Evolving

This last week was pretty slow as far as acquiring enough dance information to make a good blog. Now that I am getting out more I may get more information to share with our reader/dancers. We did received some news that things were jumping at Dot's in Wahiawa and at Just Tacos in Miliani. Email us the information (and photos?) and we may be able to make a nice blog out of it.

"Dancers are finding that there is less in West Oahu of the joy-stealers - gossip, criticism, complaining, faultfinding, and a negative, judgmental attitude."


In the Central Valley we have some good street dances and folk dances that have been developing for decades. These are distinguished by when the terms were introduced for,"'street dance" as a compound noun, and has been believed to have existed since beginning of the early 20th century. Where as vernacular dance was becoming popular in the western world, it has never been taken seriously into consideration on Oahu.

We have been developing social dancing that has evolved from dancing to live music. In the course of music and dance we have developed two different fans of live music, listeners and the dancers. Many are interchangeable. We have to include both categories in this blog. So if you are just interested in listening to one of your favorites it is quite alright.

"Social dancers do not try to be better than anyone else,
they only try to be better than themselves."
