I think this takes some beating....and it's real. Anyone care to suggest some unlikely dance headlines?

Soroptomists hear of belly dance success
From Ross-Shire Journal (Scotland)

THE guest speaker at the February meeting of Soroptimist International of Easter Ross was Wendy Sanders, Arts Development Officer for Ross And Cromarty who gave a most interesting talk on her role and responsibilities.

Ah, well, I don't think it's likely I'll ever see the one headline I'd like to: Something along the lines of

"Ballerina Signs Multi-Million Dollar Contract"

but one could dream! ;)

CNN Headline Arts ... The Royal opened its "Swan Lake" series this evening with Darcy Bussell scoring a perfect 32 fouttes ... More at the bottom of the hour ... Meanwhile Houston triumphed on the road in Atlanta with a difficult mixed program ... Sara Webb was called to stand in for the injured Lauren Anderson ... However, San Francisco slumped at home with another uninspiring performance of "Othello" ... In a post-performance press conference, Artistic Director Helgi Tomasson admitted, "You win some. You lose some." ... Stay tuned ... CNN Headlines Arts ... All arts ... Around the clock
