The social dance clubs in town are doing just fine. There have been regular adjustments and the long standing top five are no longer the same.

Salsa and Bachata are doing quite well in Night Clubs and even in some of the Dance Studios which is good for the Studios and the dancers. In Honolulu the dance studios are very slowly phasing into the Night Club business on weekends. It's a natural and the rest of the week can be very comfortable with dance lessons. And some people are now inquiring about Fred Astaire studios.

The outskirts of Honolulu are still slow, but the interest is increasing due to the horrible traffic situation in Honolulu. On Saturday night it can be bumper to bumper in Waikiki and it can take 20 minutes just to get out of the parking area. There will be places to have a ball closer to home and you can be home in 20 minutes.
