Re: Re: Cajun Dancing

I have all the ones on Floyd's site..and a few more even. I've been to Louisiana several times..and have seen some of the best dancers from the UK, France, Australia and U.S. here in Europe at the Saulieu Festival. My wife has been a dance instructor..and we've pretty much seen them all and even taken lessons..

The best two to get are Greg Benusas Louisana Dance Home School..which is very well done..and is well informed as Greg did field work all over acquiring footage of dance styles to incorporate..and it is very easy effective learning.

The other, strictly Zydeco, is Mona's second DVD / VID .. "no counting" just dancing.. that's the real deal..and you can do many of the same steps to Cajun music too..

Good luck.. you can't go wrong with those two..to keep you interested and for some immediate results..
