Randy Duncan's dances are the choreographic equivalent of what we used to call the melting pot. Part African-influenced jazz, part American modern and part classical ballet, they manage to meld disparate styles into a surprisingly coherent whole. And that's the fun of it, says Duncan, whose "A Tri-Fling" will have its Los Angeles premiere Friday, as part of the Joffrey Ballet's Music Center engagement, which begins Tuesday.

In the hourlong "Love in Four Acts," Chicago-based choreographers work with WTTW directors to create new dances on location in the Windy City. Varied and accessible, it's the kind of project that seems to flourish at PBS outlets everywhere except Los Angeles, where KCET-TV largely ignores the dance community and minimizes the dance programming available. The program starts gritty and streetwise and grows increasingly artificial, ending in a stylized ballet-studio.

Key cast changes in all four pieces brought novelty to the final repertory program of the Joffrey Ballet season on Saturday afternoon at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Indeed, both Randy Duncan's "A Tri-Fling" and Jiri Kylian's "Return to a Strange Land" boasted entirely new lineups except for one previously reviewed dancer in each.

Kelli Bass got choked up Monday when she thought about the hazards her Army Ranger buddies may be facing in Afghanistan. "One of them is like my brother," said Bass, who cuts hair at Ranger Joe's Barber Shop, which specializes in the Rangers' "high and tight" haircuts. "If something were to happen to him, I'd lose it." She and the other barbers at Ranger Joe's said they remember the two Rangers from Ft. Benning who were killed in a helicopter accident in Pakistan. Spc.

From the creation of the world to the state of the blessed souls in paradise, the "Prime Moves" program of modern dance Saturday at the Japan America Theatre ranged with hazardous ambition from the beginning to the end of time. The eight-part evening, consisting almost entirely of solos, did include enough depressing incidents--of childhood abuse, lamentation, cringing from nameless threats--to keep the program fixed on the human, all-too-human.

The New York Times initially spiked two columns that dissented from its editorial stand that Tiger Woods should boycott the Masters. Don Graham, the chairman of the Washington Post Co., which owns the Washington Post, was quoted by the Washingtonian magazine as telling sports editor George Solomon: "I have to remember to tell [Post sports columnist] Mike Wilbon not to disagree with our editorial policy on Iraq."

Celebrate the Spirit! That was the theme of the Orange County Centennial Ball on Saturday night at the Disneyland Hotel. And celebrate guests did--from the tulips of bubbly they tipped during the heady champagne reception to their final bites of dreamy orange mousse cake. What happened in between could fill a small history book.

Joe Bugel was promoted to head coach Thursday by the Oakland Raiders and immediately carried out perhaps the most essential task that comes with the job--lavishing praise on owner Al Davis. "I love Al Davis. This love affair has been going on for 30 years," said Bugel, who referred to Davis as "the Coach." Bugel, who was considered for the Raiders' head coaching job in 1995 and lost out to Mike White, has spent the last two seasons as Oakland's assistant coach for offense.

Sharing the same birthplace, jazz-dance origins and emphasis on polished technique, the 22-year-old Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and the 10-year-old River North Dance Company each gave exciting, well-attended Southland performances over the weekend--the former in Glendale, the latter in Long Beach.
