The Hilo Hep Cats host an introductory swing lesson followed by a DJ'd dance party every 1st and 3rd Saturday at the Hilo Elks Lodge, 7-10 p.m.!  Bring a copy or photo of the poster on the left to get your first night free--and please print and post the poster somewhere public so everyone knows about our Swinging Saturdays and can join in the fun.
 

June 17: Dance-abration for Alzheimers!  Experience a variety of different dance styles from local instructors for a fun, active night which benefits the local Alzheimer’s Association.  This special event is part of the national The Longest Day campaign to honor caregivers.  Cosponsored by the Hilo Elks Lodge.  Expect brief lessons in Bachata, Cross-Step Waltz, ‘20s Charleston and International Folk Dance! Taster lessons and open dancing to a variety of tunes from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.  Entry $15-$20 sliding scale.(We are looking for more help staffing the door; please contact hilohepcats@gmail.com if you’d like to volunteer for a shift and get in to the event for free.)

 

July 1: Join us DOWNSTAIRS for a beginner-friendly lesson at 7:00, followed by DJ'ed dance music from 8:00-10:00 in varying tempos for Swing, Blues and Balboa. Special pricing for Downstairs Swinging Saturdays: entry is sliding scale $5-$10, or $3 with a pupu.

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!

NOTE:  all participants in Swinging Saturdays are guests of the Elks, which is a private club.  One or more host Elks will always be in attendance at our events.  Be assured that everyone who comes is welcome and will be hosted by an Elk.

Can you believe it?  We’ve entered the 4th year of Swinging Saturdays at the Elks—and they’re getting more fun all the time!

In honor of our anniversary, we are offering SPECIAL REDUCED RATES for Swinging Saturdays when they are held DOWNSTAIRS AT THE ELKS, from March through August of this year. Regular entry for downstairs is now $5-$10 (sliding scale; pay what’s right for you!), and if you bring a pupu you pay only $3.  The first-night-free passes still apply and kids 12 and under are always free.  Come join us! We are usually downstairs at the Elks on the 1st Saturday of each month.
 

Your first night is free!  Bring one of the cards we've been distributing, or print out the card at left (or an image on your phone). Yes, this deal applies even to our special theme nights.
