Dancing Anyone?

Yes, I have been told, "Nobody dances in East Honolulu." However I have found a few whispers here and there. They seem to be divided about the same as in West Honolulu and I always try the three way method. Here the results are the "musics" the "combos" and the "dancers."

"There's music in the sighing of a reed;
There's music in the gushing of a rill;
There's music in all things, if people had ears:
Their earth is but an echo of the spheres."


The "Musics" are those that love music and cannot exist in the world without music. They wake up in the morning and insert their ears. They take them off again when they knock off for sleep. I have heard there are players that can be used in the shower. Anyway they are thoroughly saturated with music.

The "Combos" are most of us, that love music but we have other things to do that are just as important. If we do use earphones there is a remarkable effort to withhold movement to the music. They all feel it. But there comes a time when they will attend their social dance club, district park, community center and even night clubs. There they can hear their favorite music and move and enjoy according to their wishes. They can have a rollicking good time.


Night clubs are the best for individualism. They can be playing a jazzy cha cha cha and most of us will Cha. If there is couple dancing swing, who cares? We are all smiling and enjoying the movement to the beautiful music. The judges? They went that way.

Then we have the "Dancers." These people really take pains to dance correctly and with reason. Most do very well and the higher their elevation of dancing the harder they will be judged. Twenty years ago, the created the term, "Junk Dancers" which was applied to most of us. Most of them will be International Style dancers and of course, a few Exhibition Dancers - the absolute tops.

Pub's Side Note: I cannot do what one person tells me to do. But I can certainly hear what many of you say and then I must move accordingly. And yes, they tell me that in East Honolulu, there is no place to dance.
