Recommended Schedule

Social dance on Oahu is a major category or classification of dance forms or dance styles, where sociability and socializing are the primary focuses of the dancing. Social dances are generally intended for participation rather than performance and can be led and followed with relative ease.They are often danced merely to socialize and for entertainment, though they may have other ceremonial functions. The majority of the dancers on Oahu are Social Dancers.

"Sometimes social dancers may dance alone and that’s OK, as some music is
simply meant to be moved to - move, don’t stop! It’s your dance! ”


The schedule I had planned in this blog was for a proposed weekly objective, especially with reference to the sequence of each of  the recommended dance functions for the week. A timetable of a series of dance functions to be done or of events to occur at or during the week.

Point is: WE CAN all do something but Know your gifts, cultivate them and ALWAYS, ALWAYS BE YOURSELF! Then working together becomes effortless. Copies aren't accepted everywhere...ORIGINALS are eventually required!”

Dance Week ended August 4th.

There a still street dancers in Hawaii. But it seems as though the farther you get from Honolulu, the more street dancers. A street dance is a dance style that evolves outside dance studios in any available open space such as streets, dance parties, block parties, parks, school yards, and nightclubs. There are many capable dance studios in town that will take anyone that wishes to dance. The term is used to describe social dancing in urban context. Social dances are often improvisational and social in nature, encouraging interaction and contact with spectators and other dancers.

"Dance exists first on a simple level, not on an intellectual plane (even
though it eventually requires skill and intelligence). Its inmost
substance cannot be reasoned, only experienced.”

We will patiently for our first Guest Blogger and they pick whatever blog they want. The entry will be slow but just take time. When I get some help, others will see the results and the good reaction is that we will have a much better thing that we can call Social Media. Couple of month, Dance Icons for our posters and more feedback. I will need some help there. It all comes under Public Relations and some may think "who needs it?" That is just fine with me, as long as everyone knows that it was their decision. Meanwhile we can have a ball dancing a storm.

"Social Dancers believe that if they keep their feet firmly planted on the ground
they will never be able to dance."

Dance Week Ending July 21st.

This blog is getting noticed by a few although most simply do not know what's it good for.  Most of the readers know that I cannot get around much anymore. So there is way to get your deal in here, just email it a few days before Saturday for the following week's shindig. I shall post it and a nice poster in the blog would be appreciated by everyone. The thing is we are getting more choices on this Island which is all to the good.

“Social dancers know that with just a few good solid dance moves they are
totally aware of themselves, the music and dance their way
in a manner that is decided by their hearts."

Others have packed houses so no need let others know about their Shindig. I looked in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google. Lots of Web sites. Good eating, good drinking, good friends but not the information we need. Much of it is obsolete - a year old. They may have a nice dance in there with photos. June of 2016. Fine for those that are interested. I try to be update in this blog.

“Most social dancers really believe that you should never tell
the truth to people who are not worthy of it.”

This blog is getting noticed by a few although most do not know what to do with it - yet. Most of the readers know that I cannot get around much anymore. So there is way to get your deal in here, just email it a few days before Saturday for the following week's shindig. I shall post it and a nice small poster in addition would be appreciated by everyone.

"Social dancers are creators and they all create their own world on the dance floor,
moving with delight to the rhythm of the music."

Dance Week Ended July 7th.

This blog still the lowest in hits, but it is only natural. Few people have ever seen a blog with a schedule of the attractions in the coming week. And the recommend venues only. I have never done it before so I don't know really know what I am doing. I will be playing it by ear and the feedback may help. Our readers have their favorite places and perhaps they will be the ones willing to share their bits of precious information with our fellow dancers. Just email the info and I will post it. Patience, it should take a couple more months to get rolling.

"Social dancers know that you cannot teach a person anything,
you can only help them find it within themselves.”

"Social dancers know that we show courtesy to others, not because
they are gentle people, but because we are."

There are six blogs in existence at this moment and each one has a slightly different purpose. Each one has an Email address to make better contact. Anyone is welcomed in this social media on Oahu. Comments do not work anymore. So it is easier to just email whatever and you can choose the blog of your choice. A name except that Anonymous or Unknown will not be accepted. You may use a pen name if you wish. We are not Twitter or Facebook and not likely to reach Nigeria. But we are beginning to communicate, over 30 thousand dancers on the Island of Oahu. Facebook gets 50 million photos daily. Somebody missed yours?

Dance Week Ended June 30th.

This blog still the lowest in hits, but it is only natural. Few people are aware of the format and even I don't know what I am going to do with it. Actually this has been done on the Mainland many times before only not a regular weekly blog basis as I am attempting to do now. Our readers have their favorite places and those are the ones that will go in. Just email the info and I will post it. Patience, it should take a couple more months to get rolling.

"Social dancers know that dancing can reveal all the mystery that music conceals
and that is why the body wants to move to that music."
