Social Dancing

It has become evident that the disciplines on Oahu have been too strict in their definitions of dance. Specially from the normal evolving groups over the last 40 years. this had contributed much to the slow down in the increase in dancing interest for the last couple decades. And have been responsible for the increase in so many new dance clubs in the last two decades. In these situations, researchers are often interested in questions related to social choice, untruths, conformity, and group polarization.

"Social Dancers believe that if you love life enough that you want to enhance its
beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more dance to it.”


Many do not remember the term "Ala Wai Dancer" about a year after the Palladium Opened. You were not dancing according to the rules, ya dumb bunny. Shortly after that, another term emerged, "Junk Dancer" and for sure, you were not dancing according to the rules. And the social dancers began to realized what the elite thought about "Social Dancing." However as friendly people are likely to be, we all tried to get along and that is the way it should be.

 "Look of Love" by ABC  (1982)


Fortunately, I realized that I could not dance according to their rules. I am a failure and I just didn't have it.  Now the rules are not all downtown and the Palladium will not dictate dancing on the outskirts of Oahu or the neighbor islands. On Oahu, Kapolei is one corner, Turtle Bay is across the Island. Makaha is one corner and Makapuu Point is across the Island. We shall be friends and we shall dance with each other not according to somebody's rules but how we want to dance it and enjoy moving to the music.

"For some, life is battle, for others it’s a dance For the rich it is a party,
for the poor it is chance."
