Participation in the Fais Do-do by Youree Drive Middle 8th graders, Shreveport, was terrific

This row of Youree Drive Middle students didn't know they were coming to the stage to wield shakers and strike a pose as Iko Iko played. But, as you can see, they made the most of being on stage in front of some 300 of their peers.

Dancing with some 300 Youree Drive Middle 8th graders, Shreveport

Shreveport 8th graders at Youree Drive Middle were wowed by traditional Bayou State music as they participated in Fais Do-do with Robert Trudeau. In a show that went from cajun to zydeco to New Orleans jazz, the students found themselves able to pick up each style of dancing.
