"I signed up for Hilary's dance class with the intention of finding new ways of connecting with my body and feminity. I totally found what I was looking for and more. She managed to create a safe playful space where woman got to own their sensuality and power through fun sassy movements 🔥
Her mixes had me shake my bootie so many times. Can't wait for more!"

Music. Movement. Passion.
Hi! My name is Hilary, I got the nickname Dolla Hilz when I was a teenager and that stuck as my handle when I started hosting a radio show.
I am a passionate leader and creator, dedicated to a lifelong path of learning and exploring. I pour love into all of my endeavours, ever propelled forward by my desire to contribute positively to my communities and networks, while gaining a deeper understanding of my world and existence.
In 2013, I moved to Revelstoke, BC, where I started hosting a radio show on the local community station, Stoke FM. The show was called Irie & Fiery, and explored Caribbean flavoured music. Irie & Fiery aired from 2016 to 2020, and in that time I learned to mix and edit music. I’ve been mixing music consistently now for over 3 years, and I started hosting my own events in 2022. My business partner, Nolan, and I started Flatmates Event Services in 2022 in order to service the Revelstoke and surrounding region in private and corporate event production.
In 2018, I started teaching my own brand of dance classes, empowering local women to move their bodies in unfamiliar ways. In 2022, I ran a series of workshops called BootyWORK. The workshops filled up in less than a week and the feedback from the classes was amazing. I have taught several private workshops for birthdays and weddings.
In 2020, I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and began teaching shortly after. I gave been teaching consistently at Revelstoke's Alchemy Studio. My classes incorporate various styles of meditation, breath-work and movement. I am also available for private lessons.
Aside from DJing, event production and movement instruction, I am working towards a Master’s Degree in counselling Psychology through Yorkville University, volunteering at the hospice and spending as much time as I can in the woods, biking, foraging, hiking and snowboarding.
Please reach out to me if you are interested in booking me for your party or event.
We can’t say enough good things about DJ Dolla Hilz! She DJ’d our remote wedding and working with her was a dream. She was incredibly easy to communicate with leading up to the event. Hilz has an obvious talent for creating the perfect vibe to match the setting and cater to any crowd. It was impressive and watching her slowly elevate the reception into a full blown dance party that lasted for hours. Her set was fun, unique, and kept everyone engaged & wanting more! As a wedding photographer myself, I’ve attended over 100 weddings and Hilary’s set was by far the best that I’ve seen at a wedding to date.
