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.

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.

lt may be difficult to design a model that would fit every racehorse owner. But there's at least this: If the owner is a guy, he'll usually be wearing a shirt.But if he's sipping his Black-Eyed Susan bare-chested, you can be pretty sure you're in the company of Hammer.Just Hammer.Not Mr. Hammer, as the young woman trailing after him near the Pimlico stakes barn insisted until she got his autograph.Hammer. Like Madonna. Or Slash. Or Charo.It used to be M.C. Hammer. It used to be Sonny and Cher, too. Things change.

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.
