Have you ever wanted to learn how to Cajun Dance? On Sunday, May 16, 2021, you will have the chance to learn how to do a little Cajun Dancing at the Dance Quarter – New Orleans located at 1719 Toledano Street. Guests will build on the basic foundation of the waltz and the two-step while discussing various vernacular aspects which vary from standards.
Did you know that the Cajun Waltz originated in the late 18th Century in South Louisiana? The music is marked by the use of the fiddle and the Cajun accordion. The music and the dance style was developed for social get-together on a porch or a dance hall called Fais Do-Dos.
