Adjusting

We are losing hits in this blog and it should come at no surprise. I changed the name and the search engines are not yet aware. My fault, there is a way, just that I have not found it. I will be patient, the search engines will find it. But otherwise some people have accepted it and have just stayed on as readers and I thank you all.

The good news is I keep hearing or running into rumors of new dance groups. Kapolei is the one most indicated but what the hell do I know? Then there is the Waianae Coast just waiting for the right crowd to form. Then the North Shore has been doing something with Salsa. Cholos Homestyle and now Turtle Bay with Son Caribe laying down some good music. There will be a social dance club forming there soon, folks. Rome was not built in a day and times are changing but then I get impatient too.

Foxtrot in our social dance world has been lagging behind but it doesn't have to be your favorite to be useful. Your favorite dance is completely safe. There isn't a well constructed plan to sabotage your Rumba, Cha Cha, Salsa, or your Tango. The Foxtrot poses no threat to unseat those, or any other favorite dances you may have. So, being that this dance poses no risk to the near and dear dances to your heart, it is a fact that Foxtrot can be useful, even if you don't see it as fun or interesting. Your teacher may be risking something by recommending it to you but listen and think.

I am on a walker and I even have a helmet in case I fall. The walker helps to keep me from falling but I like to walk it is good for the environment - I am saving money on gas - it helps me stay trim - it is good for my mood and every step is a new adventure. Stay happy and keep on dancing.

"Social dancers may sometimes dance as if their gestures were shorthand
for a much larger and fuller dance, one that has held the whole
world together and kept it from extinction.”
