ATLANTA (CNN) -- Wondering when Riverdance is coming to your town? Or maybe you'd like to learn the steps to the Macarena? It's all as close as your PC.

The ballet's the thing

American ballet site

The American Ballet Theatre Internet site tells all about the classical dance company -- from biographies of the dancers, to information on composers, to a look at the history of the company.

Also on site are synopses of current ballets, performance dates around the company, and a very nice photo gallery with images of dancers in a variety of roles.

Irish jigs and reels

Riverdance site

Irish dance is in the middle of a new explosion of popularity, thanks in part to the traveling show Riverdance. The show's Web site gives the schedule for performances in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

The site explores the Riverdance phenomenon and the people behind it and includes downloadable video clips.

Macarena: the dance and the spin-offs

Of course, no medium of popular culture would be complete without the Macarena. There is one site devoted to the craze, and so many tidbits all over the Web it would be impossible to list them here.

Macarena site

But on the main site, there's virtual Macarena lessons from a variety of computerized figures.

But if you'd rather eat than dance, try the "Hey Macaroni" screensaver with lyrics like "People say I'm better than a bowl of fried bologna."movie icon (289K/7 sec. QuickTime movie)
