Baur's Opera House was an institution of sorts in Springfield Ill., a nightspot that was popular for its drinks, dancing and 3 a.m. closing time.When the Illinois Legislature was in session during Baur's heyday in the early 1980s, it was sometimes said that enough lawmakers could be found on the dance floor to make a quorum.But in recent years, when the dance floor filled up with young blacks, the management tended to pull the plug on dance music and switch to heavy metal rock, according to litigation that is now before a federal appeals court panel.

It's 1 o'clock in the morning at the New Haven nightclub in Northeast Baltimore and Reggie Thomas is busy doing his thing on the dance floor.This man can really dance. He is twirling his partner now with his right hand while his feet beat out an intricate little tattoo on the polished floor.Then he switches hands and spins her the other way from the waist before catching her in a classic ballroom pose that immediately segues into something that looks like a combination jitterbug and Lindy Hop.And the guy never misses a step.

Why would someone like Dmitry, better known as Super DJ Dmitry Brill of the group Deee-Lite, be DJ'ing a rave in Baltimore? After all, he's enjoyed success with Deee-Lite, whose debut album "World Clique" took the group out of the New York club underground and made it a dance-floor senation.Why would he want to spin records at an all-night dance party in a Baltimore warehouse?The reason is simple: Dmitry likes to rave."I DJ for a rave practically every weekend," he said over the phone from his home in New York City.

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.

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.

A young man who was severely beaten on a dance floor packed with drunken patrons at a now-closed Baltimore nightclub can sue the owners and allege negligence, the state's second highest court has ruled. The court unanimously overturned a decision by a city Circuit Court judge who threw out the suit against the Iguana Cantina before it got to trial. The judge had ruled that the club's owners could not have predicted the fight that occurred in September 2008 and could not have "controlled this dangerous condition or situation.

Has the King of Pop turned into the King of Flop?Michael Jackson may be one of pop music's most eccentric performers, but he's also one of its most dependable hit-makers. In addition to having released the highest-selling album in history, 1982's "Thriller," he has generated a dozen No. 1 pop singles -- a feat only Elvis Presley and the Beatles have been able to better. Add in his career with the Jackson 5, and he has been Top of the Pops for 28 of his 38 years.But that hot streak has come to an abrupt end with his new album, "Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix."

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.
