Week Ending Saturday, February 23rd, 2019

The Hit Analysis for this month is not so good, but the entire blog sphere for the year is in a transition period. It should standardize by the middle March. And we are still seeking the very valuable Guest Blogger who will help set direction for any of the blogs. Clones we don't need. They must all be different. However I will try to recap all the blogs in our blog sphere and any others that would like to get in even if only for the free publicity. Feedback is still the most important ingredient needed, because we will have something to share with our fellow dancers.

“Social dancers believe they can just open the door and let the music come in.
It will fill their minds and dance with their hearts.”

As a consequence, we believe that the dancers need the dance information and the photo contributors in our blogs, Everyone can observe as participants, and help to guide our friends and fellow dancers to a deeper understanding of what is really important in our dance environment. The problem is the "commitment" and they think there is a commitment. There is no commitment, we leave it open. So we must slowly make them aware that they can share info only when they damn well please.

DAL Midweek, February 13th.

"A blog should allow anyone to share photos and information with anyone, anywhere,
at anytime. This can also be important for those who are addicted to doing nothing
and are isolated from others who share our passion. Any sufficiently advanced
blog will be indistinguishable from its bloggers."

We have this nice evolving blog as a directory of what the week has to offer for us, the social dancers, covering the calendar week from Sunday to Saturday and I publish it every Saturday. It is a work in process and we welcome anyone,  I personally cannot get around much anymore but I can blog'em. If am invited  I shall make every effort to be there and blog'em. I, of course, will need someone to communicate additional information to me direct or by email and I will post the blog. Whenever we get outside feedback, the hits go through the roof.

“Social dancers know that no one is born beneath or above any dance.
Music and Dance gives birth to all of us.”


The "to be seen" groups are the competition and exhibition dancers and they are doing very well. Perhaps they do not need the help of ordinary dance blogs. We try not to bother them too much and long ago they decided not they would rather not be bothered. They will perhaps be covered more thoroughly in their own Blog and Web sites which are very well designed. Then there was a new "class" that was developing strongly in the nineties and which is now tapering off. The "viewers," the audience for the new Show Business of "Ballroom." New Divisions such as Cabaret, Acrobatic and Theatre arose. All show business and meant to be seen. By whom? By the "Viewers" of course.

"It Must Have Been Love" by Roxette  1990


There are still many different views of dancing on Oahu. We should accept that we are just additional participants in this great blogging. It is likely that some of the hard facts may rub off on the rest of us and we will all have a better acceptance of our differences. And then we must be willing to share the dance items of interest with our readers. Together we will give the readers what they want day after day. So come one, come all. We are grateful that this year we are not getting outside meddlers that were helping to screw up the works

Week Ending Saturday, February 16th, 2019

Read our blogs and you can still see a sameness in many of them. I am almost the only one. We need many more differences of opinion in our blogs. You, the reader/dancers are the only ones that can provide that difference. Pick a blog, anyone you like and write any thing you think is relevant. Dance items of interest or photos of our fellow dancers.

"Social dancers believe that anyone who says only sunshine
brings happiness has never danced in the rain."

“The Christian Evangelicals?: Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you
a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car.”

We should also recognize the great teaching by so many of our amateur teachers in the American Style of Dance. So many good dancers out there that have learned to dance the same simple movements over and over again in sheer joy to their favorite music. This definitely cannot be understood by the Rootzi Tootzis, never will. But you will notice that our social dancers are standing up a little straighter.

Week Ending Saturday, February 9th, 2019

Blogger: Most individuals lack the capacity, time, and motivation to follow and analyze news of the many simple questions that abide in our dance environment. But many of them and their close dance friends often directly experience most of the dance social pleasures and problems. These limitations are made worse by an ordinary news media that tends to over-simplify or over-complicate issues and to reinforce stereotypes, partisan viewpoints, and prejudices. We just may be able to do something in our blogs?

“Social dancers believe that you only live once, but if
you do it at least half right, once is enough.”

They say you should dance like no one’s watching, and that’s actually good advice. Whether you’re dancing at a club, or in the shower, or in your living room, there are many reasons to dance when you’re grabbed by the rhythm. Dance may have many benefits for people of all ages, even for those who have nervous system diseases that can limit or complicate motor skills. So whether you prefer to tango, breakdance, or foxtrot, strap on those dancing shoes and take yourself or a partner for a spin.
