The CZ Mission

Cascade Zydeco is a 501(c)3 non-profit association dedicated to building and sustaining Zydeco, Cajun, and other Louisiana music and dancing in our community.

Zydeco Wednesdays

Cascade Zydeco hosts a friendly, welcoming DJ dance every Wednesday. We start with a basic zydeco lesson (or sometimes blues or waltz), followed by 2 hours of open dancing. Great for beginners and experienced dancers, no need to bring a partner. Drop in once, become a regular!
Et toi!
