Cajun and Zydeco dancing are traditional dance forms from Louisiana. The Cajun people came originally from France, via Canada, to Louisiana and brought with them their joyous music and dancing, consisting of two-steps and waltzes, with French lyrics. Zydeco music and dance reflects the rhythm and soul of the African-American community that settled in Louisiana. This is easy partner dancing that truly expresses the joy of living. You will learn the basics of these popular dances from scratch. No previous experience and no partner necessary.
