All classes start at 7:00 p.m. and no partner is needed.

Mondays: Lindy Skills—for students who have learned the Swingout, Andie will refine your momentum and dynamics, incorporating moves which build off simple exercises.

Tuesdays: Tuesdays: Beginning 8-Count Lindy Hop. A great way to start having fun with the original style of swing dance! No previous dance experience necessary. Angela will teach the essential rhythms, partner connection and moves, including the iconic Swingout.

Here are the Top 10 reasons to take a class with the Hilo Hep Cats:
1) You receive personalized attention in small classes and the opportunity to dance with more experienced dancers
2) A half-hour of guided practice on the same night as your class is now included in the class price, allowing you time to solidify your new knowledge
3) Our emphasis on the *quality* of movement and partner connection, rather than memorized patterns, provides you with a solid foundation for many other partner dances
4) Once you’ve mastered the basics, we focus on creativity, innovation and alternatives so you can make each dance uniquely yours
5) Swing music is upbeat and Lindy Hop is fun; it will bring a grin to your face
6) You’ll experience a piece of America’s dance heritage: swing and blues dances evolved with the American genres of jazz and blues music and then took the world by storm!
7) Both swing and blues dances are versatile and can be danced to a wide range of tempos and music
8) Our new venue is the only studio in town with a smooth, sprung floor, mirrors and air conditioning!
9) Hep Cats’ instructors have received practical training from some of the top Blues, Lindy Hop and Fusion professionals in the US and will ensure that no matter whether you’re a Visual, Auditory or Kinesthetic learner, material will be presented in an appropriate format for you
10) We love what we dance and we absolutely love sharing it with you!
Our new venue is the Paradise Performing Arts Center at 29 Shipman Street, downtown in Koehnen’s Alley.  It’s right across from the Hilo Armory and there’s plenty of street parking.  Look for the signs for Aikido of Hilo and go up the outside ramp to the 2nd floor, then follow the hall to the left to find PPAC.  You will love the brightly-lit, roomy, professional studio—with air conditioning!
A six-week class session is $45 for an hour of instruction and a half-hour of practice each week, or only $5 per hour of studio learning time!  If you bring a new student at full price, you can get your own six-week session for only $30!  The drop-in rate is $10 per class (including the half-hour of practice time).  Those of you taking more than one class, the six-week rate is $35 for the 2nd and/or 3rd class.
All classes start at 7:00 p.m. and no partner is needed.
