It's "Country Night," which is not my thing at all. If I know more than one of the songs tonight I'll be impressed with myself. I gave up on country music right around 1984. The night starts with a group dance by the troupe to a live performance by Little Big Town of that pontoon song. Pontoon is a word that makes me giggle. One of these women clearly took a picture of Glenn Close from "Fatal Attraction" into her hairdresser and said, "Give me this. " Bunnies, watch out. Tom introduces the cast by calling them "Y'all Stars" -- no, Tom, no. Don't make me not love you. As they pan across the couples gathered on the dance floor, Gilles and Peta stick out like a sore thumb because of their costumes; Gilles is in a sheer shirt with a v-neck that's closer to his navel than his collarbone and Peta is in a top hat and satin jacket -- not at all country.

Tonight is the first night the couples will do two full dances (where one is not a dance-off or a group dance). During the staircase introductions, Jacoby is wearing a cowboy hat. I can't wait to see what that means for their routine. Also, today is Tom Bergeron's birthday and why this isn't a national holiday, I don't know. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH. Round One Zendaya & Val Chmerkovskiy Foxtrot Val is trying to ignite Zendaya's competitive spirit, but her smile always makes him chuckle.

The show opens with Tom and Brooke alone on the stage, acknowledging the tragic events Boston today. I understand the need to address it, and I'm also glad to have my silly dancing show to distract me from the awfulness. The show opens with the pros in an enclosed corridor offstage and then they all come out for a group dance, joined by the former pros that will presumably dancing with the couples tonight. That's tonight's gimmick: this season's couples will be doing their routines alongside a pro couple.

Mansur Richard Conviser studies the delivery of health services to uninsured people living with HIV/AIDS for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Mansur is his Sufi name. In his spare time, the Glenwood resident teaches Dances of Universal Peace. "A lot of dancing, when it's connected with dating, is about emphasizing one's individuality and specialness," Conviser said. "These dances, you blend with other people in doing the dances.

It's the weekend and you're looking for some fun - a night out on the town, to be specific. You'd like to go dancing, hear a local band, check out the hot new DJ everyone's talking about or maybe meet some new people. Trouble is, you're under 21, and that puts limits on your enjoyment of the night life. What's a person not of legal drinking age to do when that person wants to go nightclubbing? Well, if you're 18 to 20, you can get into a number of clubs (and bars) in the area; you just can't drink alcohol.
