Fundraiser set for Elite Hall in Hyrum

Historic Elite Hall in Hyrum first opened in 1917 and during its glory days it was packed with dancers every Saturday night. Now the building, with one of two remaining spring-loaded dance floors in Utah, is on the National Registry of Historic Places. This means it will never be torn down but maintenance costs threaten the Elite Hall’s regular use as a dance hall. To help Hyrum keep Elite Hall open, students from the Utah State University Big Band Swing Club are hosting the third-annual Elite Hall Benefit Dance on Saturday, November 21st. Music will be provided by the Larry Smith Jazz Combo. Dance lessons will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. and the dance will follow. The evening will feature performances by USU Big Band Swing teams, Swing Set and Swingcopation.There will also be a Lindy Hop Competition and a Solo Charleston Competition with prizes.
