The Beginners Scene

Most of the peripherals are in town, Country, Line, Tango, Salsa, Swing, and they can get pretty technical on the Turning rocks, not to mention the Internationals. Wow, you should read some of the material on Turning Rocks. Gawd! Little of it for the real use of Social Dancers. But most social dancers know that they can move as they wish as long as they are in rhythm. So if they wish to move in any other degree off the forward or backward or sideways, they feel they can do it. Most social dancers use the KISS method. (keep it simple, stupid)

“Social Dancers know that is kind of fitting when you think about it. If we danced
and shared music with everyone, we'd be too busy enjoying life to start a war.”

And fortunately that on Oahu, the Ladies are marvels at following the leaders. In Latin dancing the Rock step and the break step may be used interchangeably but generally the leader starts (breaks) on the accented beat of the music wherever it may occur and the rest is gingerbread. Platinum Horseshoe blog is getting much activity from the search engines which is nice. Of course I am still experimenting. I have made too few requirements to get them into the search engines. Your comments is what will do it.

For now the easiest is to get on any other of our blogs and click the link. - Question: Is Social Dancing the same as Cultural Dancing? - There were at one time dozens of free local papers about places to dance. They even had web sites covering dance but now the blogs are taking over full force. One can find every kind of dance and style being done somewhere. On Oahu, we have been very fortunate, you wanna dance? Dis da place!

"Social Dancers accept that gossip may be carried by haters,
spread by fools and believed by idiots."
