Phase Out Sure

Well, the reader/dancers have spoken. Many don't even know that they can still convey information by not doing anything. Anyone out there interested? There you are, not a sound. Proof enough, so I can plan on phasing this blog out too

"I read blogs every day, for all sorts of reasons, but I turn to blogs especially when I want to hear alternative viewpoints." ~Jim Buckmaster

Not really that bad, we have two blogs in town doing a great job. Town Dancer and Oahu And Beyond. And we will have two blogs in the West. Oahu - West will probably be the main one because Central Valley section is relatively new for dancing. And Central Valley will reach to the North Shore. That will take some time. We even got an information contributor from Pupukea.

  
All the numbers seem to point to an increase in "Social" dancers. The others are from the "to be seen" factions such as the Competition, Exhibition, Caberet and Acrobatic types. The social dancer has been dancing in District Parks, Community Centers, Malls, School Cafeterias and now they are now finding the Night Club scene very enjoyable and that will be expanding into the night clubs in the West.


Some of the Club Dancers are taking lessons at the dance clubs to polish up their movements so the amalgamation is already ongoing.  The Club Dancers will find themselves also attending dances at District Parks etc. The whole enchilada will evolve into one solid group and they will comprise over 80% of the dancers on this Island.


The other twenty percent will be the "to be seen" categories and the peripherals, Line, Salsa, Swing, Tango and whatever else comes up.  And there will be some standardization of the movements to facilitate the interchange of dance partners in any socially accepted dance. And of course "Fusion."

The elimination of many will come about naturally. Bolero, Paso Doble, Quickstep and the Viennese Waltz simply because there is no need. They will be relegated to the exhibition category. But the entire enchilada is looking hot.
