Opening The New Year

The first day of the year results confirm that Town Dancer will still be in front for a long time. For a very brief time when we were able to get all those photos from Maile, for the Wahiawa Ballroom Dance Club, Platinum Horseshoe went into first place. Not by much but in FIRST PLACE. So I am sure that with the next one plus one Guest Blogger, Platinum Horseshoe will take over first place permanently.

“Some social dancers do not like talk about dance? Dance to them
is not something to talk about. Dance is to dance.”  

Of course the basic principles of social media in dance blogs is still developing. No one is an expert simply because they have not tried everything. But the reader/dancers on Oahu are pretty akamai, they can learn like most of us. We need feedback from our fellow dancers. Anyone that is willing to share their knowledge with all of us. At present it is all dictated by the wheels up on top and let's face it they do have a lot of experience.

Not many social dancers on Oahu know what our blogs are about, and that perhaps, we are for the dancers and not for the elite. Many of the top groups have their own Web Sites and figure that they have "arrived." And we may concur that it is true. However we must make the effort to make these blogs a live and moving thing into Social Media. And unfortunately most of us do not know what it is. Feedback is going to be the answer. Never been done before? I know that.

"Social dancers try to understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it.

That is why they must enjoy music and dance and understand,
that all of that is a big part of life."
