For Instrument Enthusiasts

Lafayette is home to Mouton Accordions, one of the oldest running Cajun accordion shops offering Cajun, Zydeco and Tex-Mex accordions. Make sure to also stop by Martin Accordions, where you can learn about the many steps in creating the accordion and sit back in delight to watch a demonstration of how this joyous instrument is played. For violin lovers, SOLA Violins, located downtown, serves musicians throughout the region, including Baton Rouge, Lake Charles, New Orleans and Alexandria.

Cajun Dance Lessons

Dance like a local with Cajun & Zydeco dance lessons covering everything from the two-step to a waltz. No matter the dance floor, be it your typical wooden floor, a concrete slab and even a patch of green grass in front of the stage, the locals in Lafayette will find a way to dance on it.
