The New 2021 Clubs?

It won't be too bad, and if we all accept, we will be safer and our fellow dancers will be safer too. And we will do it until we get the all clear, perhaps by year's end. Married couples, people living together or in a serious relationship accepted. Masks will be worn and temperatures of the staff and students will be taken as soon as they enter the building and before they start dancing. Every person must complete a questionnaire to ensure they’re safe to dance. We don't have lobbies so everyone waits outside. The staff and students will be required to wash their hands before and after each lesson.

“Social dancers never lose hope. They believe that storms
make people stronger and never last forever.”
 
 
Additional hand washing stations with touch-free faucets and soap dispensers may be set up. Posted informative signs throughout to remind the staff and students to follow the safety protocols. We will be observing social distancing by spreading out students and their teachers throughout to ensure everyone is at least 6 feet away (and in another room entirely when possible) from other dancers. We must minimize unnecessary touch and personal contact while teaching and dancing.

"Walk With Me Through Paradise" by Melveen Leed


We will have a cleaning and disinfecting schedule. The hall will be thoroughly cleaned throughout the day and common touch points are cleaned at least every 45 minutes. We must eliminated hugs and handshake greetings. Just give a friendly wave hello and good-bye Whether you want to dance at home or in our sanitized dance rooms, we should be here to keep each other safe. We may avoid admitting Trumpanzees. Then too if you want to be safer yet, there will be Zoom.

Blogging in Process

The set up on my Blogs is changing. I had reduced the blogs down to five at the beginning of this year. Then a couple weeks ago I deleted Oahu Dancers and opened it as a Group in my Facebook Time Line and it is not doing very well. No Dancing. Now for the coming year I have changed Dance and Live to a Poster blog, with an opening date of January 1st and renamed "The Bill Board." That leaves me with Town Dancer, Social Dance Oahu and Dancing Nights for blogging. And since my time is getting more limited I plan to get rid of my best one. Town Dancer blog.

“Social dancers know that life's trials will test us, and shape us,
but may even change us for the better.”


I have too many "Friends" in my Facebook Timeline, so the Oahu Dancers Group should be increasing very soon. It is much easier for outsiders to get in though I do not know how it is done. At any rate, we have space available for anyone to share their dance moments with our fellow dancers. Photos seem to get more interest than anything else. So I try to mix it up. We have so few that is is better to have two people instead of just one. Or three may be better than two. Anyway the photographer will decide.

"Fly Me To The Moon" by Jimmy Borges


The Bill Boards on the Mainland seem to be doing good, but I don't really know. But I am willing to try it here in Hawaii, though I know it has never been done before. On the Mainland the people pay for the their posters. But, my plan is to help any dance organization on Oahu. No payment is necessary, Just certain requirements. Only two sizes permitted, and if you like I can make sample for free as a trial. You can change it anytime you wish. Take a look see and anyone can decide.

but it with their heart that they dance."

Biden Is In

In the book, Animal Farm by George Orwell, after the pigs have taken over and run things their way for the good of everybody. it seem to be just like up to the time of Obama. Then something went wrong and Trump and friends took over. At the end of the story, it mentions a sign that had been put up at the beginning of the "revolution." It had said, "We are all equal." And someone (I think it was Barr) had written underneath, "But some of us are more equal than others." I hope we are now starting a new book, a much better one for the people.

“Social dancers know how fortunate we are who still

have hope that we shall dance again."

President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration events are likely to look different from past years in order to prevent the spread of the Trump Pandemic. The inauguration is scheduled to take place amid a surge of infections across the country. The change-up to the quadrennial tradition is an illustration of Biden’s dramatically different approach to containing the virus from that taken by Trump. It is likely to feature “scaled down versions of the existing traditions” and may borrow from the techniques that were used to put on the virtual Democratic National Convention over the summer.

"Take Me Home, Country Roads" by Bruddah Iz


Biden's approach to tackling the Trump Pandemic is that it is the most immediate and obvious challenge facing the country. He intends to provide free testing for all and hire 100,000 people to set up a national contact-tracing program. He says he wants to establish at least 10 testing centers in every state, call upon federal agencies to deploy resources and give firmer national guidance though federal experts. He says all governors should mandate wearing masks.Voters suspicious of federal authority will see this as overreach, but it lies very much in line with Mr Biden's and Democrats' general view on the role government should play. We shall overcome.

Slow Going

On Oahu we have accepted that our ability to dance together has disappeared overnight, This has been a stress for us social dancers not being able to socialize and that’s really hard. So should dancing with strangers come back? Hell, yes. As to when we will feel safe again, there’s a hopeful precedent in what happened a few years after the 1918 flu pandemic. We just have to be patient, for our social-dance scene to evolve, we can’t be first out of the gate. But it’s not "no dancing" — just "not yet" for social dancing.

“Most social dancers believe that if you lose hope, somehow
you lose the vitality that keeps you moving," 
 

Unfortunately, the Trumpanzees have been pretty hard in Hawaii and three months ago we were coming out of it. Then they opened too soon and too much. Hawaii is still in bad shape. They do not believe in masks or social distance. Trump Rallies have no recognition of masks or social distance at all. We don't know too much either. Six feet is fine but not engraved on stone. Ten feet is better than six feet, and 20 feet is better than 10. Most people can see the reason easily. Trumpanzees cannot.

The Pandemic in Hawaii

The Trump Pandemic has revealed deep cracks in Hawaii’s government and social system. Many of us are having a better understanding of how we came to be in the situation we’re in now, We must put Hawaii’s experience in perspective and provided some thoughts for the future. It’s been six months since Hawaii’s first stay-at-home order went into effect, barring residents from most public spaces and shuttering thousands of businesses in an attempt to stop the Trump Pandemic from spreading across the islands. Now the dance community on Oahu is waiting to emerge from a second stay-at-home order, with many wondering what there is to show for months of personal sacrifice.

"Social Dancers know that life is an extraordinary adventure and they fully understand that they can only do this - one time around."

Hawaii had major advantages aiding its pandemic response: An ocean to help seal its borders more tightly than any other state seeking to quarantine travelers. A population somewhat more likely to don masks than residents on the mainland unfamiliar with the custom or unwilling to give up personal comfort in the name of safety. The support of residents, a majority of whom said they were willing to bear extreme financial burdens in order to keep the state safe. And we had time: Washington state saw its first fatality from the Trump Pandemic on Feb. 29. Hawaii didn’t lose a resident to the disease until April 1. Still, six months into the pandemic, the fight against the virus has battered Hawaii’s economy and taken a serious toll on the mental health of residents.

"Somewhere Over The Rainbow" by Bruddah Iz


Then we let the tourist in and opened the schools. As beleaguered parents braced for the second month of virtual classes, businesses continue to lay off employees and federal benefits dry up, the state is facing perhaps its biggest challenge yet: restarting tourism safely when just relaxing restrictions for residents was enough to send cases skyrocketing and force the state back into lockdown. We now have 236 deaths in Hawaii. We are in bad shape but we sort of have a another chance to get it right. Perhaps we can dance by the end of the year? Testing, masks and social distance. This is not a Trump Rally.

"Social Dancers believe that the future belongs to those
who believe in the beauty of their dreams."

from Lily Diamond - Part One.

Lily Diamond in Facebook, Re: TOURISTS COMING TO HAWAII...LONG READ BUT TOTALLY RIGHT ON THE MONEY!

I think every Hawaii bound traveler should read it before stepping off the plane. “AN OPEN LETTER to malahini (visitors) arriving in Hawaiʻi in the wake, and midst, of the pandemic: A few requests as the state opens up today. Pass it on to a traveler near you. Aloha nā malahini (hello visitors),
I imagine you may read this as a gentle, humid breeze kisses your cheek, the scent of salt and plumeria mellowing the stale plane air you’ve been breathing for hours. I imagine you arriving with that open-hearted excitement born of travel, for even if you’ve been to these islands before, they’ve been closed to visitors for most of 2020.

“Social dancers think that despair suggests we are in total control and 
know what is coming. We don't surrender to events with hope.”

 
Like many of you in this era of converging crises, many people in Hawaiʻi have been in a state of pragmatic and spiritual unknown, of freefall, a time of total and complete redefinition. Obviously, I cannot write about the land or the people of Hawaiʻi as a monolith—to do so would be absurd, especially as a settler here. Though I have lived here for most of my life since the age of 2, I am keenly aware that I live on illegally occupied land.  Yet part of the mandate I take seriously as a citizen of Hawaiʻi, as a steward of this land, necessitates that I speak up in order to protect that land. After all, Hawaiʻi's state motto is ua mau ke ea o ka ʻāina i ka pono:

"The Music Of Hawaii" by Melveen Leed

"May the life of the ʻāina (land) be perpetuated in righteousness." It is up to us, all of us, to ensure that this ʻāina—and its people, its kūpuna (ancestors), its kānaka maoli (native Hawaiians)—are protected, revered, and honored. And so, over the past six months, Hawaiʻi has wondered if there might be a new way forward, a way to reimagine an industry that has become fundamentally extractive and exploitative, an industry built on imperialism, essentialism, and appropriation, an industry that serves the consumer while desecrating the consumed. Yes, I’m talking about tourism. Hawaiʻi’s economy is severely dependent on tourism, which means our time in COVID lockdown  left the state with one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. Many businesses shuttered. Families suffered. Homelessness skyrocketed. If we don’t return to tourism—one expression of the abusive relationship the state has been in with its colonizer for over two centuries—the economy as we know it is doomed.

Humbly,
A fellow malahini on our one earth”

Recapped

Our modern culture on Oahu in this century had restricted itself somewhat. Perhaps because of our addiction to technology and some types of recreation. Touch and face time conversations were at a low level. We have now been realizing that social dance can bring with it a gem of an opportunity to "socialize." Having a dance partner or dancing in a group allows for communication and shared passions which in turn have resulted in rewarding relationships.

"Social dancers inhale hope with every breath."
 

Regrettably, our politics is affecting our social life too. We have been polarized by the Trump Pandemic. Signified by testing, masks and social distance. The Trumpanzees do not believe in testing, masks or have any respect for social distance. They are more likely to be infected than our regular residents and there is the clash. We do not want them around us and we do not want to be around them. For us it is matter of life and death. They don't give a damn.

"Waikiki" by Amy Hanaialii 
 
New permission, Wuhan, China. Dancing in the Street.

Testing is a must, we have to find out, yes or no. Simple to make the proper follow up. It is accepted world wide that masks are 96%, 97% effective against the Pandemic. Not perfect but way ahead of zero per cent. Social distance of six feet is 99% effective. Again, not perfect but way ahead of zero per cent effective. The entire world is adjusting and perhaps the time will come when we will dance again.

the wrong side of the door."

The Last?

We have come a long ways. From just jiggling to a beat. 8000 years ago, to the dancing we do today. Somewhere along the line all over the earth, these savages learn to accent one count and the other was less. The Two Count measure. Then some dummies went more and developed the three count, accenting the one. Some may have gone to six counts but that is hazy. And they could go forward, walking, or backward or sideways. They could even turn to the left or right. So when music began they could have a little more fun moving to the music in many ways. 

"Somewhere Over The Rainbow" by Bruddah Iz

At any rate, this blog will be the last for a while and wait for the Trump Pandemic to be over. There is possibility of January the first and we can start the year of right. I am now 95 and as I approach the ending chapter of life I have met two kinds of people. The ones that have built me up, (bless their souls) and the ones who tried to tear me down. But in the end, I want to thank them both.

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God,
which is why we call it the present.”

Moving Very Slowly

The Blogs are staying pretty stable with few average hits per day. There are bunches of hits a couple times per month from the search engines which keep these blogs a float. I have cut down to a blog every other day. And it may go to a blog every two days, depending on the feedback. Just one or two information contributors would do wonders. Photos at this moment are the most important part of our feedback. Oahu Dancer blog will have it's last posting for a while on this coming Sunday. Hopefully we can start the new year with it again.
 
Blogs are whatever we make them. Exact definitions of a "blog" is a fool's errand.
 

Dancing on the Internet for us, seems to be mostly in Facebook, in two groups. Dance Blogs and Dancers. And many of the reader/dancers read in both group posts. Most comes in the "to whom it may concern" category but it does get quite friendly because most of the readers know each other. And then, lucky for us, we are beginning to get some photos of our fellow dancers. Old pictures but remembrances of the "Good Times." So we have a lot reader/dancers on Oahu and we can sure share photos and dance information to keep us going until we can dance again.

The announcement of a coming function is waiting but it may not be until Thanksgiving. Some thing will be planned. It will be restricted to a few people if we have to permit 50 square feet per person. But some already recognize that two people that live together can count as one. Masks, of course and temperatures taken not to exceed 104 degrees and a tube of hand sanitizer for each person. Getting complicated yes, we wont be out of it for awhile. But the real meat and potatoes for blogging is the description of what happened, after the fact, at the function together with photos and we spread the word.

Sunday, One More?

We are learning on Oahu to live with the Trump Pandemic. We are all aware that Trumpanzees do not believe in testing, wearing masks or respecting social distance. If they want to disrespect each other, they have "rights." The stats are there and they are more likely to be contaminated than ordinary humans. Don't argue with them, it is useless. Keep away from them. Ten feet, mo bettah. Don't allow any of them on your property.

 An oldie but goodie: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”

In dancing we are making some progress. We believe that two people that live together can sit together and dance together with safety. If they wear masks and respect social dance it is not so bad. They protect themselves and respect their fellow dancers. Temperature taking on entrance is accepted and hand sanitizer is furnished by the dance group. Now the problem of how many people can be permitted in a room? Recommended no less than thirty six square feet of room space per person. Bathrooms are still a problem.

 "Tiny Bubbles" by Don Ho

Financially, the hardest hit are the Dance Studios and on Oahu we have been lucky that most of our studios have existed to help create good dancers and not just bleed you for whatever they can get. So all of us are willing to help. And some of the local dance clubs are making plans for next month. No hand shakes or fist touching necessary,  Maybe a Halloween Dance?

Around the sun.

Yesterday I completed my 95th trip around the sun on this Space Ship Earth. I have been very lucky. The Tragedy is for those have died so young and did not have the joy of a few more years of life. Then the loss to their loved one too. When we get to my age, we can understand that we have had our time in the sun and we do not have any complaints. Successful aging is to be useful, responsible and productive. Let's get on with the business at hand.


Death is a part of life for many of the older people who often say they are taking each day as it comes and not worrying too much about tomorrow. It is only day-from-day when you get into your nineties. Some older people are more desperate in their desire to reach the end. I signed the paper not to keep me alive if there is little hope. Let me go. In my life, I have fallen and I have risen and it happens to many, I have made mistakes but I live and learn. I've been hurt, but I'm alive, I'm human and I'm not perfect, but I'm thankful.

I want to thank everyone who wished me Happy Birthday on Twitter and Facebook.

Happy Dancing Everyone.

Swing Dance in Hawaii

Obviously, there’s been a swing craze in this century. How does this compare, or does it compare to the original swing craze? At this time the enthusiasm is still there in spite of the Trump Pandemic. It’s not quite the same as the enthusiasm for the dance as when I was coming up because it was something new at the time. And now, at this period, it’s something new to many of these youngsters. It’s just that it’s a different environment altogether. When we were coming up, we danced to live music all the time.

“Social dancers know that every dawn is born
with its own unique hopes!


There weren’t many tapes and CD’s and all that stuff. We didn’t even know what a disc jockey was. If we went to somebody’s house, there was someone playing a piano, or some kind of instrument for the rhythm for us to dance to. If we went to a ballroom… it was unheard of if they just had tapes. So it was always live music, a live band. And by us being able to dance to live music, to musicians, we were able to feed off the music that they gave out and they were able to feed off our energy. This may be a different century.

"Hukilau Song" by Amy Gilliom


So it was an interchange between the dancers and the music and that’s the difference that we cannot see now. Most of the time today, it’s DJs. You can only identify with the music that’s coming over the loudspeaker. Back then we could listen to a record, and we could say, "Oh, that’s Harry James, that’s Gene Krupa, that’s Benny Goodman!" We knew who was playing what, because we listened to these guys impressions so much, we knew how they sounded; we knew what they did. Now you listen to music coming from the CDs and the tapes and somebody has to tell you who the person is that’s playing. We will adjust.

"Social dancers know that hope is not a strategy.
we have to do something."

Street Dancers?

"What do we do to this dance?"
By Kay Gilley, Turtle Bay
A piece of music will occasionally come on and even the most experienced dancers look at each other and say, "What do we do to this.?" When that happens, one of my favorite partners and I look for each other because I know that he will be innovative interpreting the music. He knows that I am OK just following what he does. If the music is more flowing and romantic in nature, he may incorporate steps from bolero, waltz and nightclub two step ... and even make up a few. If it is faster and jazzy, we have done cha-cha-cha, hustle, East and West Coast swing and even merengue in a single dance, switching back and forth as he interprets the music.

“Social dancers may believe that hope is the power of being cheerful
in circumstances that we think may be desperate.”


I think it is a great sport, and it definitely invites me to use my best following skills. Yes, this is extremely difficult for the Rootzi-Tootzis to comprehend. It may even be considered blasphemy. We may eventually have separate dance floors. We have many variations of dance on our cultural dance floors. And fortunately all these people are coming forward with a little pride. They are dancing just for fun, and you can judge them if you will, but the judging doesn't count for much in this group. For they were good street dancers that have become good social dancers.

"Tiny Bubbles" by Don Ho


As a result of fewer Pandemic tests counted over the Labor Day holiday, the Hawaii Department of Health today reported double digits in new cases — the first time in more than a month after triple digit increases for most of August and early September. The state reported 45 cases on Aug. 2 and a record high of 355 cases on Aug. 13. Health officials today recorded two new coronavirus - related deaths and 66 new infections, bringing the statewide totals since the beginning of the pandemic to 88 fatalities and 10,025 cases. We may be coming out of again. The schools in question.

Sunday Two

This is the second edition of the Sunday Dance Blog and it is moving slowly.

Looking over the dance Web sites on the Mainland and in Hawaii, I find them all at a stand still. Many have removed their counters simply because there is not much to count. I have all my five blogs plus two others with counters on my daily stats and it is very plain, "Feedback" to share with our readers equals hits. We are able to spread the available knowledge around. So there it is and when we get to do some dancing they will make all the difference. You got something share with our readers email it in and I will post it to the blog of your choice.

"Remember this Billionaires: We be many and you are few.
You need us more than we need you."

First most needed, Feedback, - info contributors and foto contributors. Your name or you may use a pen name if you wish - no anonymous. Anything pertaining to dance, of course..Anything to advise with the Pandemic, fine. And you can feel free to feedback anything else that may be of interest to the Social Dancers. At least two lines but a nice paragraph of five or six lines would be perfect. Photos, - 2 people is mo bettah than one. Three is mo bettah than two. But 19 is not mo bettah than 18. use your head red. Yes we are somewhat limited, with Facebook, you may be read in Pakistan. Our readers are mostly on this little island Oahu out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

"Take Me Home, Country Roads" by Bruddah Iz


Latest on the Trump Pandemic: Lt. Gov. Josh Green believes a “stay-at-home” order for Oahu, which was originally set to be lifted Sept. 10, will likely be extended by two more weeks. “I can tell you that we have to get to a point where we have no more than 150 cases a day, That’s about the sustaining threshold where our hospitals don’t get overrun.” Perhaps we can breath easier by the end of September. Halloween Dance? Not likely?

Basic, Social Distance

The most basic movements to music are in disco free styling in night clubs, and not partner connected, mainly for the young. From there, some proceed to line dancing, again without a partner. But the movements are programmed in sequence or a routine for each dance. The routine must be followed because everyone will be doing the same thing. The main thing, of course, is to listen to the music and then allow your body to move to it. The music first and then you go with it.

“Social dancers believe there are some days that the
bravest thing we can do,is to hold on, have hope,
dance a little, even if just for another day.”


Line dancing can be very crucial in these times because it is relatively easy to social distance. You can relax and learn the timing and the rhythm of each type of dance with some freedom. Second, it is the easiest way to learn to move routinely to the music simply because you do not have a partner. Not the hardest, but the easiest, most relaxing way to move to music, which is the best way. And it is entirely up to you how much you exaggerate each move. You can really enjoy moving to the music by yourself.

"The Music Of Hawaii" by Melveen Leed


And that movement to music is what the body seeks when it hears music, that is dancing! From there it may be easy all the way, but it can get quite complicated. You would naturally be ready to learn to lead and partner dance. If you don't get in a hurry and just enjoy each stage of the game, you will eventually be a very good dancer. There are Social Dancers that have been dancing for forty years without ever being in a competition or done an exhibition. They must have been having fun and that is the name of our game.

ought to be the primary study of man." ~ Cicero

Sunday Web Site?

This is first edition of the Sunday dance blog on Oahu


And we have the first outside announcement to share with our fellow dancers on Oahu.

In just a couple months since reopening, the total number of Trump Pandemic cases in Hawaii has reached 6,700, and public health officials are now reporting around 200 new cases a day. During this time, the death toll has also nearly doubled, jumping from 26 to 49, the figures show.Hawaii is the latest state where the number of cases is increasing; the Southern and Sun Belt states have been experiencing explosions of new cases and deaths in recent months after many reopened in May at the urging of Trump, and the pandemic picked up steam in those areas.

Shall We Dance?

By Frederick Aoyama, Palolo Valley
Nobody seems to know what real dancing is. And I suppose there are many different kinds of "real" dancing. Perhaps ten thousand different dances throughout the world. To find a real dance would be the easiest thing in the world or it would be quite impossible. Each person has to find their own and social dancers were the fastest growing group on Oahu when the Trump Pandemic hit. Meanwhile we have several dances at hand, in which you can look and feel like a dancer more to your liking for when the lights go on again.

“Social dancers believe that if you lose hope, somehow you
lose that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all."

 

And the ladies can look feminine more to your liking. The American Style of dancing and specially the Latin dances are a very good beginning, Although some men have learned Salsa on the dance floors of night clubs on Oahu and have done very well, they have also found it necessary to take lessons with a variety of Salsa dance teachers. You must have a great passion for the dance to learn without lessons. Fortunately we, on Oahu, have some the best teachers of American style of dance in the Pacific.

"Fly Me To The Moon" by Jimmy Borges


They don't play much variety of Latin music in Hawaii Night Clubs so we have to take what we can get. The young are more into acrobatic bop, hip hop, do wop and disco type which is always non-stop. So this means that you can only find our kind of dance music in the various social dance clubs about town that have a little breather in between dances. The silence can be golden. Most are in public buildings such as School Cafeterias, District Parks and Community Centers and of course, the deluxe Golf Course Ballroom, Any man interested in dancing would find any of these places good to start to gather information for the learning process.

“Most Social dancers understand that life is under no obligation
to give us what we expect.”

The Information Contributors

Our Blogging is just holding its own with very few legit hits. Occasional splurges from search engines but not like da reel teeng. I am looking for these dancers out there that are willing to share some Island dance information with our fellow dancers. Ideally it would be a small paragraph and a photo. The effective job is when the synergy multiples into a larger amount of hits for all internet dance connections on this Island. For now we must work on getting the same synergy with more hits, which tell us that we are communicating.

"Some Social dancers believe, that if is not them, then who will stand
for facts and reason and learning and truth?


We simply need a blog site that communicates with our fellow dancers and we must be well aware of it. I must seek Information Contributors to any blog of their choosing. When we get three semi - permanent people in any blog, we can start the planning to make it independent. I can appoint all three as Administrators and I can resign as Administrator. They will run it as they wish and all I will do is blog what I can.now and then when needed. But it is on its own and it can get it's own information contributors. With one more after that they could tell me that "they accept my resignation."

"City Lights" by Loyal Garner


I have got a lot of work ahead of me and I do not have enough time. You, young people might think about yesterday because hopefully you will have learned from your mistakes. Then it should also be pleasant to remember the good things. You must think about tomorrow, because you hope to do better than you did yesterday. But the important one is always today, make the most of it. It will never come again. We must cater to the wants of "our" reader/dancers, give them what they want and make it easier for them to make the right choices. This is different thinking? Definitely.

"Most social dancers accept that a good idea
can never drop into a closed mind."
