The Ravens signed strong safety Bernard Pollard to compete with Tom Zbikowski and Haruki Nakamura for a spot in the starting lineup. If dancing is the tiebreaker in this competition, Pollard will have it locked up. Check out this video of Pollard, who used to play for the Chiefs, from when “Hard Knocks” was in Kansas City in 2007. From what I'm told, his moves would put some of the girls on the Block to shame. I wouldn't know.

Alyssa Jones felt numb Saturday as she gathered with dozens of other girls on the basketball court of the Downtown Athletic Club. Dressed in teeny shorts and bedazzled bra tops, the 220 ladies, and some guys as well, were all there pursuing the same dream: to become a Ravens cheerleader.   Tryout weekend is an annual event that is as important to some women as getting into college or becoming mothers. It is something they have worked toward for years. Competition is fierce for just 50 to 60 spots on the team, either on the stunt team or the dance team.

Jacoby Jones danced in several NFL end zones this season as he went from unheralded free agent pickup to one of the heroes of the Ravens' Super Bowl XLVII victory over the San Francisco 49ers earlier this month. He'll now take his dance moves to another stage, and this time, they'll be judged. The wide receiver and Pro Bowl return man was unveiled by ABC tonight as one of the contestants on 'Dancing With the Stars.' The rest of the cast will be announced Tuesday on Good Morning America . Season 16 of the show will debut on March 18 on ABC. The announcement was made during a commercial break of tonight's Academy Awards on ABC. "Jacoby Jones just won a Super Bowl ring," the commercial said.

Ravens running back Ray Rice, whose legs are like those of a mid-sized rhino, endorses a workout supplement called RipFire. To promote the product, he recently filmed a video for FOX Sports with Bernie, the Baltimore fan who has given me fodder for past blog posts such as an Orioles version of "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails and former Ravens back Willis McGahee busting out dance moves , including "The Carlton. " If you are like me and you enjoyed Rice's performance in those M&T Bank commercials, you'll want to see his fine acting in this video.

Step Up 2 the Streets scores some serious points for its dance moves but does a lousy job of remembering there's a lot more to this big old world than moving your feet. A sequel to 2006's surprise shot-in-Baltimore hit Step Up, it posits a world (set and filmed again in Charm City) where the only thing of any importance is winning the local underground dance competition - in this case, an on-the-sly showdown between warring crews dubbed The Streets.

You can't beat Bob Fosse. The dance moves created by the late, legendary Broadway choreographer are so definitive that their interpretations by local choreographer Lori Struss are reason enough to see "Chicago," now being revived by Columbia's Silhouette Stages. The production, which runs at Slayton House until the end of the weekend, has more to offer than spiffy dance moves, however. There's also some fine acting, powerful singing and a story that's, well, pretty strange, but nonetheless interesting and very provocative.

Because two hours of auditions last night weren't enough, the "America's Got Talent" season 7 premiere continued into Tuesday night. Tonight, we're in San Francisco, so naturally Nick Cannon has to introduce the show by yelling atop the Golden Gate Bridge (last night, he yelled ferociously atop a desert mesa). San Francisco Auditions First up: David and the CMYK's, an aptly named group. They somehow manage to break dance to some Mozart while beautifully painting a huge canvas with the composer's face.

Over the past two years, the Top 40 list has continuously featured at least one graduate of the school, and 18 singles on the Top 100 chart for last year were by Okinawa Actor's School graduates.

They're cute, friendly and very pink. They know how to make a scene, swivel their hips and then disappear quickly. For the 15 members of Pink Bloque, a group of twentysomethings based in Chicago who protest by dancing in the streets, pink is the color of feminism and political activism. And dance is the ultimate weapon. On Tuesday night, the group brought its punchy outfits and big smiles to a four-hour workshop at the Patterson, a restored movie theater in Highlandtown, with the Creative Alliance serving as host.

For most of his 11 years, Dakotah Price has expressed his feelings with dance moves. He spontaneously bursts into steps and sings along to a favorite tune, oblivious to whoever might be watching. "Dancing is the way I feel when I am happy or excited," he said. But lately he has gone from uninhibited hip-hop at home in Edgemere to structured steps at the ballet barre of a school for the arts in Baltimore. With no formal dance training, other than a two-week course in ballroom, Dakotah has won a scholarship to study ballet at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University in Mount Vernon.

If you had told me I would be a member of the Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Inc., I would have looked at you like you were crazy. Iota Phi who? Never heard of them. Growing up, the only fraternity I saw on television was Omega Psi Phi. But even as a freshman at Coppin State University, I knew I wanted to pledge a fraternity and join a brotherhood that had a lot of social benefits. At first, I wanted to find a frat that had my favorite colors - blue and red. And just my luck, there were two fraternities with those colors.
