Vacationing and Jet Lag

Lani and I are back after vacationing at Las Vegas nearly the past two weeks. We had left the final two lessons of the American Cha Cha Variations in the capable hands of our son Dean, and Kathy, our assistant instructors. Our students will be demonstrating all what they had learned in the Variations this coming Monday at the Student Party. We're looking forward to it. On our flight back from Las Vegas on HA5, we met some flight attendants who were interested in Ballroom and Latin Dancing. Normally the top conversation on flights out of Las Vegas centers on "how did you do in the casino or did you do any golfing?" But Ballroom and Latin Dancing can be and was a good and interesting conversation subject especially during that long 6 hour flight. Fortunately, I had some videos of the dance exhibitions Lani and I were in during our glory days, in my Kindle Fire to show. Hopefully, I've interested at least two of the Flight Attendants, Elaine and Terry who gave us wonderful service, to visit the IBDI dance classes at the Palladium.

Talk about "jet lag"; I'm still trying to kick the habit of getting up at 4 in the morning and hitting the sack at 7 or 8 at night. AUWE! But it sure feels good to be back home in Hawaii.  Pau fo' now.

IBDI 3rd Term Dance Classes & Workshop

Hi, All,
Registration for IBDI's 3rd Term will start on Monday, May 18, from 6:30 pm in the Ewa ballroom. For those who were in the Beginning International Tango class and want to learn more Tango, we are offering American Tango. Many of the patterns in American Tango are different from International Tango but you can dance International and American to the same music and you can interchange the patterns. We are also offering Beginning International Foxtrot and East Coast Swing I. The Foxtrot is more of a traveling and smoother dance than the waltz.. East Coast Swing is a versatile dance many of us danced in high school, and is often played at social events and reunions as well at the Palladium dances.

(Left click to zoom in)

After registering for classes, stay for free dancing in the Ewa ballroom, or attend the special workshop in the Diamond Head ballroom.

The special workshop will take place from 7:30 to 9 pm., conducted by Ellen Ostler of Rythmic Dance Infusion Studio. Looking good and feeling good about your dancing involves more than learning step patterns. Proper movement, position, posture, isolations and styling can really improve your dancing. Ellen's Workshop will focus on these other aspects of dancing. Her Workshop is appropriate for all levels, and both men and women. Please join us.
For those who want to plan your social events for the remainder of the year, a poster with IBDI's scheduled dances is also attached.
Keep Dancing,
Ed Matsuda
IBDI Dance Director
