Laissez les bon temps rouler and grab your dancin’ shoes! If you’ve been to any event in South Louisiana you know anytime there’s music there’s dancing. And trust us, there’s never any shortage of music!

If you’re an experienced dancer, or if you want to learn the basic two-step, Lafayette has a dance floor just for you. It’s not about how well you can move, but the fun you have while moving to the music! We’ve compiled a list of dance halls that host dancing events, dance lessons, and of course, live music.
