Square Dancers, plan to visit the islands for the Hawaii State Convention in January, 2002. Plan to join us on the "Star of Honoluu", a 247 foot cruise vessel for the after party sponsored by the Square Dance Federation for dancing on board with many callers, fun dances and fun badges, whale watching, cruise of Pearl Harbor and visit the Arizona Memorial. What fun. Also, join the Pali Twirlers for the Luau on the Bay, an excellent evening of authentic ancient and modern Hawaiian dancing, authentic luau meal and square dancing in one of the most historical sites on the island. These are but a few of the fun things happening in Paradise.
Square Dancing in Hawai'i
The Pali Twirlers, our club out in the country in Kaneohe, over the past 30 or 40 years, has developed into a great social fun dance. We dance every Thursday evening in the Pahainoni Senior Center in Kaneohe on Oahu across the island from Honolulu. If you will call, we will assist with directions. We dance from 7:00 pm til about 9:30 pm. We often have two to three squares with many guests from around the world. We are lucky to have folks like the Pali bunch who like to whoop and holler, stomp and have a real country good time. We continue to maintain our committment to teach a complete list in standard Mainstream, Plus and A1 (standard position). So, if your in Paradise, come on out and join us for an evening of fun.

I was also a Caller. I called for the North Shore Twirlers on the North shore of Oahu for about four years. We had a very unique and fun club. Unfortunately, my work with WSF required that I begin to travel and there were no other callers to stand in. So, the Club decided to disband. Now Patty and I just dance. Ocassionally, when our club caller is unable to work, I do stand in for him. And, I call at festivals and special dances now and then. I really liked the work and miss our Club.

Calling is a wonderful craft and it brings great joy to those whom we teach and call. The North Shore Twirlers initiated the Whale watching cruise onboard the Star of Honolulu and we had up to five callers working and singing together on the main deck. This is a great event. If you have an opportunity to attend our festival in January, don't miss this event.
