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.

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.

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."
