Senior Line Dance Roundup workshop and performance June 28-29, 2012


The Hawai‘i County Department of Parks and Recreation is pleased to announce that the 12th Annual Senior Line Dance Roundup will be held June 28 and June 29 at the Afook-Chinen Civic Auditorium in Hilo.

Open to Hawai‘i seniors who are at least 55 years old, this year’s event is called “Can’t Stop Dancing” and will feature a workshop June 28 and line dancing performances the following day.

The workshop will be conducted by Ira Weisburd, an internationally recognized, award-winning line dance choreographer with over 30 years’ experience. The Floridian’s extensive background has allowed him to create a wide array of circle and line dances, including the SBS Shuffle Boggie Soul that won Weisburd the “Dancer’s Choice Award 2010” in Las Vegas, Nev. The dance later became a “Worldwide Flash Mob Project,” generating more than 400 videos from 35 countries.

Weisburd will conduct a workshop from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, June 28. There is a $10 per-person charge to attend.

On Friday, June 29, free line dancing performances will be presented from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the civic. The general public is invited to attend.

For more information, please contact Margaret Yafuso, Program Director, at 966-5801.
