Mark your calendar for an opportunity to dance to a two-time winner of the Cajun French Music Association (CFMA) "Prix Dehors" award! 

The high-spirited Cajun dance music of the New Riverside Ramblers comes from the rich musical heritage of the bayous and prairies of south Louisiana. The band covers a spectrum from old-style fiddle tunes, lively two-steps, soulful waltzes, gritty blues to rockin' honky-tonk sounds – all the sounds from the dance halls and back porches of rural Louisiana.

The Cajun French vocals are at times plaintive, raucous, happy, or sad, but always expressive. Inspired by legendary Cajun musicians, the Ramblers overlay their own infectious feel that gets toes tapping. Their music can be as soulful as a sultry evening on the bayou or spicy enough to grab your boogie shoes – dancers and audiences always “pass a  good time.”
Pop Dancing

Pop Up Dances

Pop-up dances with recorded music are scheduled when the ballroom is available and the mood strikes. In the future, the Concordia might offer Pop Up Dances.  These dances are Occasional -- Last Minute -- Special Opportunities. 

When the Concordia Ballroom has some open dance floor evenings, these Pop Up Dances can provide you with additional time on the dance floor!

Dust off those dancing shoes and join us! Follow us on Facebook or sign up for our newsletter to find out about any upcoming Pop Up Dances.

Barn dancing

Barn Dances

Barn dances are popular family events and the Concordia is the perfect place to enjoy them. These are held when someone in the community organizes one.
The Great River Folk Fest often hosts a fundraiser barn dance in February to support their annual festival. Square and round dances, reels and more are enjoyed.  No experience necessary; the caller guides the dancers along and experienced dancers help everyone have fun.
