A year ago, Hawaii had made plans to market itself as “the safest place in the world.” and then the Trumpanzees wanted to make some money. We opened up too soon and too much. More than 12,000 people in Hawaii have been diagnosed with the virus. Outbreaks at jails and nursing homes are challenging our ability to manage the disease in vulnerable settings even today. And the virus has established itself so firmly in the community that the federal government has had to step in to help health officials get a grip on the exploding number of cases.
"The one thing that all social dancers have that nobody else has is us.
Our voices, our minds, our stories, our visions. So we can dance
and enjoy moving to the music as only we can."
We closed up and then the Vaccines came in and we thought it was over. And again we opened up too soon and too much. The QAnon have had a big influence on the Trumpanzees. Then the tourists have been bringing variants to complicate matters. The vaccines are only 90% effective which is still better than zero percentage. But it also means 10% will be infected. The dance populatione has been very respective of the entire dance scene in acceptance of what is necessary to stay safe and protect our fellow dancers. The schools are a big question mark.
How do you make a tissue dance? You just put a little boogie in it!
