We can also do a quick review of Zydeco basics right at 2pm.  During the workshop we will cover the styles and moves are seen at bars and festivals through out Texas & Louisiana as well as moves from the east and west coast which involve more turns.

Videos - If the studio works for showing video we will also be showing video clips showing examples of various styles as well as other Zydeco festival video clips.

Free video clip of moves - If there is someone in the group who would like to partner with Greg he can shoot a slow demo of the moves covered during the workshop and send this private video clip to everyone in the class for future reference. (sorry no video from others but I am happy to send you a youtube video clip showing the moves to your email address I can get at the workshop)

Cost $10 for 1hr or $15 for 2hrs.  (this will help pay for rental of the dance studio and gas money on my Zydeco road trip:)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
