What's Doin'

Central Valley dancing remains the puzzle because Wahiawa is holding up the Fort almost single handed with Wahiawa Ballroom Dance Club and with Dot's in Wahiawa.. There is some Salsa in Milllani but we don't know much about it. The hope is that there will be something in the Waikele or Waipio area, mow that the Pavilion has been cancelled to pay for the Rail Disaster.

"The casual conversational tone of a blog is what makes it particularly dangerous."

There is already some dance action in Whitmore Village, but it seems like they wish to keep it a private affair and we concur that they have the absolute right. So we have to seek and find those that are willing to share their information with their fellow dancers.. If they don't have a Web site, then they can surely use our help.

Then the North Shore has been long overdue. Doris tried to teach some kind of dancing when she lived in Waialua but went back to the Mainland some years back. And I believe they have some kind of line dancing in Haleiwa. This blog may eventually trip on some of these and that will get it going good. The prospects are beginning to look better. Not conclusive, just better. They had Salsa but we have not heard anymore on it.

Generally, most dancers just want to have some fun. moving to music with some resemblance of regularity. Very basic movements that a man finds easy to lead and a woman finds easy to follow. Each dancer dances a different half of the dance but that is the pleasure of it all when it comes together just right. That is also why fads find it hard to get into Cultural Dance. We can all learn how to do tricks but we also know that is not our kind of dancing, "that's show business,"

Our social dancing in West Oahu melds very nicely with the American Style of Dance. Now Street dance, more formally known as vernacular dance, is an umbrella term used to describe dance styles that have evolved outside of dance studios in any available open space such as streets, dance parties, block parties, parks, cafeterias, and nightclubs. Good basic dancers here.

Most are not interested in getting into any type of International competitions with any kind of exactness. These dances generally evolve out of urban and suburban spaces in some form of underground culture/region as in all of Hawaii. They are a part of the vernacular culture of that geographical area. This is as if they were folk dances, although since the advent of the internet, the dances seem to be shared among people with the same musical interest island wide. Fifty years ago the Double Blues were danced throughout the Islands.

We are getting some good opinions in these blogs. Yours are just as important
and unique. Give it a whirl, many of us will appreciate it.
