Did You Know? - A smile is a facial expression formed by flexing the muscles near both ends of the mouth. The smile can also be found around the eyes (see 'Duchenne Smiling' below). Among humans, it is an expression denoting pleasure, joy, happiness, or amusement, but can also be an involuntary expression of anxiety, in which case it is known as a grimace. Smiling is something that is understood by everyone despite culture, race, or religion; it is internationally known. Cross-cultural studies have shown that smiling is a means of communicating emotions throughout the world.

Line dance time
The dance floor is full
Did You Know? - Each dance is said to consist of a number of walls. A wall is the direction in which the dancers face at any given time: the front (the direction faced at the beginning of the dance), the back or one of the sides. Dancers may change direction many times during a sequence, and may even, at any given point, be facing in a direction half-way between two walls; but at the end of the sequence they will be facing the original wall or any of the other three. Whichever wall that is, the next iteration of the sequence uses that wall as the new frame of reference.
- In a one-wall dance, the dancers face the same direction at the end of the sequence as at the beginning.
- In a two-wall dance, repetitions of the sequence end alternately at the back and front walls. In other words, the dancers have effectively turned through 180 degrees during one set. The samba line dance is an example of a two-wall dance. While doing the "volte" step, the dancers turn 180 degrees to face a new wall.
- In a four-wall dance, the direction faced at the end of the sequence is 90 degrees to the right or left from the direction in which they faced at the beginning. As a result, the dancers face each of the four walls in turn at the end of four consecutive repetitions of the sequence, before returning to the original wall. The hustle line dance is an example of a four-wall dance because in the final figure they turn 90 degrees to the left to face a new wall. In some dances, they turn 270 degrees, a "three-quarter turn," to face the new wall.

Meanwhile Back At The Tables We Hear Strange Noises

Nope! We know what it is now! It's karoke at the table
"OK... I will dance and sing at the same time"
Did You Know? - Karaoke (カラオケ?, portmanteau of Japanese kara 空 "empty", and ōkesutora オーケストラ "orchestra") (play /ˌkæriːˈoʊkiː/; Japanese: [kaɽaoꜜke] ) is a form of interactive entertainment or video game in which amateur singers sing along with recorded music (a music video) using a microphone and public address system. The music is typically a well-known pop song minus the lead vocal. Lyrics are usually displayed on a video screen, along with a moving symbol, changing color, or music video images, to guide the singer. In some countries, a karaoke box is called a KTV. It is also a term used by recording engineers translated as "empty track" meaning there is no vocal track.
The concept of creating studio recordings that lack the lead vocal has been around for nearly as long as recording itself. Many artists, amateur and professional, perform in situations where a full band/orchestra is either logistically or financially impractical, so they use a "karaoke" recording; they are, however, the original artists. (This is not to be confused with "lip synching," in which a performer mimes to a previously produced studio recording with the lead vocal intact.)

Nick tickels the keyboard
Did You Know? - Nicholas John Peper has been a professional singer and pianist since the age of ten. While studying at the Julliard School of Music, he was a guest soloist with the NBC Opera Company and the Philadelphia Orchestra. During his early teens in New York, Nick had his own weekly radio show featuring live music from his quintet. After moving to California in 1967 he continued to be a featured performer for celebrity events in the Hollywood entertainment community.
In the early 1970's Nick worked with Roy Clark, Alan King, Perry Como, Bob Hope, Jack Benny and others while a member of the Doodletown Pipers. In the late 1970's three albums from his group 100% Whole Wheat received national radio air play and were reviewed in Billboard Magazine, all while remaining the house band for the Reubens Steak House chain. For the last decade Nick has been touring nationally with Triple Gold, consisting of the original lead singers from The Four Preps, The Diamonds, and The Association. Memorable events with Triple Gold include the Legend Of Rock & Roll concerts at The Greek Theatre and The Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon.
