Leading The Way

Stop and think about who and what you are.  As a social dancer, you are a human being and your greatest power is your will, or your ability to reason and make your own choices. It’s what commands all other aspects of your life. This power is the only thing that cannot be controlled or taken away from you by anyone, and it is what separates you from the other animals in this world. Don’t forget that you possess this power, and don’t squander it.

"Social dancers know that when they started moving towards that dream,
their feet developed the quality of dance.”


Wahiawa Ballroom Dance Club and Aiea Ballroom Dance Association both have anniversary dances this month. And these are two of the oldest dance clubs in Hawaii. Aiea Ballroom will be at the famous Palladium on Saturday, April 14th. Wahiawa Ballroom will be at the famous Helemano Plantation 808 on April 21st. Both places are going  to be jumping and I will be there to blog'em. Unfortunately, in my old age, I have developed fumbleitis and I cannot take photos like I use to.

Maile has been our number one photo contributor in emailing some very good photos of our fellow dancers for presentation in our blogs. All I can ask for is four or five photos of your favorite people at the dance. With a little two or three sentence commentary on the occasion, it can flesh out into a nice blog and the hits go through the roof. It is not my opinion, or her opinion, or his opinion, it is your opinion and that is what is so valuable. It's for our people and the availability for our reader/dancers is crucial. This is not Facebook, - they get 50 million photos daily.
