GettingThere

I cannot get around very easily any more but I try to get dance information to share with the readers. Of course much of the information is known already by the aficionados. So my contribution may just add to what they have already. And the Palladium is still the center of Ballroom Dancing in Hawaii. Most of the dancing there is very well covered and they do not need any assistance from this blog. No hu hu, just understanding. These places for dance information are Dance Fever Oahu and Frank's two blogs which do an excellent job for the entire dance community.

"Social dancers know that when a dance becomes universal it is real and honest. It
transcends every difference that we have and reminds us we are one human family."


Meanwhile there is an awful lot of dancing outside of the Palladium. I don't hear of dancing in Malls and Gas Stations anymore but that is OK. Many of the social clubs have classes in school cafeterias as they always have. There are also some in Community Centers and District Parks. Nothing wrong with that. Friends, social interaction, music and learning dance steps make a very interesting evening. And of course there are the dance studios.

Then in Honolulu, you can dance socially any night of the week somewhere. Most places do their best business on Thursday through Sunday. and the rest of the days are special. Then you have your specialty dances which may or may not be in a night club. Of the specialties, Bachata and Salsa are the biggest groups in Night Clubs and the others are Country Dancing in Waikiki and other specialties such as Line Dancing and Argentine Tango. And all them could have something here to enhance their business.
