The center of dance communication in the Pacific is definitely on Oahu.
Dance Fever Hawaii has got to be the most informative dance Web site, covering Oahu but definitely read in the neighbor islands. It remains the most informative news available for the social dancers on the island of Oahu. All the other Web sites on Oahu are exclusive to whatever dance club is sponsoring them so the readership may be limited to single digit average per day hits. Though none of them have counters. To be sure, the entire Hawaii blogosphere is subject to all of the same risks as the Internet itself. Many Web sites are loaded with vanity posts, half-truths, rumors, and even intentional distortions.
"Social Dancers do not try to dance better than anyone else,
they just try to dance better than themselves."
Blogging is much different in intents and goals. In our dance blogs, we intend to enhance the knowledge of all Cultural - Recreational dancers as to our type of partner dancing and to accept the fact that we can lead a very enjoyable life dancing our way. We can include others for general information and without any apologies to anyone. It is simple enough and we must know if we are not just beating our gums and for our blogs - our counters, though not perfect, are supreme.

In the West, we know little about dance floors. The best dance floor in the West is at the Waianae District Park. No one seems to know why or when it was built. As far as we know, no one has ever danced on it. We are getting some knowledge as we progress in our dancing in the West. Gradually, some people are becoming aware of the portable dance floor. But it is really good only if it can be set down for at least a couple days. If we cannot get a District Park or Community Center in West Oahu, we have to do something to find a place to dance, in Honokai Hale or Kakealoa, for instance. Even if we have to lay down the floor ourselves.
The Secret: I finally found the secret of how to live to be 100 in Pearl City. A very old man told me; he said, "first you get to 99 years old then be very, very careful."
