponsored by Loyola College.
