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.

One of the frustrations of urban bar life is that the cocktail mix of liquid refreshment and outgoing people may make you want to get up and dance, only to discover that the bar has a 29-cent-stamp-sized dance floor.That's why a good-sized dance floor is always welcome news. At Icebreakers, an alternative dance club, the oak floor is ready to withstand plenty of hard black shoes and fashion statement boots.

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.

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.

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.
