Aiea Ballroom

Received a nice email, from Deanie and she has just become the best Information Contributor for our blogs. I am physically impaired and do what I can but this information is just terrific. Our blogs do not do advertising but we do have a duty to provide as much up to date dance information to our fellow dancers as we can. They in turn can do as they damn well please and go wherever they want to go.

From Deanie Burgess, Aiea Balloom

School address: 99-600 Kulawea St., Aiea. Cost: FREE - just bring a small something to eat. And, of course, bring your dance shoes. Next class session [session runs 7 weeks] will start July 13. Dances will be Samba and Merengue. All classes are held on Thursdays at Aiea Intermediate School. Class registration IS NOT required if you come to the July social. Eating, dancing and enjoying yourself is! --You can view Aiea webpage: abda-hawaii.

"Somewhere Over The Rainbow" by Bruddah Iz

Snack served about 8:00 pm. The Swing Dance Club is predominately West Coast Swing. However, they do include Night Club 2 Step, Hustle, Country 2 Step, and some ballroom tempos. This is the only dance club on Oahu that offers "Westies" a lot of West Coast Swing! Other dance venues will play "some" West Coast Swing.

This coming Sunday [6/25] ALL MEN COME IN FREE FROM 6:00-9:00 PM. It's a belated Father's Day dance. Come on guys - lots of ladies to dance with.
