Julie McDonald believes in hoofers' rights. As in the two-legged variety. A former dancer, McDonald became L. A.'s first dance agent in 1985. Now she is one of the leaders in efforts to form the first union for choreographers working in film, TV and commercials. "Actors, stuntmen, directors, cinematographers and art directors all have a union," she says. "Choreographers are the only group not unionized and it's going to change in the next year."

After a 1988 Olympic Games in which only two Americans, Matt Biondi and Janet Evans, won individual gold medals in swimming, the United States is expected to fare better at the XXV Olympics in Barcelona. It will be interesting to see if the changes made by the governing body of the sport, U.S. Swimming Inc., including scheduling the U.S. Olympic trials four months before the Games instead of six weeks and separating the men's and women's teams, has a positive effect.

It's a far cry from the MGM musicals of the '40s or those over-the-top MTV dance videos. But choreography is nonetheless two-stepping its way back onto the silver screen. In 1993 alone, 43 movies had choreographed segments, says dance agent Julie McDonald of Joseph, Heldfond & Rix Inc., who represents many of the top choreographers on both coasts. This year, dance impresarios are putting their imprint on films such as "Casper," "The Flintstones," "The Mask" and "To Wong Fu" to name a few.

She came here to win three events, and she did just that: --She won the 400-meter individual medley on the first day of competition. --She lowered her own world record in winning the 400-meter freestyle.

Hoping for at least one world record Friday to give Goodwill Games II credibility as a world-class athletic competition on its opening day, organizers were rewarded for their blood, sweat and deficit-spending with three. Because all three records came in the same race at the King County Aquatics Center, the impact was somewhat limited. But it was one great race. Mike Barrowman, a University of Michigan senior from Potomac, Md., won the 200-meter breaststroke in 2:11.
