The Waianae Coast

Since I have moved from Nanakuli to Pearl City, I have been neglecting the Waianae Coast. Much of it cannot be helped. I have to deal with people around me first and get acquainted. But I have to plan on something to help the people get some dancing on the West Coast of Oahu, they deserve it.

"It is possible that once we accept our limits, we may go beyond them."

Makaha has always had some kind of dancing, just not enough people there. The shopping center is still small and many people still prefer going to Waianae to shop.

Waianae is wide open and has been the center of the Coast for ages. The present spark for entertainment is at Tacos And More and they have Live Music every Wednesday and Thursday evening. Next step Latin Dancing? Oh Boy. Looks like they are going to be leading the way.

"Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are
something to do, something to love, and something to hope for."

There is a spark of dancing at Maili, also known as Sea Country. Many people with some dancing experience but finding dancing is too far them. They suggest that a nice Community Center on the best Beach Park on the Waianae Coast would be perfect. Another dream? Yes.

Further down is Lualualei, actually part of Nanakuli, there are some dancers there too. And most would be willing  to go all the way to the Waianae District Park. They have seen the most beautiful dance floor in the West Coast of Oahu, and that has never been used for Ballroom Dancing.

The top Hotels in Makaha and Ko'Olina are just too ritzy for most us, regular, run of the mill dancers. Most proposed business parks have been stopped by the Present Rail Party. And everyone up and down the coast realizes that they coulda been home in 20 minutes. But you gotta keep the country, country. This means much less money for schools, limited paved streets and sidewalks. And definitely no shoe stores. The tourists can drive by and say, "Oh, how quaint!"

"The truest expression of a our people is in our dance and in our music.
We should know that human bodies never lie."
