We shall also include salsa, bachata, merengue, milongas, jitterbug, swing era including Balboa & Lindy hop, East & West Coast Swing,

Wots Doin'? Week Ending Saturday, January 26th.

Monday, January 21st. Dragon Upstairs, 7-11 PM - Noche Latina, DJ Fresco Spinning. No Cover. I will visit first chance I get.

Wahiawa Ballroom Dance Club, Ballroom dance classes at the Wahiawa Recreation Center. Teachers, Felipe Repollo and Carol Mendoza, Line dancing on Wednesday,

Whiskey Dix in Aiea, Nice Drinks, Free line dance lessons. Line dancing needs more men.


The clubs and bars on Oahu do pretty good business every day of the week, after all there are maybe 90,000 tourists and almost a million residents on this island. But we know that most locals party Thursday through Saturday nights, not so much on Sunday. The main difference is many bars won't have their usual live music or even DJs. So we are trying to find one to put into our Sunday spot.

DAL Midweek, January 16th.

Do you have a social dance, dance studio or dance night club? Do you offer dance information that the dancers would like to know about.? For almost a century on Oahu, dance information has been by word of mouth. newsletters and posters on bulletin boards. Our top developer for this blog has not thought of everything we need to create a "schedule" blog site that will impress our reader/dancers. But we need this blog site and can be assured that, however the users access the blog site, the look and quality will stay almost the same.

“Social dancers' advice for life: dance and sing your song while the party is still on.”


Dance and Live has been setup to be publish every Saturday with the coming dance attractions of the calendar week, Sunday through Saturday. The list of menus will make our finished blog site easy to navigate, and user-friendly, encouraging people to return. Spread the word about your dance group in this blog site and watch your members increase and go from strength to strength.


The dance scene is becoming the most liked, trusted and fastest growing group on Oahu, with more than 30 thousand dancers and heading to 40 thousand by the end of the decade. Social, exhibition and competition dancers and the specialties such as line, country, tango and swing dancers. And now we have Web and Blog sites, and Micros (Twitter, Facebook etc.) No language barriers. No animosity. Just pure, awe-inspiring movement to music. We, the dancers need your feedback.

We continue working to provide you with a list of venues, events and times for your happy feet. Browse this blog, and let us know all that we’ve missed. We’ll add whatever if it does require fifteen pages. But you all know what we mean. Most dancing places are doing quite well without us. So I must try to help wherever I can and I am open to suggestions. I was invited to the shindig in Wahiawa by the Wahiawa Ballroom Dance Club, and I am making three blogs with all the photos I got.

We will continue working to provide you with a list of venues, events and times for your happy feet. Browse this blog, and let us know all that we’ve missed. We’ll add it for you. Line dancing is progressing along very nicely But of course it is slow going and we cannot get enough information to share with the readers. A Playlist? A couple years ahead of its time for the rest of the dance groups and I am not sure if it is needed. Most dancing places are doing quite well without me. So I must try to help wherever I can and I am open to suggestions.

“Social dancers accept that there are those who dance the notes
and those who dance the music.”

Week Ending Saturday, January 5th, 2019

Again we have every thing jumbled up and our readers already have several offerings for everyday of the week. I will have to hustle to get something for the following week. Rest assured the social dancing has been evolving very nicely in the past. The year 2019 looks very promising for the island of Oahu, and perhaps getting close to 50,000 dancers going at it full blast. And there will more live music to enjoy. In the Social Dancing World there are so many different dances that it’s hard to get an overall picture of all the different types of Ballroom dance styles that are out there. While there are many Latin and Ballroom dances, most of them can fit into at least one category or style.

“In the Social Dance world, you're not allowed to have legs and not use them.
- So Dance.”


I have included the most popular Social dances based on the American Syllabi. This is a style that is mainly danced in the United states but it is gaining popularity in other parts of the world. It’s main purpose was to make social dancing easy to lead and follow. It is danced both socially and competitively almost like the International style. The Ballroom dances that fall under this style are broken down into 2 groups: American Rhythm Dances which are favored more by the young than the American Smooth.

"Our Lips Are Sealed" by the Go-Go's (1981)


Cha Cha Cha is a must dance for the social dancer. This dance is a fun and cheeky dance emphasizing the quick, concise foot and leg actions. Rumba, another must that has a sensual feeling with lots of hip and body action, sometimes referred to as “Cuban motion.” Swing (East Coast) has a very energetic feel to it with lots of turns and spins for both partners and a favorite with most social dancers. Bolero is the slowest of the Rhythm dances and has a very graceful way of moving with rise and fall and lots of shaping however not a favorite of the social dancer. Mambo is fast with lots of body actions and ticks to accentuate the Latin music. Losing much interest in the last thirty years because of Salsa and Bachata which has come in strong in this century.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could,"

Week Ending Saturday, December 29th.

We’re working to provide you with a list of venues, events and times for your happy feet. Browse this blog, and let us know all that we’ve missed. We’ll add it for you. For this week we will eliminate the dance schedule. Most readers already have several functions to attend this Christmas week and there are plenty. However this a nice place to introduce the Blogger platform that is easy to set up and is also intuitive. Blogger is typically used for more text-heavy posts, but also does images which is all we do in our five blogs.

"Social dancers believe that you should dance while you can. Dance for the
music is catching and will not stop, the moves are easy. Dance till
the stars come down from the rafters - dance till you drop.”



I am specially eager to find dancers willing to help with the Blogging. You can start as a "Two Center" if you are just willing to email your two cents of information to share with the readers. I can coach by email. Next step is Guest Blogger whenever you think you are ready. You decide and I send your email address to Blogger. And they email you and if you accept, the password is between you and Blogger. Then you have your own blog within our blog with ready made readers.

Design is easy to set up and offers a lot of customization options, especially with colors and fonts. I can give you many graphics that you can use. I can coach you along the way. If you want to go further, there are a ton of pre-made Blogger templates available from great designers. The Blogger platform allows for more growth than other blogs. Here, you can set up multiple pages and multiple blogs that are easy to maintain. Blogger is free, and you'd only have to worry about domain registration.

"Those that never change their opinions, never correct their mistakes,
will never be the wiser on the morrow than they are today."

Dance Week Ended December 22nd.

We’re working to provide you with a list of venues, events and times for your happy feet. Browse this blog, and let us know all that we’ve missed. We’ll add it for you.  Mixed social dancing - Divino Ritmo sponsors a dance event on certain Saturday nights at their Aloha Dancesport Center on Ward Avenue. The new WISP (Lotus Hotel) now features dancing music with Jeannette Trevias each Wednesday. If you like 70's music the popular band Wasabi plays every second Thursday at the St. Louis Alumni Hall.
