‘Dance’ fever

Guests kick up their heels at Col-Mandalay preem

Guests strapped on their dancing shoes for the premiere of Columbia Pictures/Mandalay Entertainment’s recital of love, “Dance With Me” Thursday night.

After the screening at Hollywood’s Galaxy Cinema, pic’s co-stars (and fellow songsters) Vanessa L.Williams and Chayanne cha-cha’d over to The Palace, where club favorites Johnny Polanco y Su Conjunto Amistad whipped the crowd into a salsa-flavored frenzy. Despite the rice-and-beans menu, partygoers remained light on their feet, high-stepping the night away. Williams, who attended with her children, did an elaborate showstopping number with equally limber friends, clearing the floor in an evening highlight. Stepping out were cast members Jane Krakowski, Beth Grant, “Ally McBeal’s” Gil Bellows, director/producer Randa Haines, scribe Daryl Matthews, producers Lauren C. Weissman and Shinya Egawa, and exec producer Ted Zachary. Notable hoofers Patrick Swayze and wife Lisa Nieme also attended along with a dressed-down RuPaul and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
