Making Their Move

When successful local performers try to take their careers to another level, Spark asks, "Do they have what it takes?"

Chanticleer's Matt Alber harkens back to his Midwestern roots as he tries to make it into the big time as a country and western star.

Next, they've been making music together for decades, but now the members of the Greek band Kymata want to move beyond wedding gigs to create their own unique fusion of musical styles. A fixture in the Greek community, the band takes a step back from performing to begin recording.

Then have the last dance with ambitious young ballroom dancers as they go head to head at the Bay Area's first Ballroom Blitz Junior Dance Sport Championship.
