Zydeco Dance Lessons

Holy Ghost Catholic Church in Opelousas is hosting free Zydeco dance lessons. All you need is one hour with an instructor to learn a few moves, then you’re ready for live concerts at local festivals or zydeco dance halls. Lessons are taught by CuRobiks instructor, Eva Noel, and the Zydeco Ballers, a local zydeco dance club. Classes are held every Monday in the cafeteria.

Zydeco is a genre of music that became popular in the 80’s by legendary Louisiana artists such as Clifton Chenier and Terrance Simien. Opelousas, Louisiana is the Zydeco Music Capital of the World and is widely known for its famous dancehalls, clubs, and zydeco trail rides.
