Road Scholar
Program #20071RJ
5 Days | 4 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Experience the rich traditions of Cajun and Zydeco roots music, and dance to the beat of southwest Louisiana’s exciting and unique rhythms. Cajun and Zydeco music were born similarly and evolved differently, both achieving worldwide popularity. Learn how these folk music styles exemplify the joie de vivre of the Louisiana cultures from which they emerged.


Highlights

• Experience firsthand these two musical traditions and learn in lectures and presentations about their differences and similarities while trying out steps for yourself.
• Take a field trip to the Vermilionville Performance Center and enjoy dancing and live music.
• Led by expert instructors, dance the Cajun Waltz and the Zydeco Two-Step.

Activity Notes

Walking short distances and standing for short periods of time on field trips. Getting on and off bus. Extended periods of dancing, multiple times!

Coordinated by University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
