Every day for three years, when Darlene Love stepped onto a Broadway stage to sing, she was transported to Baltimore — to the city of big hair and 1960s dance music — playing a teenager who gives dance lessons to a girl longing to be on the Corny Collins Show. Tomorrow, her role in "Hairspray" long behind her, she comes to the city of Hon to host a live Maryland Public Television premiere of her new DVD, "Darlene Love: The Concert of Love. " For those who may not have grown up singing along on the radio to "He's sure the boy I am going to marry" or "Da Doo Ron Ron," Love was a voice behind many 1960s hits.

John Clark ought to be a happy man. He has a successful law practice in Chicago. He's married to a beautiful woman who loves him. And they have two terrific kids. But - as we learn in Shall We Dance? - the spark has gone out of his life. If you're thinking midlife crisis, that doesn't quite do it. John (Richard Gere) isn't in crisis so much as he's in stasis. Let's call it a midlife rut. Shall We Dance? - the brassy new Hollywood remake of the delicate 1996 Japanese film - is about how this man rediscovers the romance within himself by enrolling in a ballroom-dancing class.

For more than 22 years, Friday Night Swing Club has welcomed thousands of dancers 16 and older of every ability to tango, cha-cha, foxtrot, jitterbug, salsa, waltz, hustle and others, from 9 p.m. to midnight Friday nights. The club started at the ROTC building at Johns Hopkins University, then moved to the Boomi Temple on Charles Street until that property was sold to Loyola University Maryland. Through the years, the club's home has been the Scottish Rite Temple in Tuscany-Canterbury, Tall Cedars Club and the Towson Armory.

The sweet-natured Japanese drama "Shall We Dance?" opens in a gilded dance hall with a voice-over primer in Japanese social repression. "The idea that a husband and wife should embrace and dance in front of each other is beyond embarrassment," says Shohei Sugiyama, a Tokyo businessman who discovers joy through ballroom dancing.For an American audience, the explanation provides a national context that transforms "Shall We Dance?" into more than a film about hoofing it in the Far East, a mere Japanese version of "Strictly Ballroom."

When Melissa Reilly began taking dance lessons from Judy Daniel, she never imagined she'd grow up to be a dance instructor herself -- and married to her teacher's son. Melissa, who started dance lessons at age 3, began taking classes from Judy in 1986. That was when Judy was teaching in a rented church hall and her son Dave spent many evenings trying to distract the dancers with comic antics. "I remember him getting yelled at a lot because he would try to play basketball in the middle of class," Melissa says.

This episode was full of ups and downs, but was a great one overall. Again, I'm not sure if they've actually been that good, or if I'm just slowly getting nostalgic because "Jersey Shore" is coming to an end. Either way, the second to last episode ever did not disappoint. The Cliff Notes version: We find out Mike was a stripper in college. Paula and Mike fight, makeup and he still leaves with a random. Pauly D finally gets it in and the whole house gets an ear-full. Snooki and Deena hold meatball auditions.
