Senior Roundup coming to Kauai

The Senior Roundup, for the first time, will be held on Kauai next week at War Memorial Convention Hall.

Set for June 4, 5, and 6, the statewide event features senior line dance groups from around Hawaii. Throughout the event there is line dancing, workshops from a select few line dance instructors, and also performances from each group that is in attendance.

The Senior Roundup has been going on for many years. It is rotated between Hawaii Island, Maui, and Oahu.

This year, it will be held on Kauai for the first time in its history.

Jeffrey Callejo Jr. is a line dance instructor on the island of Kauai. He travels frequently to Hilo for line dancing and has a following on Kauai and Hawaii Island.

This will be the second year that Callejo and his group, the only “non-senior” one, have been invited.

Last year it was held on Oahu where he was a guest instructor for the workshop segment and performed with two groups during the exhibition segments.

    Hawaii did a study on aging where they gathered the oldest looking people they could find to ask them about their longevity. One, who was 89 said she attributed her age to never having married. Another who was 94 said he had been married to the same woman his entire life. Some felt they had lived so long because they never smoked or drank. When they asked the oldest looking in the group, he said there had been so many he had no idea how many women he”d been wth. He was also a heavy drinker and smoker and spent as much time as he could outside in the sun wearing as little as possible.. the researches were amazed. When they asked him his age he said “57”.
