Also, before we go any farther....nobody asked for my opinion...BUT...

HOW MANY MORE INNOCENT AMERICANS MUST
DIE OR BE SERIOUSLY INJURED
BEFORE WE
STOP ALL CELL PHONE DRIVING

IN THE US?

Not one of the 60,000+ deaths or 250,000+ injuries in America in 2008 resulting from texting and talking on the phone is worth any one of those phone calls or text messages; not to mention the hundreds of thousands that have taken place since. This is not just a teenager problem or a commercial truck or bus driver problem, this is a serious problem and an ongoing danger to innocent people that involves EVERY SINGLE DRIVER in this country. So why are we still pondering over the use of cell phones while driving in the US? DC and several states have already wisely and responsibly outlawed the use of all cell phones while driving and now it needs to be a national restriction. Are we going to continue allowing the lobbyists of the wealthy phone companies to continue to rule congress in America, or are we each going to stand up to the plate and do something about it?

Please commit to making any automobile
that you're riding in an official

Visit www.StopAllCellPhoneDriving.org to learn how you can help
to eliminate this deadly obsession from America's highways. Keep in mind
that the next life that is lost (and there will be MANY before we stop this
irresponsible practice) may well be your life or the life of someone you love.


And I hope you were able to see my first 'World Premiere" at the Kennedy Center (OK, so maybe it wasn't actually MY World Premiere...except for the Tango choreography, including a "searing Tango" between Tom Buchanan and Gatsby as depicted by The Washington Post... "[Artistic Director Septime] Webre does a tremandous job at keeping the ballet in motion. A searing Tango spells out the danger between Gatsby and Tom")
Wed, Feb 24 - Sun, Feb 28 Tango in 'The Great Gatsby' at the Eisenhower Theatre of the Kennedy Center

(Wednesday's performance is completely sold out and tickets for all evening performances are limited).
A Tango scene was added late in the makings of the World Premiere of 'The Great Gatsby' performed by the Washington Ballet at the Kennedy Center, to include both Argentine and International style choreographed by Rene' Davila and Terry Chasteen. One more opportunity to get our beloved Tango into the mainstream theatre through what promises to be a groundbreaking new musical. Times and ticket Information available at www.TangoDanceSPORT.com , www.DanceDirt.com and www.WashingtonBallet.org to include group discount information. The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, 2700 F Street, NW Washington, DC 20566. Contact: TerryChasteen@TangoDanceSPORT.com , 202-462-0870.


Luis Torres and Elizabeth Gaither as Tom and Daisy Buchanan in the Washington Ballet's 'The Great Gatsby'.

'The Great Gatsby', a World Premiere about to hit the stage of the Eisenhower Theatre at the Kennedy Center from Feb 24-28 is a Secret of DC about to be unleashed. This incredibly fun-filled musical of the Roaring 20's era performed by the 'Washington Ballet' under the guidance of artistic director Septeem Webre is LOADED with some of the most incredible song and dance numbers of nearly every style, including tap, Charleston, jazz, Swing and more PLUS an Argentine, International AND American style Tango scene co-choreographed by Rene' Davila and YOURS TRULY! Our first World Premiere!
"The Washington Ballet returns to the splendor of the Jazz Age and the frivolity of the Roaring Twenties through Artistic Director Septeem Webre's re-imagining of F. Scott Fitzgerald's passionate, thought-provoking, and complex work". Visit www.DanceDirt.com for details, including ticket purchases and group discounts (and you should hurry! They're selling fast!).

Ernesto Reyes' SAOCO DC Rueda Dance Group

Rueda de Casino (commonly known as Salsa Rueda) is a Cuban Street dance originally done in the 50's in Cuba but became increasingly popular in the 90's in the U.S. Dance historians suggest that Rueda originated as a dance done primarily among poor, black Cubans who could not afford to belong to the social clubs (a.k.a. casinos) found in the cities. More affluent Cubans adopted the dance and moved the dance form into the social clubs where it became known as Rueda de Casino. The dance was seldom done outside of Cuba until the poorer African-Cubans (who continue to be the primary innovators of the dance) were able to migrate abroad. The emergence of Rueda outside of Cuba began in Miami but has now spread all over the U.S.

Rueda is composed of the same footwork done in Salsa but couples dance in a round (Rueda is Spanish for wheel). Couples initially assemble in a circle and the Rueda leader or "caller" yells out patterns. One of the unique features of Rueda is that couples perform synchronized patterns and change partners in response to the caller's instruction—much like what is done in square dancing- but funky, spicy and hot!
