The choreography of Keith Johnson is wind-swept and self-contained at the same time; that is, each individual body onstage seems to thrive on surges of internal desires, sometimes opening outward rapturously, more often driven to trace and retrace stylized, edgy patterns.

The class assignment in the bright, spare room of a West L.A. casting studio is simple: Turn to the stranger next to you. Then write down everything that comes to mind. "If somebody is ugly, write 'ugly.' You do not do anybody a favor if you are kind," Keith Johnson tells the students as they study one another and begin scribbling down adjectives. "If I look like a buttered popcorn-eating child molester, you know what? Cop shows need them every week!" Being stripped down to a first impression is both tantalizing and terrifying.

"You know parking's tough in L.A.," writes Keith Johnson, "when Parking Enforcement resorts to valet parking in order to get a spot" (see photo). Added Johnson: "Not sure if they were eating or citing." Chances are you haven't had to fill up your gas tank on Catalina Island lately, and you can count yourself lucky, as a snapshot from resident Bill Agresta illustrates (see photo). Worst bargain in L.A.

Taft 31, Chatsworth 18--The Toreadors completed a perfect regular season behind quarterback Nick DiPadova, who completed 13 of 24 passes for 205 yards and three touchdowns at Chatsworth. DiPadova threw scoring passes to Keith Johnson, Ryan Long and Alex Scheer. Taft (10-0, 7-0) played without wide receiver Damon Coleman, who was suspended along with tailback Marquis Brignac, reportedly for being involved in a fight. Larry Jones, replacing Brignac, gained 170 yards in 19 carries.

The sun has set on an almost deserted football field at Cleveland High, but the sparkle in Keith Johnson's eyes is enough to light up the entire San Fernando Valley. Days before his final hurrah as a high school athlete in the Valley Youth Conference all-star football game Saturday night at Birmingham High, Johnson is reminiscing about the four years he spent as a wide receiver and defensive back at Taft High and Montclair Prep.
