John Travolta and Deney Terrio He's famous, and a home town man. I'm talk- ing about the popular Deney Terrio who will be performing at the Wonderland Ballroom in Re- vere on October 22 "d with his "Deney Terrio Dance Party." Terrio was born in Revere, on Henry Street. He began his career in dance with Dick Clark's "Rock & Roll" in 1973. While performing at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas the famous Elvis Presley was in the audience. Clark told the atrdience not to bother Elvis Presley, "who was there to watch the show." But instead, Elvis stood up, took the microphone and said "Bother me." That inspired Terrio to continue his career, believing show biz was the right business for him. DENEY TERRIO by Marie Matarese "Saturday Night Fever" was looking for a cho- reographer shortly after and Terrio was asked to meet with Bob Lamond, manager for John Travolta to audition at Paramount Studios. Para- mount was so impressed with Terrio, they de- scribed his work as "superb" and he was hired. His next stop was Hollywood to start rehearsals for the movie "Saturday Night Fever" in 1977. Five months into production girls lined up to dance with Travolta, who was on his way to becoming a big star. The success of the movie led Terrio to team up with Merv Griffin to host the hit TV show "Dance Fever." The "Deney Terrio Dance Party," is expected to draw mega crowds at Wonderland Ballroom. Terrio also performed at Eastie Pride Day in 1998 where he met his manager Dave Oriola that led to their future business relationship. Terrio through Oriola Management formed the Deney Terrio Dance Party. Terrio has had many endorsements including a Time Life Music infomercial slated for release in 2012. Deney will also make his off Broadway debut choreograph- ing the play "3C" in New York City in the spring of 2012. Because of Terrio's affiliation with John Travola's movie "Saturday Night Fever," the British Broadcasting Corp, BBC will be coming to Boston .to interview Deney for an upcoming documentary about Disco. Deney can also be heard hosting his popular disco radio show ' 70s on Seven on Sirus XM "every Saturday night 9:00 p.m.-3:00 a.m. Terrio said, "it feels great to come back to Boston to perform, eat at one of my favorite restaurants, Nicky Varano's "Strega," and see all my old friends."

Free CollegelCredit Courses in East Boston: Become a Certified Nursing Assistant/ At a time when many East Boston residents are in need of relief from unemployment and lack of opportunity, a new pro- gram offers young Boston resi- dents free certification and meaningful career growth. Through a grant from the Mayor's Office of Jobs and Com- munity Services, the Education and Training Institute of the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center (EBNHC) is proud to announce a program to train young people to become certi- fied nursing assistants (CNAs). The project is a collaboration between EBNHC, Maverick Landing Community Services, and Bunker Hill Community College. The free program begins in November with three coUege- credit courses. In January, stu- dents will begin three prepara- tory courses needed to take the state exam to become a certified nursing assistant. Other features of the grant include: tutoring, a monthly stipend, case-management sup- port, and a T-Pass for the spring semester. To qualify for this exceptional opportunity, a student must be between the ages 17 and 21, have earned a high school diploma or GED, live in East Boston or any other neighbor- hood of the City of Boston, and have an interest in health care. "This grant from the Mayor's Office enables EBNHC to sup- port members of the East Bos- ton community in a new and exciting way," said EBNHC CEO Jack Cradock. "In addition to providing healthcare to young East Boston residents, EBNHC is facilitating their access to the education they need to become new members of the healthcare provider community. This is a fabulous opportum'ty on many levels." Maverick Landing Community Services supports the East Bos- ton area through social services, such as job training, job place- ment assistance, and education. Jude James, Executive Director, is pleased to be able to offer her clients this new CNA program, and looks forward to support- ing their completion of CNA coursework. "The staff of Maverick Land- ing is committed to ensuring the success of program participants by providing case management services. Whether a young per- son needs access to food stamps, mental health counsel- ing, tutoring, health care, childcare, or some other service, our role is to work with each participant on an ongoing basis to identify potential barriers to academic success early in the process. By doing so we hope to problem-solve with participants so that by next spring they can look back and say 'I did it.'"
