Hyrum’s Elite Hall will be transformed into a 1930s jazz club for the thirteenth annual Jazz Night, presented by the Department of Music in the Caine College of the Arts (CCA) at USU on Feb. 9-11 at 7 p.m.

“Guests will have the option of a dinner and dancing ticket for $25 or a dancing only ticket for $10,” Jon Gudmundson, director of jazz studies in the CCA, said. “Dinner will be catered by Firehouse Pizzeria.”

While you eat and dance the night away, enjoy live big band music performed by the Downbeat Award-winning USU Jazz Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble.

“Big band music will draw you to the dance floor to experience the Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Charleston and more,” Gudmundson said. “There is only one dance hall left in the state of Utah that has a spring-loaded floor and it’s located right here in Cache Valley, It is a great experience to dance on a sprung floor—your dance partner will thank you and your knees will thank you!”

February 9 is a dancing-only ticket (punch, ice water and cookies—no catering) while February 10 and 11 offer the options of a dancing-only ticket or a dancing plus dinner catered by Firehouse Pizzeria ticket. All are welcome to attend any (or all) of the three nights. The USU Big Band Swing Club will provide free dance instruction every night at 6 p.m.

Tickets for Jazz Night at Elite Hall are $10 for dancing only or $25 for dinner and dancing and are available at the CCA Box Office in room L101 of the Chase Fine Arts Center, online at or by calling 435-797-8022.
