Blogging Along

We still need reader/dancers that are willing to share a few happy dance moments in time and perhaps a couple photos. Our fellow reader/dancers of this blog would be the same friends, neighbors, relatives and fellow dancers. There are those that have their own reasons for not sharing and we must respect, among them is the custom of advertising in ordinary media in the last century.  I can see that in our blog and realize that some bloggers can get the hits going into the stratosphere.

“Social dancers believe that dancing may be their heartbeat,
their soul, their true happiness.”

One good thing we are realizing is that the Big Band era was over 40 years ago then the Big Ballroom era soon followed. We, as social dancers are finding dance floors of less than 1000 square feet very comfortable for a group of 100 friends or so. In the photos we get just about everyone. Not the same with the big dances. Then only the big shots and the terrific exhibitions and we see them over and over again. Our blogs are different than that.

Then we are spreading out. The Moanalua Corridor has been pretty well screwed up the Rail Catastrophe But Kapolei and beyond up the Waianae Coast looks good. The North Shore is showing good signs. The Central Valley has always been solid with Wahiawa Ballroom Dance Club and Dot's in Wahiawa. Now Mililani has Just Tacos with good music. And Waipio is not far behind in the planning, - a perfect spot.

smile, move on, and do nothing."
