Zydeco Line Dance

There is a growing amount of line dances you will see at any given dance or festival and thanks to the local dancers and folks sharing their video's it helps to spread the dances around the Zydeco dance community!  Here is a easy little line dance that you can do to any medium tempo Zydeco tune...

New Festvials - Cajun/Zydeco

Many of the hard core Zydeco dancers head to Louisiana, East Coast or West Coast festivals to feed their Zydeco addictions but there are always new festivals that are well worth the trip to check out.  Here are a couple that are on my radar to check out...

Washington, DC - Dancing By The Bayou Fall Dance Festival - October 23rd Weekend
They have a hell of a good line up with Andre Thierry, Curley Taylor and Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Cha's as well as Bruce Daigrepont and Dennis Stroughmatt..
What I also love about this festival is you can spend a day or two in addition to go check out tourist stuff around Washington during a "nice" time of the year...
Here is their web site link for more details and hope to see you on the dance floor!

Hollywood, FL - Florida Cajun Zydeco Festival - November 12th Weekend
If dancers remember the famous Ft. Lauderdale Crawfish festival that is no more, here is a festival in the next community of Hollywood Florida.  Their lineup is good with Geno as one of their main headliners.  Close by is Miami and Key West if you want to take a day or two more to do a little tourist stuff..
