“Small Town Security” Recap: The Land Of A Thousand Hoarding Dances

This week’s episode of “Small Town Security” takes a break from chronicling Lieutenant Denis Croft’s time traveling love affair with his boss Chief Joan Koplan, and instead focuses on Joan’s husband Irwin.

“SYTYCD”: Our Favorite Performances From Last Night’s “So You Think You Can Dance”

First Time For Everything: Dancing At Coyote Ugly

Here’s a thing I can promise: If you invite me to your wedding, your other guests will comment on the quality of my dancing. It’s inevitable.

Strike A Pose, There’s Nothing To It

The documentary about New York’s drag scene, “Paris is Burning,” is one of my favorite movies of all time, so it figures that I’m really excited to check out the new book, Voguing and the House Ballroom Scene of New York.

Tom Cruise Boogies Down Xenu Style

See Tom Cruise. See Tom Cruise sing. See Tom Cruise dance. See Tom Cruise embarrass himself.

I Wanna Dance With This Guy

You know what always puts a smile on my face? Someone dancing like nobody is watching. Like this older gentleman (and his lady dance partner) totally getting down to a live band performing “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” I love that he’s actually acting out all of the lyrics. Oh! And the way he…
