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 to two step at live concerts, local festivals, or zydeco dance halls. With Carolyn Spivey as their director, the Zydeco Ballers have been doing what they do for 13 years, incorporating physical fitness and culture into everything they do. You can learn everything from traditional zydeco and the two-step to line dances and swing out. 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.
