    Hi there
    I will be on Kuaui February 28 – March 15 2018. I’m looking for Latin and ballroom social dancing. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Are there ever Swing / Lindy dance fests or exchanges during the year? I’d like to come over from LA.

    Aloha Any East coast Swing, Jitterbug or Lindy on Kauai

      Your best bet is Rob’s on Tuesday night. We play a variety of swing, mostly west coast, but some east coast swing as well. Rob’s Good Times Grill is on Rice Street in Lihue. You may contact me at for more information. Rae-Marie

      There was no dance yesterday because of Thanksgiving weekend. You will find dancers there almost every Sunday. There is generally a lesson at 7:00 with dancing to follow. If you would like to be on the email list, email me at

    Hi I’m from Colorado and just recently moved here. I dance swing and blues and would be willing to teach some classes if anyone is interested: for swing I mostly teach Lindy, jitterbug, and Charleston

      Hi Nia,

      I send out a weekly dance email for Kauai. Would you please contact me at and I will include you in my contacts’ list if you’d like to receive it. I can also give you the contact information of the person who plans our dance lessons in Kilauea.

      Hello! I know this is quite old, but do you still live on the island? I love to lindy and would really enjoy learning blues.

    Unfortunately you just missed Latin Night at Aloha Beach Resort (first Saturday of every month). We do have a Latin band on island called Rhumba de Fuego which plays at different venues. I’m not sure where they are playing this month. Try giving Trees Restaurant, behind the Coconut Marketplace, a call. They often play there. Tuesdays at Rob’s is lots of fun, but not much Latin music I’m afraid. Mostly swing.

    I am a Latin dance instructor looking for a place to dance salsa, rueda, bachata, merengue or cha cha on Kauai. Wouldn’t mind giving some free lessons, if location and time fit into our schedule. Thanks for any info, Robert

    Hello! I’m a Brazilian Zouk & West Coast dancer. Could you please recommend Brazilian Zouk & West Coast dance locations? I’d also like to dance Argentine Tango, Blues, & Salsa On1, but I predict those will be easier to find.

    My husband and I are hoping to learn ballroom dancing before our dancing daughter gets married (They’ve been dating 3 years and it’s looking serious) We aren’t the quickest learners, so it’s time to start…. where’s the closest location to the North Shore?
