What Kind Of Dancing?

I don't mean to be sensitive but yes, I am now getting to the point that if they don't look interested, I'm outta theah! I am not selling anything and I don't want to get in anyone's way.  I am not going to waste anymore of their time or mine. I have too many possibles, the hits keep going up, I am too old and I must be on my way. No Hu Hu.

We need more men dancers. On this entire island of Oahu for some reason line dancing has a big female advantage in number of dancers. So there is great opportunity for men to meet women in line dance classes. And men can be very good line dancers, specially to live music for they concentrate more on the music than a partner and the steps. When it was very western most men did not feel right unless they had a Cowboy hat on and Cowboy boots. Perhaps a gun slung around the waist. Now, just enjoy moving to the music.

Of course, for many men, line dancing has been the forerunner for partner dancing in which men learn to lead. And in West Oahu, we seem to be getting an increase in percentage of men in social partner dancing too. We have the same two favorites as of town. Those dancers whose primary purpose to dance. And those who love the music and want to move to it, definitely less fancy. Of course, in this entire island if it happens to be in the company of women, terrific.

I have not seen it very often in Night Clubs but it has seemed like a very nice break in the nights festivities. They only thing bad in the "break" kind line dancing, it can get much too fancy for the ordinary social dancer. The disciplines have a very good reason to separate into three classes. Bronze, Silver and Gold. You can certain have a long and lasting good time in social dancing with just the Bronze and a little of the Silver, "If" you enjoy the music first.
