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.


Cascade Zydeco
at Secret Society
Ballroom

Cascade Zydeco hosts friendly, welcoming DJ dances and live music events on Wednesday nights plus some special events (like Curley Taylor on December 22nd!) We start with a basic zydeco lesson (or sometimes blues or waltz), followed by dancing. Great for beginners and experienced dancers, no need to bring a partner. Drop in once, become a regular!

CZ regularly hosts Too Loose Cajun Zydeco band and Swamp Thang, plus special events with traveling Zydeco talent from other cities. Watch the calendar for the next dance!
