These acknowledged champions in Lindy Hop and Blues were seen in the recent movie Avengers: The Age of Ultron (doing aerials in the party scene with Captain America) and also were invited to dance in the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games! They specialize in Lindy Hop, Blues and Aerials.
August 20: Featuring the Jazztones! Join us *UPSTAIRS* for a beginner-friendly lesson at 7:00 p.m., and live jazzy dance music from 8:00-10:00 p.m. No partner or experience necessary! General admission $10-$20 sliding scale (pay what’s right for you; the band appreciates your kokua).
September 3: CANCELED for Labor Day weekend.
The Hilo Elks Lodge is at 150 Kinoole Street in downtown Hilo, but the parking and entrance is in the back, off Ululani Street (just past the YWCA, which is on the corner of Haili and Ululani.) No partner needed--but bring a friend anyway!
PRICING OPTIONS for Swinging Saturday:

We are overjoyed to welcome the incomparable Alex Czerny back from his European vacation. He’ll be ticklin' the ivories and boogying the woogie for us as only he can. We also welcome wonderful guest drummer David Chuck. Rounding out the band is Robin Jensen on sax, Gonzo on bass and, of course Lou Ann on vocals. Good fun guaranteed!
