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."

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.

Club Choices Despite its fancy facade, Club Choices is nowhere near those suit-and-tie-relax-and-cocktail clubs. Instead, its smoky and dimly lit interior creates an atmosphere that will make "shaking-off" to Baltimore club music seem second nature. Where -- 1815 N. Charles St. Call -- 410-752-4602 Notable -- You've probably heard its name mentioned on the radio in the wee hours of the night. Or perhaps you've driven past the glitzy club on late Saturday nights and have seen people walking in and out. While every other club is closing its doors at 2 a.m. on Saturday nights, Club Choices kicks the fun into another gear and keeps the music pumping until dawn.

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.

Arthur Murray said he made a business out of ballroom dancing, but his real business was making people feel better about themselves. His success at it made him a very rich man at his death at age 95 last weekend in Honolulu.If the smiles and charm of Arthur Murray dance instructors were not always genuine -- in 1946, disgruntled instructors went on strike wearing prison uniforms -- neither did the thousands of students who flocked to Murray's studios necessarily expect them to be. Murray understood that the mystique of gliding around a dance floor was the allure of a world apart, a place where smiles and charm for their own sake are as essential as rhythm.

It figures. Just when we'd finally written him off as a musical irrelevance, banished forever to the nether regions of the gossip columns, Michael Jackson goes and upends our preconceptions by making a good album. Is the guy trying to make life difficult for music critics, or what?Appallingly enough, Jackson pulls it off without even bothering to deliver a full album of new material. "Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix" (Epic 68000, arriving in stores today) is basically a five-song EP, padded out to album length by eight remixes from his 1995 album "HIStory."
