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.
