    A "No dancing or swaying" instruction on tickets to Egyptian pop sensation Tamer Hosny's upcoming concert in Saudi Arabia has triggered an avalanche of mockery and ridicule on social media. Thousands of fans were taken by surprise when tickets for Hosny's first-ever Saudi concert in the western city of Jeddah on March 30 came with the edict that dancing was "strictly prohibited". "Ladies and gentlemen, please fasten your seat belts," one Twitter user said. "The corridors and seats will be equipped with sway detectors. Anyone who thinks about swaying will be kicked out."

    Wheeeee, it's the start of Olympic Ice Dancing!!!!!! Mr. Roo Roo is wavering between homicide and suicide. We have to flip back and forth between ice dancing and two man bobsled or we might have to get a divorce. Okay,here is my expert opinion on ice dancing: there should be point subtractions for bad outfits and women's armpits with five oclock shadows. Seriously.

    Megyn Kelly’s slot of the “Today” show desperately needs a ratings boost after less than a month on the air. On Thursday, Hoda Kotb, the ever-upbeat popular “Today” host from another hour appeared as a guest. They chatted. They danced. They tried to get the audience on its feet dancing, too. Critics hated the moment. “I’ve never been so embarrassed,” tweeted BuzzFeed News’s Kate Aurthur. “I feel nothing but second-hand embarrassment for Megyn Kelly,” chimed in media critic Ian Miles Cheong. Vulture called the clip “22 nearly unbearable seconds.”

    HOLLYWOOD, California, October 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — After Victoria Arlen spent four years in a “vegetative” state, many in the medical establishment had given up on her. Now she’s whirling across a stage competing on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” At age 11, Arlen started showing signs of two rare disorders that caused swelling in her brain and spinal cord. But doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong. Untreated, she began to lose function in her legs, then her hands and arms. She couldn’t swallow and couldn’t think of the words she wanted to say. Ultimately, her body shut down...

    Hillary Clinton got her groove on after a campaign rally in New Hampshire on Friday. After Clinton finished her speech, she and five other female politicians broke out into a jig to Clinton's signature tune, "Fight Song" by Rachel Platten. "This is my fight song, take back my life song, prove I'm all right song!" the song blared. "My power's turned on, starting right now I'll be strong!" Clinton wriggled her arms to the song, and her politician buddies joined in. She then embraced Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.) on one side and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D., N.H.) on the...

    Hillary Clinton tries very hard to convince people she isn't 68 years old. Case in point, the Democratic presidential front-runner appeared on "Ellen" Monday morning and hit a particularly cringe-worthy version of the "Dab," the new dance popular with NFL players and eleven-year-olds across the country.

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. - A second city on Tuesday withdrew its invitation for Rhode Island's "Dancing Cop" to direct holiday traffic because of his activism against the Black Lives Matter movement. The retired officer responded by blasting the head of the Providence NAACP and threatening to sue his detractors for defamation. East Providence Mayor Thomas Rose called Tony Lepore on Tuesday morning to tell him city leaders did not support his planned performance, Lepore said. A City Council vote that had been scheduled for Tuesday evening was canceled. Lepore, who retired from the Providence Police Department in 1989, has been directing...

    ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars will not permit two men to dance as a couple during a special performance. An openly gay singer, Who Is Fancy (yes, that is what he calls himself), is set to perform his new song, “Boys Like You,” with Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor on the reality competition show’s November 23 episode. The song is about a man falling in love with another man, so the singer’s choreographer wanted to have two men dancing with each other in the performance. TMZ reports the network will not allow it.Sources say that that DWTS...

    - A spate of noisy disputes between middle-aged women and nearby residents has prompted China's communist leaders to step in and regulate dancing in public places, state media said Monday. Groups of dancers often gather on China's public squares and street corners performing choreographed routines to loud music, sometimes provoking anger from neighbours. China will step up efforts to manage such dancers, creating a "public square dancing management mechanism" which will be "under government leadership", the official Xinhua news agency reported. "Public square dancing will enter into the social management system," Xinhua cited a joint statement from four central departments...

    "Listen," said Lennox, "Twerking is not feminism. Thats what I'm referring to. It's not -- it's not liberating, it's not empowering. It's a sexual thing that you're doing on a stage; it doesn't empower you. That's my feeling about it."

    There has been a lot of very good discussion on yesterday’s blog post on the banishment of “dirty dancing” at many school dances. Much of the discussion has centered on modesty. Modesty is a beautiful, essential and often diminished virtue in today’s “tell-all,” ”show-all” world. There are many good definitions of modesty. Websters dictionary defines modesty first as freedom from conceit or vanity and secondly as propriety in dress, speech or conduct. It is the second definition that concerns us. While the Websters definition of modesty is surely accurate I would like to say that the most beautiful and thought-provoking...

    The latest recording cost about $1,600 and was produced to be shown at the end of a 2010 training and leadership conference held in Anaheim, Calif., said IRS spokeswoman Michelle Eldridge. At a time when most government agencies are coping with across-the-board spending cuts by furloughing workers and finding other savings, that conference has become the target of a report a Treasury inspector general plans to release next week. The report, called "Collected and Wasted: The IRS Spending Culture and Conference Abuses," will be the subject of a hearing Thursday by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, that panel...
