Join Us for a Night of Dancing!

At our dances, we believe that variety is the spice of life. We encourage you to dance with new partners, whether during our lessons or while the band plays. Dancing with different people not only enhances your skills but also helps you adapt to various styles, making you a more versatile dancer. When you always dance with the same partner, you might compensate for each other’s weaknesses and develop habits that only suit that partnership. By mixing it up, you’ll improve your ability to adjust to any partner, expanding your comfort level on the dance floor and becoming a better overall dancer. Plus, you might just make a new friend along the way. So come join us, and let’s dance together!


Schedule

All CFMABR dances are held on Saturdays, with doors opening at 6:30pm. Arrive early for our free dance lessons at 6:50pm (with paid admission), where you can learn or refresh your skills in the Cajun Waltz and Cajun Two-Step. Live music begins at 7:30pm, lasting until 10:00pm.

CFMA-BR Board Meetings

Our monthly board meetings are conducted on the second Tuesday of each month, at 6:30 pm, at the East Baton Rouge Main Public Library. These meetings are open to the public and we welcome your input. So we will know to expect you, please reach out to our president, JudithKaren Eymard.
