Show promoter Paul “Mr Flavours” Johnson says a third Where It's At reunion is in the works, following enthusiastic response to the August 25 show at Magnolia Ballroom in Plantation, Florida.

According to Johnson, things are “in the planning stages, city and venue to be announced soon”.

Last year's dance was also held in South Florida.

This year saw a number of the dancers who made Where It's At one of the Jamaica Broadcasting Corporation's (JBC) most popular television shows, hitting the dancefloor.

They included Dee Bennett-Linton, Pauline Richards, Maxwell “Maxi Clan” Tracey, Patrick Brown and Noel Jones. Guest performers were Karen Millwood and Paul Brown.

Actor Paul Campbell of Dancehall Queen and Third World Cop fame was among the attendees.

“Despite the time constraints on our new venue, we are indeed happy with our efforts for this year's event. The ambience was to die for and our guests made a concerted effort to step up their game with their costumes,” Johnson said.

Where It's At first aired on the JBC in 1972. It had a similar format to the American show, Soul Train, which debuted one year earlier.

It highlighted the 'hottest' songs and artistes, complemented by dancers and groups showing off their latest moves. Elaine Wint, Alphonso Walker and Baldwin Howe were the main hosts during Where It's At's 12-year run.
