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.

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 Much of it is obsolete, too old. Nice dance in there with photos. June of 2016. Fine for those that are interested.

"We are all here because we are not all there" Howzat again?

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 June 9th.

This will be the first blog since we got side tracked. And I have had little help but I hope the reader/dancers wil get their functions announced. It is something new and has never been done in a blog in Hawaii, but most people will know what has to be done. So as far as I am concerned it is a new beginning for the entire blogosphere. The links remain important but not as important as the information and photo contributors. They are the real meat and potatoes of social media and the reader/dancers must be willing to share. And of course, we must accept those that cannot share.

Back On Track

All my blogs came under attack from the European Union about something. I do not have anything to do with Europe. However, I am very much interested in supporting the social dance scene on Oahu. Finally got this cleared away on Tuesday. This blog still in third place but it should be closer to the bottom blogs.  Now we just need feedback from our fellow dancers to make this the best blog in the Pacific. Not possible?

“Music does not need the language of words for it has movements
of dance to do its translation.”


As a weekly blog, it should have some fairly pertinent and timely information. I expect to publish every Saturday for the Calendar Week starting on Sunday. If you have anything going, email it in and I will post it. We could develop quite a nice party week and starting with anything on Oahu. The North Shore, the Waianae Coast, Honolulu and the rest of the outskirts.

“Social dancers believe that the truth is not for all dancers
but only for those who seek it.”

Dance Week 5/19

For a start and seeing that this has never been done in a blog in Hawaii, not too bad. So as far as I am concerned it is a new beginning for the entire blogosphere. I can already see the advances on the total hits of all the blogs, slow but sure and it is only me. The links are definitely important but not as important as the information and photo contributors. They are the real meat and potatoes of social media and they must be willing to share. And of course, we must accept those that cannot share with their fellow dancers on these blogs.

Social dancers are well aware of an old saying. "Dancing with feet is one thing,
but dancing with the heart is quite another."

"What A Wonderful World" by Bruddah Iz

Anybody is welcomed in this social media on Oahu. We are not Twitter or Facebook and not likely to reach Nigeria. But we are beginning to communicate with all our fellow dancers on the Island of Oahu and a little beyond., of course, our coming Guest Blogger will be from West Oahu. This will all take time. When I get some help we will have a much better thing that we can call Social Media. Music, Videos, Couple of month, Dance Icons for our posters and more. 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 up a storm.

Dance Week 5/12

There is no one in the entire central Pacific that has the stats on dance organization like I do. First of course, is the fact that I have had over ten blogs active at one time. That with a few Web sites and three other blog sites with counters have given me "information." I quickly discovered that a web or blog site with single digit average per day hits is not worth it. Gradually the dance Web sites "lost" their counters. I do not know presently of any dance web site with a counter.

The Dance Week

"The story so far: In the beginning, the universe was created. This has made a
 lot of people very angry and it has been widely regarded as a bad move."

Meanwhile on Oahu we are trying to establish a "Schedule Blog." A schedule or a timetable as a basic tool, it consists of a list of times at which possible dancing tasks, events, or actions are intended to take place, or of a sequence of dance events in the chronological order in which such things are intended to take place. The process of creating a schedule - deciding how to order these tasks and how to commit resources between the variety of possible tasks in a blog - is called a schedule blog.


A blog that intends to be responsible for making a particular schedule of dance events is rare and we are making the attempt in Dance And Live on Oahu. But of course, this is not for everyone. Many do not need to be included in our schedules. They have web sites or are connected with other blog sites. They have packed houses at every dance, so we must have an understanding of why they do not need us. Meanwhile we start with what we got and you can email info; letram@gmx.com.

they cannot control, to admit they can do nothing.”

Weekly, Over and Out.

The interest is sorely lacking and I have no choice, I am running out of time. I will delete it before the end of the month. We have two bottom blogs that need feedback. Latin Rhythms and Dancing Nights.

“You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday
you'll join us. And the world will live as one.”  ― John Lennon


These two blogs still have a chance when they get a little feedback from the readers. Patience. You got a computer? Use it for our dance information on Oahu. If you don't see what you want, email something you are willing to share with the reader/dancers. There will be the "Fabulous Five" blogs left to choose from.

"Morning Dew" by Melveen Leed



Three steps to get in, just to see how your words look in the blog but anyone can skip whatever and go to the top. First is comments at the end of every blog. Second is information and photo contributors. Email, items of interest to the dancer and photos of the dance occasions. And the number one spot is for the Guest Bloggers, who in effect have their own blog within the blog of their choice. The can get in, post, publish, save and get out without saying "boo" to anyone. And they will have ready made readers anxious to read their pearls of dance wisdom.

The New Midweekly

This is the first mid weekly with a new format which will change according to the readers. So what's doing this weekend? I still have made little contact. I don't know much but the biggest and the best is the Anniversary dance Wahiawa Ballroom Dance Club at the Halemano Camp 808.

“Social dancers know that life is too short to waste any amount of time
on wondering what other people think about them."


I need more information of any scheduling the Week, Sunday through Saturday. And we all know that on the week ends everybody making so much money, no need to inform the dancers. For sure no one has ever done this before and some have told me that it will never work. So what do I know? But I am going to find out soon. Meanwhile if you got something you want in, just email it in. I will put in whatever.

"Tiny Bubbles" by Don Ho

If the week is about buckling down and earning enough money to buy a pair of jeans and wraps that contain avocado, the weekend is about trying hard to actually live. This is the type of energy that infiltrates every Friday; an energy that can power even the most bah of humbugs to an unexpectedly memorable evening. Friday night is the night when people are out to prove themselves. Let's dance, clear eyes, full hearts and let’s booze. And then there is Saturday, an old standby that never fails.

"How do you make a tissue dance? Just put a little boogie on it."

New Weekly

It is not working out, I made the mistake in not including any dance group. I said West Oahu and I did not get enough feedback to spread the word. Those that have web sites are getting packed houses, so they do not need additional public relations from any blog. They certainly have a right to their opinions. I have changed the date to publish on Saturday and use the calendar week, with Sunday being the first day. Any one that wishes to get on the calendar can email the information. I will also have a midweek blog to flower up some of the weekends.

“Dancing doesn’t give rise to anything in us that isn’t already there.
It simply stirs our curious consciousness and sparks a fire
that illuminates who we have always wanted to be.”

The blog was not picked up by the search engines so we must wait for that and the hits are not rolling in. Round dancing is unknown in West Oahu as far as I know. There must be some on Hawaii somewhere I just don't know yet where. Square dancing yes, plenty in town and we don't have a clue about Triangle dancing. There are plenty of good people on Oahu that like to move to the music of their choice. But we are not clones, we have our independent opinions and many will differ. No Hu Hu.

Week 6, late

I went to routine check up with my Doctor at the VA, Saturday afternoon. and found out the infection in my leg was not getting better with the lotions applied. I had not received the oral antibiotics and they sent me direct to Emergency at Tripler. Waited two hours and finally got a doctor, who recommended intra-venus anti biotic, immediately and would require a couple days stay. Just got out this afternoon and don't feet too bad. And the first thing I must do is catch up.

"Walk With Me Through Paradise." by Melveen Leed


"Just listened to Autumn Leaves by Eva Marie Cassidy, an American singer and guitarist known for her interpretations of jazz and blues, she was virtually unknown outside her native Washington, D.C. She died of melanoma in 1996. I've heard many good singers on this song...beautifully. They sang it. This woman owned it. She took it apart, re-assembled it, infused it with her soul, her passions, her dreams and gave it to us. It was as if I had never heard it before. Her love for the song aroused my love for listening, she danced with me."

Week 5

It is still a struggle and I still do not know. When I am sure that the clubs are not interested I will drop the Blog. It is not dead at this point but it remains a question mark.  A weekly blog is new, not everyone knows about it yet and it may not be back in the search engines yet. And I just added another blog to the Sunday weekly, on Thursdays, specializing on the Week End attractions on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So what do I know? The readers will decide and they are pretty well informed with the other dance blogs. You want something in it, email it in.

"Welcome To The Jungle" by Guns N' Roses 1987

There are many Webmasters for the many dance clubs, studios and night clubs out here on Oahu that are aware of this but they have a world of their own and we must respect it. Meanwhile I have my work cut out for me. I must rustle the bushes for Information Contributors, Photo Contributors and a few Guest Authors for all the blogs. According to my stats we are at the point of diminishing returns with mostly SOS, (Same Old Shit.) So come one, come all, the readers are awaiting and need whatever information you may wish to share.

"Dancing in the Dark" by E Street Band  1984

Our entire enchilada of blogs show signs of improving even with the dilution of the readers available for the six blogs. The different blogs do provide a kind of synergism in attracting more readers so that the total hits keep going up. The secret is to find the Information and Photo Contributors willing to share their pearls of information with their fellow dancers. They are crucial and may eventually be the Guest Bloggers that will take over when the time comes.

With an average hits per day going lower, this weekly blog is not doing so good. But a weekly blog is new and not may not be back in the search engines yet.

The readers are pretty well informed with the other dance blogs.

Week Three

This is the third week and I must face it. Tough going and I was told that a weekly blog would not work because it had never been done before. Makes Sense. Most people do not see this blog for advancing their public relations. No Hu Hu, I understand that this has never been done before with a blog so I don't know but neither does anyone else. So I have no choice but to try it and I intend to publish every Sunday for West Oahu and including the North Shore until I know what I am doing. The dance highlights of the week - and as always I am open to suggestions. I will ignore the one that says, "dump it."

"Social dancers believe that love is a song, dance a celebration, - a song of

"From Here To Eternity" by Englebert Humperdinck


The basic moves are the regular moves made in most dances. regular even step walks, rock step, chassé, slow and quick step and the different music beats that will be followed. We don't even have to speak the same language verbally because we can communicate through the rhythms of the music. The Gold or advance division are definitely for people interested in exhibitions and competitions. If there are at least 600 documented steps in each dance, that leaves over 500 for their use. And we all agree that they do very well indeed. For our partner social dancing we don't need. We want to enjoy moving to our favorite music.

“Social dancers are not afraid of death, they are afraid of an unlived life.
You don't have to live forever, you just have to dance and live.”
