So Many

There are so many fans of live music on Oahu, that I have been very surprised that we don't hear much from them.This is supposed to be Social Media. But of course, I realize that not many on this Island know what that means. That is OK, none of us know everything but we can sure learn.

"The most destructive force in our dance world is gossip and those
who spread it. Most dancers try not to get involved in it"

A Blog site is not a Web site. They are two separate kinds of communication. Our dance blogs are much more current and the readership increases with the increased amount of input into the blog from others beside the blog originator. We do not know much about the Live Music dance scene. But there are an awful lot of people out there who do. Email it to us and we will post and share with our reader/dancers. A photo or two, wow, think of the appreciation from so many people.

"Stranger In Paradise" by Tony Bennett

An advantage of dancing to live music is that there much less incentive to "show off." No hu hu, a natural function of many dancers. But to live music the dancers tend to react more to the music with basic movements and less worry about whether they are dancing "correctly." And moving to one's favorite song is one of the greatest pleasures in life. Drunk or Sober. This is Social Dancing.

future Fears - To-morrow? - Why, To-morrow I may be Myself
