The Granada LA.

It is actually in Alhambra, California, just a short way from Los Angeles. A Dance Studio, Restaurant and Night Club. Whatta combo! Someday, there will be one built in the center of the island of Oahu. As far as possible away from the Rail Tragedy. Wahiawa?

Great dance school....The Granada LA, which is also about their restaurant and night club.
Great floors (yes, more than one floor) - Great instructions with world class teachers - Great prices (pay each time, buy punch card, or buy monthly cards at discount) - Good variety of dances (check their website for schedule; minor changes monthly) - Nicely designed lessons that include both technique and dance patterns. GREAT FELLOW STUDENTS.... It is stressed that the clientele here is really great; everyone is here for the dance! - Free party entry for students! - free parking.

We could go on. but you get the drift. Salsa is their main stay, but the cha cha, bachata, rueda, tango, swing, ballroom, zumba, pilates, flashmob, hip hop and kids classes are avaiable in group setting and are all worth trying. Samba, rumba, quinceneras and other dances, you'll have to book private lessons, for now. Hope this helps..

Making Plans

I run a spreadsheet program for data keeping my five blogs in hit order. I have also two other outside blogs on Oahu dancing included in the data. Naturally the hits began to drop when the dancing stopped. I posted whatever I could that might be of interest, but they still went down. Mine were never too high anyway so they seem to have bottomed out. The other two blogs has many more hits and dropped even faster. But we know that when the actions begins again, they will bloom again.

“Social dancers believe that things may get easier, people's minds will change,
and we may still be alive to see it.” 

Meanwhile, any of our few readers can email us something that we can share with our fellow dancers. Dancing of course is primary but we have discovered other things that we can do. Cooking at home and Dining out a little is good for starters. A paragraph with five lines would be nice. Photos of course are easy to email with a short caption and I can usually post from that. I can include it with other items to fill out the blog.

From the Internet according to studies on the Mainland: Cooking at home can help control your weight. People who frequently make their own meals consume less calories, fats and sugars and more fiber than people who cook once per week. That is probably because they have more control over ingredients and portion sizes than they do when they dine out. Keep  safe and we shall dance again.

"Social dancers on Oahu, believe that they do not have to go where the path leads,
they can go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
