With the 8th Annual Lundi Gras Party hot on our heels, there are some of us out there blessed with 5 left feet. You go to listen to your favorite Zydeco band, but you dream of walking out to the dance floor and getting into a heated dance off of epic proportions. Instead, you sit there holding down that table and watch everyone else sashay on by. Have no fear dear reader. You can learn that little step and plenty more, jump out there with your boots, and exclaim, "No one puts baby in a corner!"

Although you might get a few looks from the others, you can two step all the way to Mamou and back after you get back from some dance lessons. There are plenty of places here in town, and most of the time, for free.

The Lake Charles Chapter of the Cajun French Music Association offer free lessons the 3rd Thursday of each month at 3481 E. Prien Lake Road. Stop by or call them for more information 337-562-9156
