Dancers of all ages are welcome, as it is an alcohol-free location!
Please put these WEST COAST SWING dance dates, (USUALLY on SUNDAYS), on your calendar!
Note that the city schedules the Palladium in 6-month intervals and final confirmation of dates will likely not occur until the final preceding month.
West Coast Swing dance - Membership/experience/partner not required!
Annual Memberships are $20 and provide a discount on dance entry. Join now!
The city opens its doors for us at 5:00 PM. Admission is $5 for members or $10 for non-members. Non-members will need to sign the waiver, which can be done ahead of time (see below).
Start with a lesson to get you started and help fine-tune your skills, then have fun with us on the dance floor with music to dance mostly West Coast Swing, plus some Night Club 2 Step, East Coast Swing, Cha-Cha, and Country 2 Step.
Wavier/Membership Requirement: We strongly encourage you to either buy your annual membership or sign the annual waiver of liability (for non-members) now to save time.
NO COVID RESTRICTIONS are in place. Masks are optional. Hand sanitizer will be available.
NO FOOD OR OPEN BEVERAGE CONTAINERS are allowed on the dance floor per the facility owners. Sealed water bottles are permitted. Any food or other beverages must be kept and consumed at the tiled entrance or outside the doors. A water fountain is available by the restrooms. Dance wax and powder are not allowed on the dance floor (it's an amazing floor). Thank you for your compliance and for helping maintain our facility's high quality.
Become a member and enjoy half-price entry to all of our dances for the duration of your membership! Your membership is valid for one year. For your convenience and to save time at the door, you may join now.

Don't worry, we still accept cold, hard cash.
Dances are held at the Ala Wai Palladium, on the 2nd floor of the Ala Wai Golf Course Clubhouse. A map can be found at the bottom of this page.
Take the short access road, alongside the Waikiki Public Library, straight into the FREE PARKING lot. Then, go UP to the huge WOOD 2nd-floor ballroom. The Palladium has the largest dance floor here in the islands with 11,000 square feet for the full ballroom. In case you're lost, a security guard will be on the premises.
Other organizations hold dances, lessons, or even practice sessions at the Palladium. Visit Dance Fever Oahu to see the currently publicized Palladium dance-related schedule.
