Line Dancing is In.

Wahiawa Ballroom Dance Club seems to be the leading club in Line dancing in West Oahu. Of course, they are fortunate to have Carol Kohagura doing such a terrific job teaching every Wednesday evening. Other social dance clubs and even Night Clubs may have one or two dances in the middle of the dance session sort of intermission like. And throughout West Oahu they seem to be getting more male dancers to join in moving to good music. The males are learning to feel free in moving by themselves without having to lead anyone.

You are not going to let one of them ruin your day."

Group dances such as line dancing are danced by groups of people simultaneously, as opposed to individuals dancing alone or individually, and as opposed to couples dancing together but independently of others dancing at the same time, if any. The dances are generally, but not always, coordinated or standardized in such a way that all the individuals in the group are dancing the same steps at the same time.

Alternatively, various groups within the larger group may be dancing different, but complementary, parts of the larger dance. An exception to this generalization must be pointed out where groups of individuals are dancing independently of each other, but with the purpose of creating a "group" feeling or experience, such as might accompany various forms of ritual dancing. For now we have accepted the current line dancing as a necessary part of the our social and cultural dance.

two steps backward, then side-step, side-step and turn around."
