Slow Moving

No feedback from Kapiolani Ballroom Dancers so all we can say is I tried. So we have to find more action in the Moanalua Corridor to write about. We need at least four information contributors. That would send the hits throught the roof. As it is now, they are staying under the 30 average hits per day. At one time they were close to seventy.

"Game changing innovations are few and far between. They are usually
simple concepts to describe but when they arrive it takes time to fully
realize their importance and impact. Television was a game-changer,
mobile phones were a game-changer, and blogging is also one."

We try and we try and we try. But some dance clubs are just not interested or they are already covered with all the public relations that they need. So I think we should leave well enough alone. Perhaps later. I have two folders. One marked "Mas Tarde" which means later in Spanish. Then I have another folder that reads, "Mucho Mas tarde," I am very very busy with six blogs and working on getting one of them independent.

Footwork: This refers to the rise and fall of the feet, indicating which part of the foot is to be contact with the floor on each step or part step; i.e. ball, heel, inside of foot etc. Very important in the dances which are "to be seen," and specially those to be judged. That is a very good reason.

This is of little importance in the Culteral dancing that we do for pure enjoyment. The body moves to the music first and the feet land in the most comfortable and the most naturally balanced position. If you have the rhythm, that's all you need. And the styling in Cultural dances differs greatly among this large group.

Upcoming Town blog, getting the hits.


Regarding the worry that some of these very good dancers are watching you and are judging and critical, I have bad news and I have good news:

1) The bad news is that unless you're a really super dancer, they're not watching you. You're being ignored.

2) The good news is that unless you're a really super dancer, they're not watching you. You're being ignored.

3) And if you are a superdancer, and they're watching you with a frown on their faces, it's probably because they envy you, and also they're hard at work trying to steal your material.
