Updating

This blog seems to still have most of its readers from the Exhibition and Competition styles of dancing, from the days when Calvin was blogging and the hits were going through the roof. They have come down quite a bit with all the competition.  Platinum Horseshoe is catching up with the influence of Wahiawa Ballroom Dance Club. And I believe that the readers are making the decisions with the hit counter. Therefore, with just one regular guest blogger in this blog that leans toward International, this blog could look forward to staying up on top.

The probability is that Town Dancer could run up the average hits per day and I have much to do elsewhere.The Dance Clubs in town are all doing very well and realizing that the days of the Big Ballrooms are over. There are other places where they can enjoy the dance and the Night Clubs on Oahu are doing a bang up business. The entire social dance scene for Oahu looks pretty good. And many dancers are realizing that they can dance to the "sound" of the music or to the "beat" of the music. For the sound you cannot beat the oldies but goodies. For the beat there millions of good songs coming out every day.

Fortunately we have some of the best DJs and some of the best bands in the Pacific, right here on Oahu. Marketing, advertising and promotion still rely on ideas and only humans have those. That is why we must have our fellow reader/dancers contribute their ideas for these blogs now and then. We must accept constructive criticism and we will all learn the big difference from "destructive" criticism. We will have none of this lying gossiping crap that has been going on for years. Everything will be up front and we will all be the better for it.

having a good time. And hey, people even danced in Bible days.”
