Deep Dance 68 [UPD]
They also regularly danced at the Lai Lai Ballroom & Studio in nearby Alhambra, which is where Tran went late Saturday night soon after the shooting at Star Dance. Tran entered the lobby of Lai Lai with a semi-automatic pistol, where he was met by 26-year-old Brandon Tsay, whose family owns the dance hall.

Page grabbed Mosby's hand in class as she guided her through the dance movements. She showed Mosby the motion of the movement with her hands: "We're gonna go out. Flex the same time as you come in, and out, flex, in."
"I'd be crazy if I thought of Brenda as limited in any way," Page said. "Teaching her went deep in another way that has definitely made me realize that people with disabilities are proficient in so many other ways."
Binder and Howe hired the production crew, repeating their collaboration with various people whom they had used for past specials. Billy Goldenberg was assigned as the musical director, while the Presley camp chose Billy Strange as the arranger. Chris Bearde and Allan Blye were hired as the writers, and Bill Belew for the costume design. Bearde and Blye proposed an idea based on Maurice Maeterlinck's The Blue Bird that was intended to portray Presley's career through his songs. Singer's representative Alfred Discipio approved the idea, as did Parker. The snippets of the story were connected by a number covering Jerry Reed's "Guitar Man." An informal segment was planned featuring Presley talking to members of his entourage in a scripted conversation that was to show him as self-deprecating while discussing his film performances. A gospel number would be added, as well as a live standup performance. The Christmas song, requested by Parker, would then be played, and the special would close with a spoken statement by Presley. Binder wanted Presley to express his feelings about the current social climate, as Presley had been moved by the recent assassinations of Senator Robert F. Kennedy and Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. King's assassination deeply touched Presley, who felt that the murder, which occurred in Memphis, Tennessee, "only confirmed everyone's worst feelings about the south."
It seemed like everyone was rebelling, in Detroit and around the world. The band for the back-to-school dance at our Catholic high school that fall was the loud and anarchistic MC5, just as the band was starting to break out nationally.
The Year of the Tiger was also a year of rising tensions in the city. Detroit was anxious and angry in 1968. Paranoia ran deep. Black activists mobilized on a number of fronts, including auto plants, where black members of the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement rose up against the union, the company and capitalism. In May, mounted police outside of Cobo Hall charged into a crowd of hundreds of civil rights activists, black and white, injuring dozens. In March, mainly black Post Junior High students walked out in a dispute with the administration and tangled with police.
1968 was a hell of a year. The assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King had deeply affected Elvis (he strongly suspected conspiracies). While he wanted to project his heretofore slumbering rock god self, he also wanted to infuse the proceedings with messages of racial harmony, anguish over loss, and above all, a shimmering hope.
Dolostone is found throughout the state. It is mined in quarries. Dolostone quarries are located mainly in the northern one-fourth, along the western side and in the southern tip of the state where this rock is close to the surface. Dolostone deposits in the remainder of the state are deep underground and would be difficult and expensive to remove.
There are some nights when all you want is to get dressed up with your besties, head to the nearest bar, and dance the night away. Other times, you'd rather stay in for the night, don your most comfortable pajamas, scarf down a buffet of unhealthy snacks, and gossip over endless glasses of wine. For the evenings when you prefer to stay in and kick it with your girlfriends, it's essential that you gather around your television screen for one of the best movies that will inevitably leave you in stitches or in tears (maybe both). What you need in this situation is one of the best chick flicks.
If you and your girlfriends are in the mood of a deep emotional release, For Colored Girls will do the trick. Adapted from Ntozake Shange (opens in new tab)'s 1975 original choreopoem, the drama connects the heartbreak of ten women, reminding us that sisterhood is about lifting each other up when we're down.
A poor little rich girl falls for the sexy dance instructor at her summer resort, even as society (okay, mostly her dad) tries to keep them apart. Plus dancing. It's a classic that will energize everyone in attendance at your girls' night film festival.
A group of besties have the best shopping trip ever when they find a pair of jeans that somehow manages to flatter all of their bodies (what witchcraft is this, and where can I get a pair?!), and they share custody of the magic pants over the course of the summer. The jeans help them reunite with family, battle deep emotional trauma, and even find true love.
The costumes. The makeup. CHER! There's so much to love about Burlesque. Christina Aguilera stars as an aspiring burlesque dancer at an aging L.A. club, but has to deal with the club's headstrong owner (played by Cher) and a few jealous dancers. Soon she meets a cocky businessman (McSteamy himself, Eric Dane) who wants to buy the club and turn it into luxury condos.
There is no match. No comparison. No other. Mahomes has come from a distant star to alter the way we think about quarterbacks. To blow up our expectations, raise the bar a million miles and force us to reconsider what it means to ride as an MVP. Kansas City's beating heart lands as a performer who pulls from the deepest inner rooms to silence pain, ignore the odds and craft his own tomorrow. His heroic last-gasp scramble against the Eagles could fairly be labeled the greatest play in Super Bowl history. Too much? Perhaps I'm impacted by watching it in person, realizing in the hours that followed what a privilege it was to see Mahomes ripping through Philly's confused defense in real time for 26 yards -- to help set the table for a game-winning field goal that would trigger the second Lombardi of his career. A month ago, it was fair to ask what else Mahomes could do to transform what we feel about him. He'd already achieved so much -- so quickly, so young -- but here we are. Multiple championships, multiple MVPs -- and a sense that it's all just beginning for the league's brightest light.
Tua's heady numbers and sky-high marks from PFF tell the tale of a player who largely answered his critics. What about the deep ball? Would he simply be benched for Teddy Bridgewater by Halloween? Instead, he teamed gorgeously with Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, elevating his worth in a quarterback-friendly scheme run by young wizard Mike McDaniel. His ghastly prime-time performance against the Chargers raised weather-worn questions, but the bigger concern is Tua's future in football after a series of concussions.
Philip Rivers once received a Comeback Player of the Year nod for improving marginally from one autumn to the next. Snagging that same award earlier this month, Geno offered something far meatier, sticking it to his summertime critics (read: this blogger) by waltzing into a post-Russ universe, starting every game and blasting Wilson's single-season Seahawks passing record into the sun. He also led the league in completion percentage, crafted a 32-to-12 touchdown-to-pick ratio and displayed dramatic improvement as a deep-strike artist. Few players have more effectively dropped a continent-clearing hammer on the haters.
Howell slayed Dallas in the regular-season finale with a deep touchdown toss to Terry McLaurin alongside 35 yards and a score on the ground. It's too bad we didn't see more of him down the stretch, but the fifth-rounder showed enough to Ron Rivera to waltz into the offseason as Washington's top option.
A preseason hero, Thompson was shoved into action after a rash of concussions and injuries swept Tua Tagovailoa and Teddy Bridgewater from the lineup. The rookie hit on 57.1 percent of his passes at 5.1 yards per throw in the same offense that saw Tua lead the league at 8.9 yards per heave. His wild-card start against Buffalo featured 27 incompletions, a killer delay of game penalty and a pick deep in Dolphins territory. Thompson also made a handful of throws and was hardly the only figure of blame in the 34-31 loss. He's done enough to hang around as a reserve.
There was no better advertisement for Ryan Tannehill than spending Sundays watching Willis dance around the pocket in a state of confusion. Mike Vrabel decisively benched the third-rounder with the season on the line in favor of Joshua Dobbs. It's unrealistic to view Willis as anything more than a project heading into a pressure-packed '23 in Tennessee.
Peterman's lone start came by way of Justin Fields resting his hip in Week 18. Operating as a deep backup (he was made active after No. 2 man Trevor Siemian was lost to an oblique injury), years could pass before we again lay eyes on Nathan.
Driskel walked on stage as a hot-and-cold side piece to Davis Mills, used primarily to scamper with the ball and leave the arm action to his dance partner. The good cop, bad cop act quietly pointed to the potential meaninglessness of human life. 041b061a72
